River to Redemption by Ann H. Gabhart


36569429River to Redemption

by 

Orphaned in the cholera epidemic of 1833, Adria Starr was cared for by a slave named Louis, a man who stayed in Springfield, Kentucky, when anyone with means had fled. A man who passed up the opportunity to escape his bondage and instead tended to the sick and buried the dead. A man who, twelve years later, is being sold by his owners despite his heroic actions. Now nineteen, Adria has never forgotten what Louis did for her. She's determined to find a way to buy Louis's freedom. But in 1840s Kentucky, she'll face an uphill battle.
Based partly on a true story, Ann H. Gabhart's latest historical novel is a tour de force. The vividly rendered town of Springfield and its citizens immerse readers in a story of courage, betrayal, and honor that will stick with them long after they turn the last page.

My Thoughts:
River to Redemption is a great book! I really enjoy books by Ann Gabhart and this book was just as fantastic as her other books. This book does not disappoint, especially with the history and time period in which this book was written for. The characters are fantastic and the faith they displayed is amazing! Even when things were looking dim, they still continued to pray, believe and God still saw them through.  This book is a great romance, adventure and make sure the tissues are close by. I give this book 4.5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required and all opinions expressed here are my own.
