Another fun historical story from Karen Witemeyer! When the Academy for Exceptional Youths Schoolteacher Charlotte Atherton works at closes, she must make a decision to protect some of her students (primarily Lily) and flees with them. She soon finds herself being pursued by a tracker, hired by one of the student's grandfathers.
What tracker Stone Hammond doesn't know is that the wealthy grandfather who hired him to find Lily is really a dishonest man, and his reasons for wanting Lily are less than ethical. Also, Lily's mother named Charlotte as the guardian in her will - so he has no legal standing.
Charlotte and Stone soon find themselves on the same team, but the danger has not ended. How will they respond? Can it all work out in the end? Read this book to find out more about this romantic adventure set in the late 1800's.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
