Overview
Intriguing Glimpse into the Past by Bestselling Historical Author Judith Miller

With her penchant for seeing the best in everyone, Hope Irvine sees a world full of good people in hard places. When her father accepts a position traveling in a chapel car as an on-the-rail missionary, she is determined to join him in his efforts and put her musical skills to good use by serving the mining families of West Virginia, saving their souls, and bettering their lives.

Luke Hughes shares Hope's love of music and her love of God, but as a poor miner he knows he can offer her no future. Still, the notes she sings resonate in his heart. When she begins to travel with a young mine manager to neighboring counties, Luke can hardly suppress his jealousy. It isn't until he begins to suspect these missions of mercy might be the mine manager's cover for illegal purposes, though, that Luke feels justified in speaking up. But how can he discover the truth without hurting Hope or, worse, putting her in danger?

This book is inspired by 19th-century itinerant preachers and chapel cars, specially built houses of worship in train cars used to spread the Gospel throughout sparsely populated parts of the U.S. Hope Irvine, a preachers daughter, is always thrilled to join her father on his adventures as a chapel car preacher and cant wait to set off on his new assignment to Finch, W.Va. Although she and her father want to help, the coal mining community is reluctant to accept them. Luke Hughes, a local miner, finds his faith refreshed with the arrival of Hope and her father. Luke offers to help them navigate Finchs closed culture, but quickly they discover the towns many challenges come from both inside and out. The story becomes murky, however. The book is categorized as a romance, but scenes of authentic romance between Luke and Hope are few. Also disappointing is the prominence of a third character, from whose point of view Miller frequently writes scenes,who lacks a character arc and abruptly exits with little resolution. Millers (The Artisans Wife) fans will enjoy this romp following the traveling chapels of yesteryear. Agent: Wendy Lawton, Books & Such (Apr.)
