Any book by Laurie Alice Eakes will have three outstanding elements: characters you care about, an engaging plot that keeps you guessing, and detailed historical accuracy that takes you back to a time long past. Her latest release, Better than Gold, from Heartsong Presents, is one such story of two sweethearts with diametrically opposed goals.
Lily longs for the bustling city. Ben longs for small town farm life. The reader understands each one's struggle and wants each to reach those goals. But you'll also want Lily and Ben together. Complicated? Impossible? Not under the pen of Ms. Eakes. With attempted murder, the theft of life savings, deadly arson, and rumors of hidden gold threatening their lives and happiness, Ben and Lily learn what truly matters. A delightful story you'll not want to miss.
