Keeper of the Spirit-A Book Review

Overview From Barnes and Noble


Minnesota lumber baron Tyler Wilkins knew he needed to come to grips with the death of his wife. Little did he understand that his business trip to New York would be the beginning of a journey to find peace within himself and a love that sometimes happens twice in a lifetime.
Beautiful Emma Sanders has her entire world mapped out. Being the daughter of one of the richest shipbuilders in New York in 1880 guaranteed her a life of leisure. It also guaranteed the option she'd chosen-to remain single and manage her father's company someday. That is, until Tyler walked into her father's study and turned her world upside down. Crossing paths with this one sad man would change the course of her life forever.
The mysticism of an old Indian brave...a forgotten evil that lurks in Emma's past...one tragic hour in their lives, will all combine to lead them to a future filled with trust and understanding...and the discovery of peace and love that a man and woman can share.

A good book! If you like love stories with happy endings then this book is for you! But, there is trouble along the way. And a pretty nasty rape scene which results in a miscarriage. The author writes well. You will get to know the characters of this story well. You will fall in love with Tyler and wish he could cross paths with you. You will love Emma and wish she were your sister. Or your best friend. You will hate Samuel and wish that you could be the one to kill him. This is the first book in a series. I actually downloaded loaded this as a Friday Freebie sometime ago. Glad I wandered into my Nook Library and took it off the shelf!

A good strong *** three stars.

  1. Sounds like a good book! I have so many free downloaded books I'm trying to weed through them before I do any more, but then I see something interesting......

  2. It's been forever since I read a love story.
    But(!) I know a young lady down South who'd really enjoy this.

    1. Probably not. Unless they come out as freebies. Or I get bored with really, really good books! Hope your weekend is grand too!

    2. Oops. I was hoping to get back here before you replied. It felt like Friday to me. Wishful thinking, I suppose. Anyway, that's why I wished you a great weekend.

  4. I like a good series and characters I can root for. Every time I read a good review it makes me want to read the book. The problem is I don't write the titles down. I should keep a list.

  6. I do love a good freebie. Lately, the free ones I find are pretty awful. But through free books I did find some of my favorite authors.

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
