But one of the children has a wealthy grandfather that the child’s mother insisted her daughter not go back to. When that grandfather hires a retriever to bring his granddaughter back Charlotte gets more than she bargained for in the form of Stone Hammond.
I think reading an unrivaled book just prior to reading this one really colored my concentration as a result I had a difficult time taking an interest in A Worthy Pursuit. It’s a sweet enough story that deals with trust, hope and love but I was so shell-shocked after reading the other I probably should have read this one a day or two later. Charlotte is also an ideal heroine, graceful, kind but with a fair amount of grit and determination. She was probably my favorite of all of Karen’s heroines. Overall it isn’t a waste of time, but an ideal book is your looking for some time to relax and take in an easy read. It has some of the characteristic humor one finds in Karen Witemeyer’s stories which is always a welcomed addition.
