This is a Christian fiction novel and it was a fantastic and refreshing read. I love Christian fiction and use to read novels by Jeanette Oke with my Grandmother when I was a teenager. Books that are set in the West during the frontier days have always captured my imagination.
LOVE FINDS YOU IN WILDROSE, NORTH DAKOTA was awesome from page one. I was immediately drawn into the lives of Rosemary Jackson and Finn Tate. Mrs. Bateman has an easy and fluid writing style that makes it easy to spend the day with the characters in her book. The book is 320 pages long and I read it in a day.
Because this is a Christian fiction novel, there are no sex scenes to make the reader blush. It is a very tender and sweet story that has well developed characters who depend on the guidance of the Lord to guide them through the heart break and hardships that were so much a part of life on the frontier.
Reading this novel, I felt as if I were making new and very dear friends and I hated to reach the end. I would suggest this book to anyone who enjoys reading about frontier life and how God plays a role in even the smallest aspects of every day life. I believe it is also an appropriate read for young readers.
Here is the description from amazon:
Only the strongest flowers thrive in the wilderness. Rosemary Jackson has traveled all the way to the frozen tundra of North Dakota territory to visit her twin sister, Rachel. It’s been three long years since Rachel left Kansas with her new husband for this wild place. But Rosemary arrives to find only a grave, a grieving brother-in-law, and an underfed baby. She has no choice but to stay and see her sister’s family through the long winter. Finn Tate has just buried his beloved wife, and he cannot seem to take care of himself or his infant daughter. He needs help. But he cannot stand the sight of Rosemary, who reminds him so much of Rachel, standing at his cook stove. When Rosemary settles into a neighboring homestead, Finn realizes she is far more strong-willed than he ever anticipated. But after a series of mishaps on Rosemary’s property threaten her livelihood, it becomes clear that Finn is not the only one who wants her to go back to Kansas. When the wildflowers arrive with the spring, will Rosemary be forced to leave everything she’s come to love in Wildrose, North Dakota?
