Synopsis

Lana, a talented Ivy League artist, and Walt, a small-town farmer, couldn't be more different. She arrives in Bluegill, Idaho, ready to spend the summer painting, excited to study under Walt's grandpa, a brilliant but aging artist. The more she is thrown together with Walt though--and the more she spends time with him--the more she realizes her heart may be drawing up its own plans. As the weeks pass, Lana realizes she'll have to choose between following her dreams or following her heart.

My Review

There are so many things that appealed to me about this book! The theme of adoption and the struggle Lana had with being loved and expressing love was a strong one for me. I loved that she is an artist and I related to her on that level as well. The relationship with her friend Ingrid showed Lana's lighter side, and helped it not seem out of character when she connected with Walt even though it was not what she normally would have done. I loved the setting of rural Idaho with an array of characters in the community, including the sneaky and loveable LeVan who taught Lana more about life than she expected from their painting collaboration. There is heartache, humor, sweet romance, and the most memorable first kiss!

There are some references to the characters belonging to the Mormon faith but this is a book that can be enjoyed by all with its universal Christian themes.

(I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)
