Julia Darling never expected to cook for some cowboys in Wyoming, but when she breaks off her engagement in Salt Lake City, it's the perfect opportunity for her to escape. Determined to stick the job out, Julia faces her biggest challenge yet — letting go of borrowed light to find her own testimony. Set in the early 1900s, this is one romantic adventure you'll never forget!
The book was enjoyable and you get to really like the characters. The ending is a bit forced with the many problems they encounter but I liked the book. One of the better written LDS books.
This is a great read, especially if you like old western settings. The message of the story is that we all need to find and rely on our own individual testimonies and the author portrays this beautifully with realistic examples and lovable characters that provide authenticity to the setting and time period. Although not heavy in the novel, the romance aspect was very well done, not cheesy. Fun and thoughtful read!
I have let this book down by not reviewing it before now. This book changed my life, really. I loved everything about it. Julia's struggle with faith after leaving her strong family is real.
I find comfort in the pages reading about struggles that are relatable and true today! Plus the story is AMAZING! I'd give this book 6 out of 5 stars!
It was a good book. I thought the ending pushed the boundaries of believable but I enjoyed the book.
This story was wonderful. I laughed and cried. I enjoyed reading about how Julia had to find out for herself if she believed the gospel to be true, and how her example helped to encourage Paul to do the same. I will read this again, and again. Excellent!
