Review of "Forget Me Not"

Review of Forget Me Not

Can a Lost Love be Redeemed?

Seven years ago, Julia McKenzie rejected the man she loved, wanting to experience more of life. Now, at the age of twenty-four, she regrets that decision. What will Seth think of her, when they encounter one another hundreds of miles from home? Will the man she cared for understand the direction her life has taken and love her in spite of her choices?

Pastor Seth Russell has never completely forgotten the girl he once courted. When she shows up in his new home of Baker City, all those feelings return. But why is she sneaking around town late at night? Even more important, will she reject him and break his heart again?

MY REVIEW:  "She hadn't come West with visions of winning souls like some missionaries she knew, nor did she hope to win any contests for high esteem among the stalwart members of the community, but her passion burned to make a difference in the lives of downtrodden people.  If she could make even one person's life easier, it was worth whatever sacrifice she was called to make."  Julia reminds me a great deal of myself.   I have always been rather outspoken and also want to help others.  That is the mark I would like to leave on this world, and Julia has the same attitude.  
This was a delightful novella to read.   I have never had the pleasure of traveling to Oregon but it certainly sounds beautiful.  I did not realize there was such a prejudice in that area against the Chinese people either.   I love learning new and exciting historical facts as I read a lively romance!  5 Stars, for sure!  
I purchased a kindle copy of this book with a gift card I received.   Lucky me!  

About the Author:
Miralee Ferrell 

Miralee Ferrell and her husband, Allen, live on eleven acres in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in southern Washington State, where they love to garden, play with their dogs, take walks, and go sailing. She is also able to combine two other passions—horseback riding and spending time with her grown children—since her married daughter lives nearby, and they often ride together on the wooded trails near their home. 

Ironically, Miralee, now the author of eight books, with many more on the way, never had a burning desire to write—at least more than her own memoirs for her children. So she was shocked when God called her to start writing after she turned fifty. To Miralee, writing is a ministry that she hopes will impact hearts, and she anticipates how God will use each of her books to bless and change lives.

  1. Thank you, Rhonda! I'm so glad you enjoyed my book. The prejudice against the Chinese wasn't just in Oregon, it was prevalent in many towns and states when they immigrated to our country, as it was (for a time) against the Irish and other workers who came primarily for jobs...whether mining or the railroad. Some people accepted them, but many others did not. Blessings!!!
