Angel of the Cove (Smokey Mountain Dreams) By Sandra Robbins

I received this e-book from Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley.Com for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:

In the first book in the Smoky Mountain Dreams series, acclaimed author Sandra Robbins weaves a tale of love, loss, and God's faithfulness in every circumstance.
Anna Prentiss has never wanted to be anything but a nurse. Before she can start school in New York, however, her brother sends her to Cades Cove, deep in the Smoky Mountains, to spend a summer apprenticing to the local midwife. Anna is determined to prove herself and then head to the big city.
But nothing could have prepared Anna for the beauty of the Cove, or the community and friendships she finds there. And she certainly wasn't prepared for Simon Martin, the handsome young minister, or the feelings he arouses in her. Has God's plan for Anna changed? Or is she just starting to hear Him clearly? 

My Thoughts:

Angel of the Cove is the first book in Sandra Robbins newest series Smokey Mountain Dreams.  Angel of the Cove is a wonderful story about Anna Prentiss whose life dream is to be a nurse. She was all set to start school in New York but her father passes away and Anna's brother, as the head of the household, decides she needs spend the summer assisting a midwife in Cades Cove, deep in the Smokies. If this all works out then she can start school in the fall.  Anna makes it her mission to prove her skills and her desire to be a nurse.  As Anna starts working and living in Cades Cove she finds herself being submerged in the towns peoples lives, loving Cades Cove, and having feelings for Simon, the minister.  

Angel of the Cove is the first book by Sandra Robbins I have read and I have to say I really enjoyed it.  When I read the book description I was intrigued.  I have become a huge fan of Historical Fiction and being a fan of medical type books and television shows it seemed to be right up my alley. Boy was I right!  Sandra Robbins writes a wonderful story about
of love, loss and God's faithfulness in everything that happens.  The characters in this story are well written and entertaining.  I really enjoyed the people of Cades Cove!  The descriptions of Cades Cove are very detailed and as I read I could see it in my minds eye like I was right there.  Sandra Robbins writes with authority about the time period, Cades Cove, and life in the mountains.  I truly enjoyed this book.  I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction.  I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!!
