On a bitter December day in 1785, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of master blacksmith Liege Lee in York, Pennsylvania. Just months from becoming a master blacksmith himself, Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship and move west. But Liege soon discovers that Silas is a prodigious worker and craftsman and endeavors to keep him in York. Silas becomes interested in both of Liege's daughters - the gentle and faith-filled Eden and the clever and high-spirited Elspeth. When he chooses one, will the other's jealousy destroy their love?

This well written and narrated hstorical romance takes place in Pennsylvania, USA. This book has memorable characters, a touch of mystery and a story that is both heart wrenching and triumphant. It is a clean Christian read that includes true to life events, which I'm sure, some Christians may find unappealing. I applaud the author for allowing these characters to sin and not be perfect. These imperfections enhanced the believability and made for a better story. Yes, bad things happen to good people....and this book shows that although God may allow a bad situation to happen He still holds our hand and guides us through it. I will definitely be getting the next book in this series.
If you enjoy clean romances with substance.......give this one a try. 😉
Good, clean historic romance novels are my favorite and hate when they get ruined by to much smut & gore.
First book I've listened to from this author and just loved it! Wholesome, yet romantic. Loved the story and characters. The narrator was great also. Can't wait to read #2 in this series.
The book starts out with promise of a nice Christian historical romance. However, about 3/4 through it gets darker and I almost stopped listening. The narrator wasn't too bad. She had loud inflections of her voice at odd times which was annoying, but for the most part I won't mind hearing her narrate again if the story is better. I cannot handle much angst and evil in a light Christian romance. If you don't mind that, you may enjoy the story.
