Publisher's Summary

The Appalachian mountains are a beautiful place for life and love - but they can prove harsh and treacherous to the inexperienced.

After the death of their father, Ivy and Leah Morgan are suddenly thrust into unpleasant, arranged marriages by their mother. Ivy, however, has other plans. Having fallen in love with Luke Moretz, Ivy is insistent upon running away to Luke’s farm in the Appalachian mountains - far from her home and her mother’s disapproval.

Convincing her sister to come along, the Morgan girls leave town with Luke. Along the way, feelings between Ivy and Luke become strained as Ivy’s true personality and distaste for the mountains begin to show, and Luke must face following his growing attraction to Leah or keeping his promise to Ivy.

Meanwhile, Leah can’t help falling for all the things about Luke that her sister seems to dislike. Mixed emotions and the testing of relationships lead to dangerous and unfortunate circumstances that put any chance of future happiness at risk.

Will this journey bring the sisters closer than ever or drive them further apart than they could have ever imagined?

I absolutely loved this story!

Ivy and Luke fall in love at first sight. Before they have time to get to know each other, Ivy realizes she must leave home or be forced to marry someone not of her choosing. She talks her sister, Leah, into joining her as chaperone. On the trip to Luke's home in the mountains, Ivy proves difficult to deal with and spoiled. Before long, Luke realizes that he had only fallen in love with Ivy's appearance and not who she truly is. Her sister, Leah, however, is everything Ivy is not. She's educated, compassionate, and a hard worker. Although not as beautiful as Ivy, she's certainly pretty enough to turn heads. Unfortunately, he must deny his growing feelings for Megan. Luke already proposed marriage to Ivy and his integrity will not allow him to go back on his word.

The author did a great job of developing the characters in this novel. The romance is heart-throbbingly beautiful. And the narrator does a superb job of telling the story and distinguishing between the different voices. I highly recommend this enjoyable and inspirational book.
