It’s 1868 in the settlement of Good Springs, and Hannah Vestal is passionate about writing fiction and keeping her stories to herself. By lantern light she slips into her story world and dreams the adventures she’ll never experience. When her father asks to read her work, she decides to have it printed secretly for his 50th birthday. Hannah tries to arrange the printing with the settlement’s pressman, but the witty and dapper Henry Roberts won’t make it easy for her to prove her writing is worthy of his ink.

If Henry Roberts did nothing else for the rest of his life but print and bind books, he would die a satisfied man. In order to secure settlement support for his printing press, the elder council says Henry must print an error-free copy of the New Testament before the settlement’s 8th anniversary celebration. He is determined to meet their challenge, but when the enigmatic Hannah proves to be a beguiling distraction, Henry longs for something more than a life at the letterpress.

Get swept away to the hidden frontier settlement where love requires sacrifice, faith-filled adventures await, and sweet romance makes people glad to be alive. Read All Things Beautiful today and embark on an unforgettable journey of the heart in this inspirational story.

My Review: 4 Stars

I love this series and I love the series of their descendants as well. My only complaint is that I would have loved to see more of the people I've grown to love interspersed throughout this story as secondary characters. There are a few, I just wanted more.

Hannah is a writer and I love the bargain she strikes with printer, Henry, that benefits them both. Of course, there are challenges to overcome, pasts to conquer, and things to prove, especially to this new settlement and to doubting family members.

Keith has a way of delivering a sweet and gentle story that packs a powerful punch to the emotions. I genuinely feel like I am a part of the story and I can vividly picture Good Springs by now. These people are more than characters--they're friends, even if they are imaginary.
Content: very mild romance; very mild religious elements
