A Worthy Pursuit book review.
A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear? Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts. Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them. When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim? Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart. My though: I read this book in the evening and by the next day I was done with it. I have never read any of the author's book and I will look for her other stories. I enjoyed reading this book, learning about Charlotte, Lily, Stephen, and John. She is a teacher to these three exceptional students. Then there is Stone. Can he be trusted? Can he see what is the truth and the lies? *This book was given to me from Bethany House for my reviews. I was given the book for free and these are my own thoughts and opinions. I was not paid to review this book.
