Review: Along a Storied Trail by:Gabhart

 Along a Storied Trail

**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:

 Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn't mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in her books. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it--or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?

Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long she's nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.

As is so often the case, it's easier to see what's best for others than to see what's best for oneself, and Perdita knows who Tansy should choose. But why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?

Saddle up for a heartfelt story of love--love of family, love of place, and the love of a lifetime--from bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart.

My Review:

 The Depression was difficult for everyone. I'm the really poor people had it worse than most. Tansy is community minded and focused. She helps her neighbors. Tansy has become a shining light for most, in the midst of challenges and struggles. She is a librarian, but she is so much more to the people of Appalachia. She gives them hope, a hope that they feel has left them. Tansy takes on the yoke of their burdens, as her own. She sees their plight and their struggles as an opportunity to help.

  Ann Gabhart is such a down home, wholesome writer. She shares the struggles with her characters. She is very relatable and I enjoy her writing. I could relate so well to the main character but also to Perdita the spinster that sees Tansy differently than she shes herself.

A great read!
