I am very excited to announce that Faith Blum has recently released her second book in her wonderful Orphans of the West series. A truly inspirational and wonderful story that follows Henry and his sister Caroline through loss and troubles, as they journey in search of a happy ending.
About the book:
Three years ago, an illness orphaned Henry and Caroline Sullivan. The harsh years at the orphanage have forged a strong bond between the pair. Unfortunately Henry’s about to age out, which means he must choose whether to leave his only family behind in relative safety, or take her with him as he pursues dreams of owning a farm. Henry trusts that God has a plan for him, but little does he know that others have plans for him and his younger sister as well. He will need all his faith to find the right path.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Blum has a true talent when it comes to spinning inspirational, heart-touching stories. The characters are well-developed and will immediately grab your interest and steal your heart. I liked Henry right from the start. One thing that stood out to me was Blum's ability to create a character that seemed true to life. Most people have trouble writing teens, particularly teen boys, that come off as true to real life. Caroline and Hope are both sweet, precious little ladies. You find yourself invested in these characters' lives right from the beginning, you NEED a happy ending for them and can't put the book down until you get one. ;)
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an inspirational historical book. You don't want to miss out on this one, or the series as a whole. ;)
The GREAT NEWS: You can get it for just $0.99 until May 31st!
