Through Rushing Water
Through Rushing Water by Catherine Richmond
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Through Rushing Water by Catherine Richmond is about a Russian born, American implanted teacher Sophia Makinoff. She’s pretty sure she has her future figured out when the man she thought would propose chose another instead. In a sudden decision to join a mission board, with hopes of going to China, she finds herself the new teacher on a small Ponca Indian reservation. Its the last place she wanted to be, but God proves what we want and what we need are two different things.

I loved this story more than I thought I would. I’ve always enjoyed historical type fiction. This one is even loosely based off a true life story. I felt that the story moved well and you actually could get to feel for the different characters. They all become dear and close.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a slowly evolving romance, and looking for a little insight to what it was like back when the west was ‘wild’.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com http://BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
