Book Review–An Appalachian Summer by Ann H. Gabhart

An Appalachian Summer book coverBook Review—An Appalachian Summer by Ann H. Gabhart

The year was 1933, America was in the throes of the Great Depression, causing an economic hardship for many.

In Louisville, Kentucky, Piper Danson’s family was one of those who were not affected by the sudden loss of financial security, and though Piper should have been delighted at that, she really wasn’t because she was not ready to dress up and celebrate her coming out as a society debutante.

Piper wasn’t looking forward to marrying a man her father chose for her, she wanted to marry for love, yet would society allow her to, she thought not, as her life seemed to be controlled by her mother’s demands.

If you enjoy reading historical romance you will surely want to read this book. The story will take you from the ballrooms of high society to the Appalachian hills of poverty as you accompany Piper Danson in her quest to find freedom, love and God’s purpose for her life.
You will be amazed at some of the stark contrasts Piper has to face and overcome as a high society debutante who chooses to spend her summer as a horseback courier helping the Frontier Nurses in the Appalachian Mountains.

This book was very informative, inspiring and realistic. It is an easy read that will touch your heart in many different ways.

I received this book free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
