About: A first love is never easily forgotten…
and coming face to face with that person again can be awkward when the heartstrings are still holding on to the “what ifs.”
In settings from 1865 to 1910, nine couples are thrown back on the same path by life’s changes and challenges. A neighbor returns from law school. An heiress seeks a quick marriage. A soldier’s homecoming is painful. A family needs help. A prodigal son returns. A rogue aeronaut drops from the sky. A runaway bridegroom comes home. A letter for aid is sent. A doctor needs a nurse. Can love rekindle despite the separation of time and space?
About: His Anchor by Carrie Fancett Pagels
1894 – Mackinac Island, Michigan: Robert Swaine, a ship captain, returns to Mackinac Island where his first love, Sadie Duvall struggles to support her siblings. Will she anchor him to the island he has vowed to leave behind?
My Review of His Anchor by Carrie Fancett Pagels: This was a sweet novella that followed a young lady that had lost her parents (one having passed away, and the other having left) and her best friend’s younger uncle, as they and her siblings weather rumors, whispered words that wound, and mistaken assumptions of love. Ending all too soon His Anchor is a perfect hour read that ends with surprises for the heroine.
Rating: 4 and 1/2 stars.
Recommendation: 16 up for inappropriate suggestions from a suitor.
