My Review:

If you like a story that has really well-developed characters, a wonderful message of how God is in the beauty of nature, a romance between a nature-loving young woman and an emotionally broken park ranger, then you need to pick up The Road to Paradise.

I was touched and inspired by Marge’s love of nature. It made me relate to how I feel when I am at a national park or just when I commune with nature at daybreak. When a menacing entrepreneur named Philip shows up, the fight begins to save the park from over-commercialization and destruction. If Philip has his way, Mount Rainier would never be the same. This book has everything.

There was so much beauty packed into the pages, poetry, scriptures, and natural animal sightings, it was a delight.

There was also tons of danger, the dangerous elements, dangerous decisions and dangerous people. As I mentioned this book has a bit of everything with that nostalgic setting of 1927 Mount Rainier. I was provided this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for this honest review. I will most definitely be reading more by Karen Barnett as soon as possible. Her writing style is so easy and enjoyable.
