Legacy of Love by Christine Johnson

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical book, Legacy of Love by Christine Johnson. An early Twentieth Century Cinderella story taking place in a Midwest town. This is a good story, I'm sure you will enjoy. I don't think I've read any of Christine's books before but I did enjoy this one.

Anna Simmons was a young woman with big dreams. She didn't want to just get married, have babies, and live happy ever after. She dreamed of digging in ancient ruins, finding buried treasure. Unfortunately her father was crushed in an accident and she was forced to work, cleaning houses to help her family.

Brandon Landers returns to Pearlman, Michigan to the home his father left him in his will. Brandon dreams of opening a bookstore with his fine collection of antique books. His first order of business though is to evict a widow and her daughter. The property was sold just before his fathers death and his lawyer was forcing him to remove the widow. One of the Simmons turned out to be a girl he had just met and admired, now he was throwing her and her mother out in the street right before Christmas. Before he realized what he was doing he offered them the carriage house behind his home and a job as a house keeper. Anna refused his charity but her mother accepted it.

After her mother's fall, Anna is force to clean Brandon's home and is also asked to help at the bookstore. Anna hears about a treasure that is rumored to be in Brandon's old home so she sets out to find it. Brandon's brother arrives, thrown out of college and takes to searching for the treasure too.

I really like the end of the story. A journey of a treasure hunt finds a much greater treasure than what everyone was looking for. They receive help from unexpected people. Its a good story, you need to get a copy.

God bless you all, and have a good weekend. I will be unable to post on Friday as I'm having some test done in Kearney. See you Monday.
