    I love how the prologue pulled me in right away I nearly stopped reading in the first couple of chapters because the plot appeared to be exactly the same as a prior novel However, I m glad I kept reading because I was soon fully engaged in Grace s story She traveled from England to Canada to bring her sister and nephew home Events didn t play out how she expected and she was forced to make new decisions.While the novel isn t heavy on history, the author does a nice job of including period details to make the reader feel they ve visited the setting.This was a well told story and I look forward to the next novel in the Canadian Crossings Series.

    I really enjoyed the story and plot line Plot was so original and enjoyed.However, this book is definitely character driven I really liked Grace She went through a lot in her life, and it s hard to say what one would do in her place Truly liked Virginia as well.Andrew is just between a rock and a hard placehis story is well done.I really enjoy watching the characters grow throughout this novel, and I was drawn in to the time and place The reader doesn t get to know much about Virginia and her story, and I would have liked that.I loved the characters, plot, and the faith theme in this book The main characters are strongand their faith tested Definitely a book that will be on my forever shelves.I received this book from the publisher All opinions are my own.The earnest prayer echoed in Andrew s heart, and for the first time in a long while, a measure of peace spread through him.Only God can change a persons heart , Grace All we have control over are our own feelings and actions.This was the kind of love Virginia craved Passionate, powerful, and at the same time, sanctioned by the Lord.

    Wow Can there be a story full of lies, manipulation and overreactions All the main characters are supposed to be Christians, but not one truly honors God The gardener, the pastor and the ex landlady minor characters are the only ones who seem to take their faith seriously I just wrote a scathing review in detail, and decided to cut it out It s enough to write that I did not like this book at all.Three stars because it kept my interest, but down to two stars because of the way the Christians act throughout I would not recommend this book.

    Full review to come, but for now, let me just say it was a surprisingly good book I wasn t sure what to think going in, but it ended up packed with heart and awesome The romance was sweet and clean and not too predictable which is a huge thing for a book of this genre , and the side plots were cool Christian was so sweet I liked Ginny and Collin a lot, too, and the reverend.

    I enjoyed this English and Canadian historical romance by Susan Mason The characters were unique and interesting Though Grace made some mistakes, I found myself cheering for her as the story progressed Andrew became a worthy hero after he finally realized what was most important in his life I liked seeing how they both changed and grew through the events of the story Well done and highly recommended

    Thank you, Susan Anne Mason for the free book I enjoyed reading the story of Grace and Andrew There were many obstacles they had to overcome It must have been very hard to have lost a loved one during World War I and then came the Spanish Flu that wiped out many lives It was very difficult for the Easton family to get over their son s death, but Grace had to overcome than her share of sadness Also, Grace needed to venture from her homeland Through it all, Grace showed grace and kindness She was a very strong woman.

    Mason does an excellent job of writing family dramas the first series of hers that I read was about the O Leary family, and the next novel was a standalone about a complex family tree, hidden for years This book begins a new series, but the relationships within and between these families are both complicated and difficult The result is an engrossing read that kept me turning pages and hoping for a happy ending, even as I couldn t see how it could realistically happen I think most people will readily sympathize with the two main characters I could relate to Grace in many ways though I have thankfully not been burdened by guilt to this extreme, I could imagine how regrets and fear might take hold and lead to disastrous choices Andrew s difficulties are not the same, but he is no less burdened by the heavy familial duty he places on himself There is a lot in this book about perception, how we see others and how they see us When feelings are hurt and pride gets in the way, relationships suffer But I absolutely loved how this book shows that it doesn t have to be a permanent condition though not easy, resolution and restoration are possible We have far in common with each other than we know I really enjoyed this story of family, of misunderstandings, and of reconciliation This is an engaging novel and an emotional beginning to the Canadian Crossings series The characters are relatable and the setting is unique without being too far removed from other historical locales I look forward to reading Emmaline s story next, and hopefully there is a book in the works for Quinn as well I received a review copy of this book from the author and publisher but was not required to write a positive review The thoughts expressed are both honest and my own.

    Full review on FaithfullyBookish.comGrace is a hardworking, dutiful daughter and devoted sister She entangles herself in a sticky web of half truths and secrets kept with the best of intentions, of course I can sympathize and even justify Grace s choices but only to an extent Andrew, while far from perfect, is between two rocks perhaps three and a hard place thanks to a string of unfortunate events and familial expectations.When you read hundreds of books each year like I do, it s to be expected that an occasional book falls prey to a bad mood or triggers an unfortunate memory That s, unfortunately, the case for me and The Best of Intentions However, my own lackluster experience with this story won t keep me from reading the following books in this series and I do recommend it, especially to readers who don t have my odd communication pet peeve.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review The opinions expressed are my own.

    As I read this book the title became and obvious of the, little white lies, or big ones, I could understand the author putting Grace in the position of wanting to fulfill her sister s wishes and also wanting to be in life of this young child.I found myself quickly page turning as we become involved in these characters lives, some you will quickly come to love and others, the old saying if you can t say something nice, don t say nothing at all , sure comes to mind.It has been one hundred years since WWI and the horrible Spanish Flu, and it is quickly fading from memories, I love that there are stories that help keep alive what this past generation went through and thank the author for bringing it to the forefront.I am looking forward to the next book in this series, and hope to catch up on the lives of those we have already met.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
