Synopsis: Where Luck Meets Trust, Miracles Can Happen
Cristy Haviland served eight months in prison, giving birth behind bars to the child of the man who put her there and might yet destroy her. Now she's free again, but what does that mean? As smart as she is, a learning disability has kept her from learning to read. And that's the least of her hurdles.
Georgia Ferguson, talented educator, receives a mysterious charm bracelet that may help her find the mother who abandoned her at birth. Does she want to follow the clues, and if she does, can reticent Georgia reach out for help along the way?
Both women are standing at a crossroads, a place where unlikely unions can be formed. A place where two very different women might bridge the gap between generations and education, and together make tough choices.
Somewhere between the townships called Luck and Trust, at a mountain cabin known as the Goddess House, two very different women may even, if they dare, find common ground and friendship.
An insightful exploration of the meaning of family and the healing power of friendship ... women supporting women. Emilie Richards writes from the heart covering current social issues and life lessons with compassion and a healthy dose of hope.
We re-visit many of the characters I adored from One Mountain Away, they're the trustees of the mountain cabin called The Goddess House, a safe haven for women needing a second chance or fresh start. In no time I was invested in Cristy Haviland's life, you just can't help caring. Georgia's story was equally compelling and I loved the brilliant but troubled Dawson Nedley and the quiet strength of Sully.
The romantic threads are subtle, not the main focus of the story but a sweet addition. I'm looking forward to seeing how these relationships play out in future installments.
This can easily be read as a standalone, but the experience will be so much richer if you start with One Mountain Away. Besides, it made my favourite read list last year, so why would you want to miss out? Somewhere Between Luck and Trust is not the sob-fest of One Mountain Away but it touched my heart, I'm loving this series and Emilie Richard's beautiful writing.
