Book Review - A Path Toward Love by Cara Lynn James
A Path Toward Love is written by Cara Lynn James and is published by Thomas Nelson.
I have this book on my Kindle Fire. I love reading in the dark with my lit-up e-reader, especially when it's a book as good as this one is. Here's the gist of the story:
Katherine Osborne is recently widowed, having run off earlier with a dashing young man whom she thought was her true love. As it turns out, he was not all that she thought he was. Katherine's father persuades her to leave her struggling orange groves - the best thing that her deceased husband left her - to spend a restful summer in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. She does so, albeit begrudgingly at first.
Over the summer, Katherine finds that the rest for which she yearned was not the real reason for her visit. Her mother has other plans - plans that might not be in Katherine's best interests. Things really get interesting when she finds that she is in love with one of her childhood friends, Andrew. Of course she can't marry him - her parents and their friends would never go for that! Instead, she is to marry Andrew's cousin, the wealthy and socially acceptable Randy.
Katherine learns to lean on God because, in the end, He's the only One she can count on.
As I read through A Path Toward Love, I found myself studying Ms. James' writing style and the way she cleverly wove this story. It is an interesting and well-written novel that kept me turning the pages long after I should have been asleep. I love it.
