The logging industry in eastern Texas is booming, and Deborah Vandermark plans to assist her family's business now that she's completed college. Unexpectedly, her best friend, Lizzie Decker, accompanies her back home--fleeing a wedding and groom she has no interest in. Deborah, the determined matchmaker, puts her sights on uniting her brother and dear friend in a true love match.
Deborah soon meets Dr. Christopher Clayton, a much-needed addition to the town. As their lives intersect, Deborah realizes that she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she was trained in. But when typhoid begins to spread and Lizzie's jilted fiance returns, Deborah wonders if true love can overcome such obstacles...for those dearest to her, and for herself.
Embers of Love
I never write reviews. Ever.
This book is a cut above everything I have read.
The people and situations are real, as are the emotions.
This book is well worth the time to read it, and the time to review it.
As I live in Lowell Massachusetts I am off to a book store to find what this author has written about the Lowell Mill Girls.

I like the story it keeps you wanting to turn the pages. But the endings of the books I have read are just awful. The story just drops off, like dropping off a cliff.
A beautiful and quick read with a great plot line with surprises along the way!
