Christy Martenson has written a lovely historical fiction story located in northeastern Washington State. Set in the era right after World War I, Christy has captured the aura of the time. Like a memory, we are given snapshots from the language of the time to canning produce and showing the normal daily living.
Grace lost her beloved husband in the war. But he left her with a daughter, Allie, and their home, Halstad House. Grace, looking for a way to support herself and Allie, accepted boarders into their home.
At first, serving and caring for boarders was difficult, but God is in the business of changing lives. Add in an old flame, a wise new boarder who becomes a mentor to Grace, and an evil bad guy up to no good, and a most enjoyable story emerges. You’ll keep turning the pages!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary digital review copy of Halstad House from the author.
