I loved this book from the first page to the end.
Hope Irvine is an optimist always seeing the good in people, no matter where they are. Her father becomes an on-the-rail missionary where he goes from place to place in a chapel car. Hope wants to use this opportunity to share her gifts in music with others.
Luke Hughes also enjoys music. He is a miner who does not see a future between the two of them. However, he does feel some jealousy when Hope begins visiting people in other counties with the mine manager. Soon Luke begins to questions the mine manager's true purpose for the trips. Luke decides to speak up so he can keep Hope safe.
I loved the way the author, Judith Miller, is able to blend fiction with history, plus she is able to reflect the morals of a Christian throughout the book. I had never heard about chapel car ministries before but I can see how they served their purpose. Very fascinating.
The characters are fully developed and intriguing. I highly recommend this book to all readers.
I was given this book by Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
