5-Star Review of "Joline's Redemption"

Review of Joline's Redemption

(Land Rush Dreams #2)

by Vickie McDonough


Joline had lofty dreams of love and luxury, but after her husband leaves her and she makes a series of fateful decisions, Jo has fallen as far as any woman can. Bereft of all hope and with the threat of losing her son, Jo seeks refuge at her sister’s home. Jo has a long list of secrets to keep and has to look over her shoulder, as the man she’s running from may show up anywhere, anytime. Is it possible that God can redeem Jo, and give her hope for a happy future? Find out in Joline’s Redemption—book 2 in Vickie McDonough’s Land Rush Dreams trilogy.

MY REVIEW:   I loved this book!   Joline or "Jo" as she is called is so lovable and Baron is every woman's dream come true!   I did not read the first book in this series and it did not keep from understanding the storyline.  I would like to find and read it now though, after reading Joline's story.   Book one tells Lara's story and book three will focus on Sarah.  It really was a sad time in our history when women had to be so dependent on men that, when alone, they were often forced into horrible conditions and situations.  Jo finally runs back to her sister and her family for help.  They are definitely glad to see her and happy to welcome her back into the fold.  Who or what will be Jo's redemption?   Readers will love finding out!  
         I have often thought I would like to live in the 1800's but many things in this book make me rethink that desire.   Would you want to live in this time period?    If so, what would be your favorite part?  What would you dislike the most?   
          I rated this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to those who love historical fiction and Christian romance.
          I received an ebook from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
