A Vision of Lucy by Margaret Brownley

I recently finished reading Margaret Brownley's newest book entitled A Vision of Lucy. This third and final book in the Rocky Creek series was a fun read. It tells the story of Lucy Fairbanks dream of becoming a photographer for the local newspaper, but trouble seems to find her as she looks for the perfect shot with her camera.

I love the way Margaret uses wit and wisdom with each chapter, from The Trials and Travails of a Woman Photographer by Miss Gertrude Hasslebrink, 1878. It's a delight to see what each chapter will bring in this saga of a young woman bent on making a mark with her photographs, and trying to win the approval of her father.

The book also explored topics dealing with the acceptance of being equal in God's eyes as David Wolf is introduced to the readers. This rustic man who lives outside of town is an enigma to Lucy, especially after he saves her from a hold-up and run-away stagecoach. She's determined to learn more about him. Will she open her eyes and camera lens to see what God has for her?

This book was provided for review by Thomas Nelson.
