Review: My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge by:Pepper Basham

 My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge: Laurel's Dream
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Journey into the Blue Ridge Mountains of 1918 where Laurel McAdams endures the challenges of a hard life while dreaming things can eventually improve. But trouble arrives in the form of an outsider. Having failed his British father again, Jonathan Taylor joins his uncle's missionary endeavors as a teacher in a two-room schoolhouse. Laurel feels compelled to protect the tenderhearted teacher from the harsh realities of Appalachian life, even while his stories of life outside the mountains pull at Laurel's imagination. Faced with angry parents over teaching methods, Laurel's father's drunken rages, and bad news from England, will Jonathan leave and never return, or will he stay and let love bloom?

My Review:
 In each of the "My Heart Belongs" series you are transported to a different time and place. I like the books and writings because it never gets old. Each one is different and unique in its own way. Poor Laurel she has always held out hope that her life would eventually get better and she thought it had when she met Jonathan but setbacks were bound to happen as they sometimes do.

 Soon the two of them were met with many different things design to bring upset and possibly disaster but they have to decide if they will let that hold them back or just make them stronger.

 A great story that teaches you to keep getting back up after you have been knocked down and that true love maybe waiting around the corner.

A great Pepper Basham book, indeed!
