Where courage calls

Deciding she has a greater calling, Beth thatcher decides to leave her sheltered life of wealth and culture to teach school in a small coal mining community out west. She was however, not prepared for the desolation she would face upon arrival. Fighting the urge to run back the same way she just same, she overcomes and settles into the quaint life she will call her own for the next year. Hardships arise at every turn. But she is determined to find a way to bring hope into this grieving town of widows and immigrants. Even at the cost of her health, she pushes on and opens doors this town was hesitant to open. And makes friends in the unlikeliest of places. For a girl who thought she'd never last a year in such an isolate place, she finds herself scrambling to get accomplished everything she has on her heart before her time is up. Sewing her heart into all she puts her hands too, Beth is finding purpose in all God has laid put for her to do... And she may even find love! I enjoyed this light hearted book. I used to sit around and read Oke to my great grandmother, as a Child. So I have very fond memories of her books. This is the first I have read as an adult, and I wasn't disappointed. I definitely felt the urge to keep reading on to see what would happen left off at the end feeling hopeful . I do hope there will be a sequel to this book. As I'm very interested to hear more of the story. I received this book in exchange for an honest review
