Pepper Basham new release "My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge" is a sweet story. It has all the romance, drama and secrets that you will find in her books. I haven't read a book of hers that I didn't love.   Laurel has lived a life quite the opposite of Jonathan's. Jonathan has been given opportunities that Laurel longs for. He is in for lessons in life he has never faced and without warning she becomes his teacher in learning to live life in The Appalachians. Will her dreams come true of furthering her education? Will his father realize that success comes in different packages? I loved these two characters and the way they interacted with his other. I applaud Laurel for helping a greenhorn which she could have just left him on his own. I cheered for Jonathan as he learns the ways of these proud people.

I received this book and all opinions are my own.

Journey into the Blue Ridge Mountains of 1918 where Laurel McAdams endures the challenges of a hard life while dreaming things can eventually improve. But trouble arrives in the form of an outsider. Having failed his British father again, Jonathan Taylor joins is uncle’s missionary endeavors as a teacher in a two-room schoolhouse. Laurel feels compelled to protect the tenderhearted teacher from the harsh realities of Appalachian life, even while his stories of life outside the mountains pull at Laurel’s imagination. Faced with angry parents over teaching methods, Laurel’s father’s drunken rages, and bad news from England, will Jonathan leave and never return, or will he stay and let love bloom?
