Review: Where the Road Bends by:Rachel Fordham

 Where the Road Bends

**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:

As Norah King surveys her family land in Iowa in 1880, she is acutely aware that it is all she has left, and she will do everything in her power to save it--even if that means marrying a man she hardly knows. Days before her wedding, Norah discovers an injured man on her property. Her sense of duty compels her to take him in and nurse him back to health. Little does she realize just how much this act of kindness will complicate her life and threaten the future she's planned.

Norah's care does more than aid Quincy Barnes's recovery--it awakens his heart to possibilities. Penniless and homeless, he knows the most honorable thing he can do is head on down the road and leave Norah to marry her intended. But walking away from the first person to believe in him proves much harder than he imagined.

My Review: 

 I recently got into this same conversation with my husband. The conversation went something to the effect of we have so many plans as children and young adults regarding our future but it rarely goes the exact way we planned. Norah has to marry a man she barely knows in order to keep the family farm. I guess back then situations like this happened a lot.

 Norah has a lot of things to get use to and to gain knowledge of. She is about to embark on some big changes in her life when she finds an injured man on her property. She cant leave him there so she takes him in and nurses him back to health. The only problem is, is that it creates even more difficulties for her.

 A very telling tale of hard times on the prairie and it shows us that many times decisions had to be made regardless of feelings.

Great read!
