Rebecca Reviews ~ A View Most Glorious (American Wonders, #3) by Regina Scott

Paperback368 pages
Published October 5th 2021 by Revell

Headstrong Coraline Baxter has worked all her life to be more than the spoiled socialite others expect. When her fellow suffragettes in Tacoma, Washington, suggest that she should climb to the top of Mount Rainier to prove that a woman can do anything, she instantly resolves to do it. And if she can climb Mount Rainier, her mother promises to stop pressuring her to get married to the wealthy Cash Kincaid. All Cora needs is a guide to get her to the top of the mountain.

Nathan Hardee may look like a mountain man, but he once ruled the halls of high society. He left all that behind after his father broke under financial pressure from Kincaid. To best Kincaid now, Nathan agrees to guide Cora up the mountain.

Climbing Rainier will require all of Cora's strength and will lead her and Nathan to rediscover their faith in God and humanity. These two loners make unlikely partners in righting a wrong and may just discover that only together is the view most glorious.


Rebecca's Review 3.5 STARS 

"You'll find that I have plenty of stamina and determination .. . . But I can assure you that I have never been good at obeying. You'll simply have to accustom yourself to the fact."

Determination rolled off the lovely Coraline Baxter like waves upon a seashore, or perhaps a better comparison would be . . . . like a waterfall down a canyon. She had certainly made up her mind to represent womanhood in general by climbing Mount Rainier (or Tacoma as some would call it), reaching its summit, and thereby declaring a victory for the women's suffrage movement. But there was another less public reason, escaping matrimony. How in the world had Nathan Hardee gotten himself mixed up in a situation like this?

Such an easy and enjoyable story to read; even if, and especially when, the characters' exploits hit rocky, icy, stumbling blocks, for the readers' steady pace isn't deterred in the least. Watching Cora and Nathan re-calibrate their life callings was most certainly a "view most glorious".

"Cora Baxter isn't a mineral claim . .. . . She has a future and plans of her own." "And that's good, . . . She'll encourage you to have plans too, push you forward, so you can become the man you were meant to be."

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.
