Lynn Austin Will Delight Readers with Her Winsome Heroine

Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But happily-ever-after life she's planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend, Gordon, breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real world. Then to top it off, Alice loses her beloved job at the library because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression.

Fleeing small-town gossip, Alice heads to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the library in the tiny coal-mining village of Acorn. Dropped off by her relatives, Alice volunteers to stay for two weeks to help the librarian, Leslie McDougal.

But the librarian turns out to be far different than she anticipated--not to mention the four lady librarians who travel to the remote homes to deliver the much-desired books. While Alice is trapped in Acorn against her will, she soon finds that real-life adventure and mystery--and especially romance--are far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.

My mother enjoyed this book so much she brought it to my house and told me I must read it. I think the main character's love of books reminded her of me. I had never heard of packhorse librarians before. Working with horses and books - I think I would have liked that. This was a cute story, but sophomoric and very predictable. Dragged a little longer than needed: She wants to leave Kentucky, she can't leave Kentucky, she goes off to deliver some more books - rinse and repeat. OK if you are looking for something light to read and if you like Christian fiction.

loved this book! i have to admit, when i first read it, the main character's personality annoyed me quite a bit. But i became quite attached to all the characters by the end of the book!
