Delightful story -- Heart on the Line
Heart on the Line is exactly what you expect from a Karen Witemeyer book -- a delightful story with fun characters and lively adventure.
A female telegraph operator in a town populated mostly by women and her bicycle-riding male counterpart in a nearby town ensure an entertaining read. The story includes danger and romance, with plenty of quirky characters to keep things lively.
This is the second book in the Ladies of Harper's Station. It works well as a stand-alone, but I look forward to reading the first book to answer questions about some of the characters and their stories.
I highly recommend Heart on the Line for anyone interested in a fun historical story.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts for this review.
About the Book:
When Danger Arrives, It's More Than Just Her Heart on the Line
Grace Mallory is tired of hiding. She hungers for a normal life, perhaps even a suitor like two of her friends in Harper's Station have found. But when the man she believes responsible for her father's death discovers her whereabouts, survival takes priority.
Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His fellow telegrapher, the mysterious Miss G, has been the ideal companion. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--over the wire has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intends for him. However, when he intercepts an ominous message and discovers her life is in peril, Amos must shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires.
