LOVING LEAH by Lynn Larson—book review/giveaway

LOVING LEAH by Lynn Larson. This was an interesting read that really didn't go the way I expected it to. In a lot of ways I felt like it was the main character reliving the past and telling the story for a good portion of the book. Then as it was getting exciting and harder to put the book down, the story was being lived by Ethan (which is the way I prefer to read stories).

The history that was told through this story was heartbreaking and something I knew nothing about. That being said, I was disappointed in the ending. Some things were resolved but I was left with more questions than satisfying ends. However, it is a good historical read if you like a story about a piece of history that is not well-known.

:) :) :)

Caught in the middle of a massacre in Lawrence, Kansas, during the Civil War, Leah Donaldson, a twenty-year-old Mormon governess, must risk everything to save two children in her care—and she lives to pay dearly for the decision. Young Ethan Pace loves Leah and can hardly stay still as she is taken away by the enemy for refusing to reveal where he and his sister are hiding.
Five years later, Ethan desperately searches for her, trying to reconcile all that has happened and grappling with his feelings for her. Still idealizing Leah, he hopes she has survived and that he can help her get to Zion and her people. But after everything she's been through since they last met, will Leah overcome her regrets and allow love into her life? Will she come to see Ethan as the caring man he has become rather than the lovesick boy she once knew?
