An independent spirit is important to Carly, the main character in a brand new romance, Covered Bridge Charm by Dianne Christner. She is not the typical conservative Mennonite woman; unmarried at 27 and living alone is highly unusual in her community.
But it’s hard to not like this spirited young woman with a soft heart and a pink bicycle. Carly has big plans and ideas for a local assisted living facility where she is a caregiver. Soon she discovers not all is right with her ideal world, neither at the facility nor with her new friend, Adam.
The next day as Carly flew down the hill at the end of her street, cold air burned her red swollen eyes. Into the wee hours, she’d wrestled between believing Adam or reading more into his actions. If he decided to move to Indiana, she’d be devastated. In her misery, she discovered a deeper root for her distress. She was lacking God’s peace.
What would we do about this lack of peace in the midst of problems stacked upon problems if we were Carly?
Carly immerses herself into the charming facility residents she cares for daily. She discovers fascinating lives that have hidden stories of their own. Romance blossomed. Affection grew. Love lost. Passion reunited.
If you are a fan of ample dialogue, this book will become a favorite. Christner uses her best skills for continual, moving verbal exchanges that keeps the pace exciting–all with a dollop of melodious rhythm.
