Today I am reviewing The Road to Paradise, a Vintage National Parks Novel by Karen Barnett.
Here is a brief synopsis:
In 1927, Margie Lane, an avid naturalist, convinces her Senator father to procure her a position at the fledgling Mount Rainier National Park.
Since Ranger Ford Brannon lost his father in a climbing accident, he doubts his ability to protect the park and its many visitors.
He certainly doesn’t relish the job of watching over an idealistic and privileged young woman with no practical survival skills.
When Margie’s former fiance sets his mind on developing the Paradise Inn and its surroundings into a tourist playground, Margie and Ford will have to work together to preserve the beauty and simplicity of this mountain hideaway, but the developer’s plans might put more than just the park in danger.
I was excited to meet Karen Barnett at the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat this past August… and she graciously gifted me a book. When I offered to read and review her book, she autographed another book for a giveaway!
If this book sounds interesting and you would like to win a copy, leave a comment… and you just might be the winner of a copy of The Road to Paradise: A Vintage National Parks Novel.
The promised view of the mountain peak waited, cloaked in mist like a tissue-wrapped gift not ready to be unveiled.
Doesn’t that make you want to keep reading? I certainly did…and I did!
This book is inspiring, with humor and colorful characters. Margaret Lane, the daughter of a U.S. Senator, and Chief Ranger Ford Brayden are indeed inspiring characters, as they fight to save the national park.
