I loved this book! Having read other books by Mrs. Brunstetter I was looking forward to receiving this one in the mail and quickly read it in a couple of days. The book follows the story of Kelly McGregor. Having an older sister who ran off and got married to the first person who would take her away from the life she was living, Kelly is the obedient daughter who spends her days walking on the shore alongside her dad's boat hauling coal down the river in Pennsylvania. When she is able to catch a break, she uses her time to sketch pictures of what she has seen during the days. At one of the stops she meets Mike Cooper who owns a general store and shows her what the true love of God means to a person.
I think one of my favorite things about this book was how Mrs. Brunstetter did not focus so much on the Amish theme as most of her books do. It was neat reading a book written by her which told the story of someone from a different background. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
