I have no words..... ok, yeah I do.
This book sucked me right in,  I wasn't into contemp romance up until recently, but I loved this book.
This is actually the very first book Mrs. Price wrote, yet it was the last (for now until she writes more) of hers that I have read.
Caroline, is shy and quite naive really.  That is until she "heals" after finding the town of Promise.  And making friends with Faith and Rachel.  Then she meets Luke, and she blossoms.
For me this was a great book to read at the end of the year.  
Its been a long time since the author published this book, but I do hope she revisits these characters and gives us more.  
*You can tell that the author is not from the US, where the story takes place.  She uses more European words verus our words.  But its not a big deal.  
**Yes, this is an earlier work from the author, and it does need to be re-edited and revisited for an update.  But none of that distracted me from the story.  Please give it a chance.
