The Thorn Keeper by Pepper Basham

The Thorn Keeper by Pepper Basham

Let’s begin with the summary:

With her newfound faith, Catherine Dougall hopes to take the remnants of her threadbare life and make something beautiful, even if society shuns every choice she makes.

Dr. David Ross must save his war hospital from ruin, but when his notorious aunt makes an offer he can’t refuse, he must choose between his surprising affection for a reformed flirt or his dreams.

From the beautiful Derbyshire countryside to the trenches of World War One, Catherine and David must learn to trust in a God who never forgets his children and fashions beauty out of the most broken things.

And now, my review:

I enjoyed book one in this series, so I was grateful to have a chance to read book two. 

This author has strong prose. One of the book’s themes was compassion, along with kindness—worthy traits for her to include.

Right from the beginning, I found a profound statement that displayed the author’s wisdom, but the phrases felt like author intrusion.

Unfortunately, I got lost in the story and decided to move to the next book in TBR pile when I didn’t feel hooked. Still, I wish this author all the best.
