With her past in shambles, how can she fashion a future of hope?

Catherine Dougall’s past of manipulation has left her future in threads.

Dr. David Ross doesn’t help either. His kindness, sacrifice, and tenderness tempt her to impossible dreams. A fallen woman doesn’t merit a fairytale.

David Ross has made every effort to keep his life above reproach. His passion for the sick pump fresh purpose through his choices, but without financial support to maintain his war hospital, all is lost. When his notorious aunt offers an easy solution, David is tempted to give in to her demands, but his growing affection for the reformed flirt, Catherine Dougall, unwinds the careful wall around his heart and offers an unexpected choice.

When the worst of war tears them apart, can love renew the memory of what was lost or will tragedy steal away their hope forever.

From the beautiful Derbyshire countryside to the trenches of World War One, Catherine and David must learn to trust in a God who designs a masterpiece out of brokenness and fashions hope in the most unlikely places.

PENNED IN TIME SERIES

The Thorn Bearer by Pepper D. Basham The Thorn Keeper by Pepper D. Basham The Thorn Healer by Pepper D. Basham


My THoughts:

I recently told a friend that this Pepper Basham book is not a movie–it is a mini-series. Packed full of action, heart, and romance, The Thorn Keeper leaves an impact long after the final words are read. I adored Catherine’s journey of growth, as a person and in her faith. Bittersweet but beautiful, the romance between Catherine and David is one that I certainly won’t forget. And I’ll go ahead and warn you: I’ll likely be talking about it for a long time. It’s just so good! I truly enjoyed this book (and this series!), so I highly recommend it for fans of historical romances with a strong inspirational aspect. I also highly recommend it for emotional cheese puffs like myself.

I received complimentary copies of the books in this series. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Book Boyfriend:

David Ross. All of the heart eyes for Dave! Intelligent, introverted, and slightly ignorant when it comes to women, our beloved doctor certainly has his hands full with spunky Catherine. But his heart of gold and his gentle nature earns the BB Trophy. And he tastes like Christmas, so who can possibly compete with that?!
