Tabitha, Girls from the Mountain, Book 1 by Vikki Kestell

From the author of the groundbreaking series, A Prairie Heritage, comes the compelling story of fiery-haired, fiery-tempered Tabitha Hale. Rescued from a life of depravity, Tabitha gives her heart to God and her life to nursing.

As this tenacious, redeemed woman perseveres toward her vocation, her temper and stubborn independence threaten to derail her aspirations. Will Tabitha pass the trial by fire that is necessary for God to truly use her?

And what is Tabitha to do with her feelings for Mason Carpenter, the man who simply refuses to give up on her? Is it even possible for God to ordain a shared future for two such different people, both with fervent callings upon their hearts?

This story was the BEST I've read for quite some time! The twists and turns in this young woman's life are a masterpiece of intrigue ! The beauty of this story, however, is that this girl could be any one of us if our circumstances had been different. —Kindle Reader
