The publisher says:
"Headed toward a fresh start but tethered by her past, Vivian longs to break free, to find forgiveness and love.At last, the sisters are reunited! The youngest Sinclair, the family“ baby”, is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?
The sisters warmly welcome Vivian to the mountain west, but the wild-and-woolly mining town isn’t ripe with opportunities for a respectable young woman. The youngest Sinclair sister is determined to make her own way, so
when she’s off ered a job as a hostess in a sporting house, she takes it, thinking the position is appropriate for a tainted, unlovable woman like herself. Although she’s convinced she’ll never be asked to entertain privately, Vivian
keeps her employment a secret from her sisters, knowing they’d be mortified—as will Carter Alwyn, the kind and godly sheriff ’s deputy who’s sweet on her.
Vivian is descending into a life of secrets, lying to the very people who love her and could help her heal from her mistakes. Will an outpouring of grace remind her that she is still God’s beloved and that her past can be washed as clean as Rocky Mountain snow?"
I have previously read and reviewed Hodgson's "Too Rich for a Bride" and loved it. While this one doesn't have as many humorous story lines, her vivid desriptions and narrative draw the reader deeply into the story.
Throughout the book, Vivian struggles with feelings of shame, unworthiness and low self esteem. This is a story of grace and redemption.
Even though this is the third book of the series, it is a good stand alone story, but I liked the two books by Hodgson so much I ordered the first book of the series.
