I was so excited to read another book in The Everstone Chronicles by Dawn Crandall. This is book five in the series. The entire storyline follows a group of men and women who meet in one way or another, and each unique story fits together so beautifully. You can read each book alone, but I highly recommend reading them in order, because they connect so well. This particular story picks up from the last book, and explains the tragic events occurring in the life of Nicholette Everstone.
Nicholette is a widow, and she continually imagines what her future might look like. Will she ever find love again? Could her heart even consider it? So much has happened since the death of her husband, and she wonders at the possibility of regarding someone else in the same manner as her William. Those around Nicholette try to comfort her, but not much can be said regarding the most difficult day of her life.
There is so much to be said about these books, because this series contains so many wonderful stories and characters. Each individual holds so much and gives so much to the context of each scene—conflict is everywhere, because love and jealousy abound with each turn of the page. It is so interesting to see how the lives of these characters meld together to create such incredible plots. I recommend checking out this series—perhaps it can be you New Year’s set of books to read! Happy reading!
Check out my reviews of the first four books in this series:
In this captivating novella by Dawn Crandall, Nicholette Everstone is already a widow at the age of twenty-two: her husband was murdered on their wedding day. She has just returned to Boston after two years of mourning in Europe. Although her husband was loving, the marriage was an arranged one, and Nicholette would like to wed again--this time for love...and to someone safe
As she acclimates to life in Back Bay again, Nicholette meets someone she can't help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices Cal Hawthorne takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of "what if" at bay?
