Publisher Description

Stunning Yosemite National Park sets the stage for this late 1920s historical romance with mystery, adventure, heart, and a sense of the place John Muir described as "pervaded with divine light."

Watercolorist Olivia Rutherford has shed her humble beginnings to fashion her image as an avant-garde artist to appeal to the region's wealthy art-collectors. When she lands a lucrative contract painting illustrations of Yosemite National Park for a travel magazine, including its nightly one-of-a-kind Firefall event, she hopes the money will lift Olivia and her sisters out of poverty.

    After false accusations cost him everything, former minister Clark Johnson has found purpose as a backcountry guide in this natural cathedral of granite and trees. Now he's faced with the opportunity to become a National Parks Ranger, but is it his true calling?

    As Clark opens Olivia's eyes to the wonders of Yosemite, she discovers the people are as vital to the park's story as its vistas--a revelation that may bring her charade to an end.

SUPERB!

SUPERB!

Where the Fire Falls (A Vintage National Parks Novel Book #2) is superb! Barnett is at her best when taking her readers on an adventure through one of the National Parks. This novel is set in vintage Yosemite and involves two people who are trying to find themselves. What better place for soul searching than in the splendor and grandeur of Yosemite National Park when it was still extremely new and vastly unspoiled by hordes of visitors? A beautiful young woman is running from her past and trying to paint her way to a wonderful new future for herself and her younger twin sisters. A ruggedly handsome man and former pastor, has been serving as a wilderness guide. As such, he is still helping people find their way and he definitely realizes that the young painter is desperate to find find her way both professionally and spiritually. Each of them have their own struggles but they discover that shared burdens are lighter burdens. This novel is jam packed with everything you want in a great book - excellent, realistic characters, creative plot line, incredible descriptions of the spectacular details of major scenic areas in Yosemite and a dark mystery that runs throughout the book. It is superb! I was provided an ARC of this book by WaterBrook and NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.
