Nothing Short of Wondrous



 About the Book

It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.

Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate's aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. When her 6-year-old son is kidnapped by a poacher who wants the boy to guide him to the place where the last of the Yellowstone bison congregate, Will and Kate must work together to rescue him, save the bison, and protect the park. In doing so, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control. (Goodreads)




My Thoughts


I love National Park history so most any book that has to do with that subject I get excited to read. This book started off pretty good. Of course the setting of Yellowstone is wonderful and I loved the peek into what it might have been like in 1886. I really struggled in loving the characters and that is what made this story simply not my favorite. I think the story line was okay but I just didn't love Kate or William. There are some great chapters that made me keep wanting to read what would happen next. I think if you enjoy National Parks you might enjoy this story. 


Three Stars.
