I loved the characterization Karen Witemeyer created in her new book Head in the Clouds. This book was set in Texas in the late 1800's, which happens to be my favorite time period.
Adelaide Proctor takes a job as governess on a sheep ranch. Her employer, Gideon Westcott is not your typical cowboy, but instead an aristocrat from England. Throw in a five-year-old girl, Isabella, who doesn't speak and a governess who desires a story-book ending. Along comes mystery and intrigue to make a delightful story. I highly recommend Karen's new book.
A free review copy of this book was sent to me by Bethany House Publishers.
