Born and raised in western Michigan, Sharlene MacLaren attended Spring Arbor University. Her novels include: Through Every Storm, Long Journey Home; the beloved Little Hickman Creek series, which consists of Loving Liza Jane; Sarah, My Beloved; and Courting Emma; the acclaimed historical trilogy, The Daughters of Jacob Kane, which includes Hannah Grace, Maggie Rose, and Abbie Ann; and Livvie's Song and Ellie's Haven, the first two books in her latest River of Hope.

Book two in the River of Hope series and I liked this story slightly more than book one. It could easily be read as a stand alone book, but you do get to catch up with people you met in book one in this story. I liked the whole "marriage of convenience" theme to this story.

Book 2 of the River of Hope series tells the story of Ellie Booth who left her home in the mountains of Tennessee when her step-father commits a crime and threatens her and her mother. Ellie is bright and intelligent but has never learned about the Lord. When her mother sends her to Wabash, In to stay with her fathers aunt. Unfortunately her aunt is no longer alive and Ellie has to find a way take care of herself. When one of the patrons in Livvie's Place (Book 1) suggests she apply for the position of wife to Gage Cooper she is reluctant and knows she doesn't fit all the requirements. But Gage needs help and Ellie needs a home. Taking care of four children is easy after raising goats.

This is a beautiful story, the characters are lively and interesting and Gage and Ellie have a lot of ground to cover before they can be considered "a couple" but Ellie is not a quitter and she will make it work.

Wonderful follow up to Livvie's Song and you get to know what's happening with the characters from the previous book.

I own all Sharlene MacLaren's books and will continue to buy them and keep them in my collection. This is the second offering in her River of Hope series and tells the story of Ellie Booth, who leaves her broken down home in the hills of Tennessee after witnessing something horrible. Alone at 19, with practically nothing to her name, she steps off the train in Wabash, Indiana with nowhere to live.
She answers an ad for a wife/housekeeper/nanny with no hopes that it will work but desperately needing something. She never realizes she will find love, but danger will also come knocking on her door and along the way, Christ also knocks at her door.
Sharlene MacLaren has a unique knack for drawing her readers into the story, making her characters as real as their own family. She writes with feeling,depth and great spirituality.
You will never go wrong with her books.

First, I will say that I absolutely love Sharlene Maclaren's books however, the 1920's is NOT an era that I enjoy. I much prefer the early to mid 1900's that she most often writes about so I was very, very concerned about reading this book. I have not read the first book in this series and am still not sure if I really want to or not based on the reviews. However, I am delighted that I went ahead with this wonderful book as it was in true to her form and absolutely delightful ... it hooked me from the beginning and I absolutely loved it. Ellie drew me in with her heartbreaking ways and I loved the way the Gage teased her ... the tormenting of her step-father was awful but realistic. I was so pleased that she and her mother found their Christian values in a wonderful realistic way and I loved the children being interweaved throughout the book. This one was another keeper for me ... thrilled I read it as I said a delightful surprise and most likely will purchase the 3rd in the series as the first chapter intrigued me.

I read the first three reviews and purchased this one, but not the first book in the series. I LOVE the historical aspects of these books. The roaring twenties is not an era that I've seen a lot, so that part was very fresh. I love how the author mentions the inventions of things, styles, fashion and really how women were starting to mark their spot in this world. I found the story very tender. I also liked the supporting characters that came from the first book and decided to go ahead and buy the first book in the series, which I am currently reading. I will not spoil the ending for you, but let's just say he's my kind of guy!

I did not like the first book in the series, but this one is beautiful. It is about two desperate people looking for a solution and realizes that maybe they could help each other. Now they are married and need to know each other but there are many distractions on the way. Soon they want a real marriage and find they love each other. Beautiful conclusion and ending.

This was a well written book by an Author that I know and who is my face book friend. I have read Sharlene MacLaren's books before and they all are best books that I have read. She is a wonderful lady and author.
Sharlene MacLaren is a new author to me, but I'm wondering where she has been that I didn't know about her. I am a church librarian and her books are just a real inspiration to me and my readers! Will continue to buy this author's books!
