Beyond All Measure
This review is for "Beyond All Measure" by Dorothy Love.
This is the first book that I have read by Dorothy Love and I actually greatly enjoyed reading it.
Ada Wentworth is a young lady that comes from a well-to-do family in Boston. Tragic circumstances have taken her from the top of society in Boston down to the hills of Hickory Ridge Tennessee to be an older ladies companion. She has secured the position through an advertisement in the paper and has no idea what awaits her down in Tennessee. All she knows is that she is penniless, heartbroken and alone.
She is in for quite a shock when instead of the current ladies companion picking her up at the train station, a handsome, strapping young man arrives to cart her off to her destination.
Desperation is what drove her choices but hope and faith will be what sustains her.
I wasn't sure what to expect as I don't read historical fiction that much but this book was a delight. It kept me up far to late one night because I couldn't seem to put it down.
Be sure to check out Beyond All Measure. I look forward to reading other things by Dorothy Love and encourage you to do the same.
