Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn’t mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in her books. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it–or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?
Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long she’s nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.
As is so often the case, it’s easier to see what’s best for others than to see what’s best for oneself, and Perdita knows who Tansy should choose. But why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?
Saddle up for a heartfelt story of love–love of family, love of place, and the love of a lifetime–from bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart.
Along a Storied Trail by Ann H. Gabhart is a novel that grabbed me from the beginning. A woman finds a way to survive during the Great Depression. She has a job that I would love to have, being a librarian. Only her job is a lot more risky than I would like. She is adventurous, outgoing, and smart. The hero is smart, easy going, and adventurous too. This pair did not have it easy. They had trials along the way that just made them better and stronger than before. The ending was beautifully done. Ann H. Gabhart has a way of luring me into her world of fiction and keeping me there. I did not want to leave. I would love to read more books by her that are like this one. It is so good! Love, family, friends, and plenty of adventure inside this incredible read.
