From the Back Cover: She’s planted firmly on solid ground.
He’s ready to sweep her off her feet.
The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is a six-year-old. Widowed for three years, Lilly has decided to leave the home of her intrusive in-laws to stand on her own. However, her in-laws find her new life as a cook at Lake Manawa utterly unsuitable for their grandson. When an argument ensues, a handsome stranger–who designs roller coasters, of all things–intercedes on her behalf. But Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.
Filled with the sweet romance of summer, “The Ride of Her Life” will have you laughing out loud and sighing contentedly as you spend the summer of 1906 at Lake Manawa.
The Lake Manawa series took us to 1895 when Ms. Seilstad started her series. ”The Ride of Her Life” is the third and final book in this series and it begins eleven years after the first book. Now the focus is on Lilly and the relationship with Nick a new roller coaster designer. “The Ride of Her Life” is a lot of fun. Lilly is a woman who is trying to take care of her young son while keeping her in-laws at bay. “The Ride of Her Life” is full of wonderful themes of being who you are and who God called you to be. Ms. Seilstad does a wonderful job of transporting us back to a time and place that we will, sadly, never experience again so savor the time spent in these pages. This is an interesting story filled with lots of excitement and romance as well as history. I liked it a lot just as I enjoyed the previous books in this series. I am sorry to see this series end but I am looking forward to whatever Ms. Seilstad gives us in the future.
