The mist-covered mountains are a haven for four women who have been bruised by the pace of the modern world: Hester is drawn to the town of Afterglow to seek answers to her past. Amy hopes a small community will be her refuge from painful mistakes. Ellie has gone home to the mountains in hopes of healing her broken heart. Anna is drawn to her granny's rustic home as a solace from the demands of her career. But, when faith starts to heal their hearts, can these women hide from the reach of romantic love?

Review: Appalachia

User Review  - Marlene - Goodreads

Complicated love stories from Appalachia. Actually I rather liked them. The stories of four women who have been bruised by the pace of the modern world while the gentle strength of the mountain people lull them back to a perspective of peace and faith. Read full review
