"Waiting for Spring?" Why, yes, we are! And a great way to pass the time while waiting is reading! This is a fun book.
It is the second book in the Westward Winds series, but it can be read alone. Madame Charlotte is a young widow with her own dress shop and is working to provide for and protect her son David. Her friends Gwen and Miriam fall in love and plan marriage, but Charlotte is afraid her past will find her. Her fear doesn't stop her from working to help those around her and encouraging others to do so as well. One of people she challenges to make a difference is Barrett Landry. Barrett and Charlotte get to know one another, but is their future together? Will Barrett become senator? Will the baron find Charlotte and David?
This book has relationships, history, and a hint of suspense. The characters are engaging and real. The settings and detail add interest and fun to the quick-moving story. This is a delightful story for your libraries, especially fans of historical fiction. I did receive a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
