My latest book review: Amanda Cabot’s “With Autumn’s Return” (review by Susan Karsten)

I have to say, this book is just right. Very interesting historical details woven seamlessly into the plot.  Author Cabot also brings suspense into the book without laying it on too thick. The story threads are interesting, edgy for this type of book, and fascinating.

Sample

Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1887 was a maturing boomtown.   It held secrets which affected Elizabeth, the main character who is a pioneering female doctor.  Her roommate gets accidentally addicted to a patent medicine made mostly of alcohol.  The town’s finest bordello owner uses ergot, a powerful drug, to dose the prostitutes in her establishment, with scary results.  Elizabeth’s battle to win acceptance is fascinating.  A love triangle involving the “madame”  and the town’s leading mogul provides the catalyst for Elizabeth and her love interest, Jason, to see the love light and overcome all perceived obstacles.

I am not always impressed with current Christian fiction, but this book was engaging, entertainment and worth my time. I do recommend it if you like Christian historical fiction.
