  • An Epic Journey of Adventure and Romance!

    An Epic and Exciting Journey through the mountains that you will not soon forget! Ms. Scott delivers an excellent story of romance, adventure and danger in the wilderness, with strong, deep and compelling characters that will make you rethink about what is important in life! Coraline Baxter is a modern woman for the late nineteenth century. She has a college degree, works at her stepfather’s bank, and is a leader in the suffrage movement for the women’s vote. But her mother, who knows what it is to be left penniless, wishes nothing else for her daughter but to marry a wealthy high society man, regardless of her daughter’s feelings or opinion in the matter. She is to marry Cash Kincaid, a man she despises and would never freely marry. But when her local suffragette group asks her to climb Mount Rainier, to show men that woman can also do things that are thought impossible for the fairer sex, she jumps at the chance. Especially when her mother accepts the challenge that she will not have to marry Mr. Kincaid if she is successful in reaching the summit. But Cora has no climbing experience, nor her stepfather, who wants to accompany her. When they hear about the best and most experienced mountain guide, Mr. Nathan Hardee, Cora is sure he’ll be happy to help them for a generous sum. But Nathan rejects their offer, thinking it too risky to take an apparently fragile woman to the top of the mountain. But when he discovers that Cora is bound to marry Cash Kincaid if she fails to reach the top of the mountain, he changes his mind. He is the man who stole from his father, left them indebted and ruined his family. He is the reason he left high society and came to this small town and bought his land near the mountains, isolated, trying to find purpose distancing himself from a society that is all façade, lies and show, but knows nothing about the real value of every person, regardless their status, and even about the beauty and glory of nature. But is it the right choice to take Cora and her stepfather to the summit, or is he risking everything in this mission, not only his livelihood, but his heart? As they travel among the wilderness and reach higher into the mountains, Nathan discovers that Cora is not like most women, she is not only beautiful, but she is a woman of true character, she is determined, she is kind and hardworking, there is no bluff about her, she really wants to make a difference in women’s lives. And Cora discovers that Nathan is a man with no fake pretenses, underneath his cool demeanor hides a vulnerable and grieving heart, he is humble, he is kind, and he is a man of faith that inspires her to turn her heart to her Creator. This was a wonderful book! The setting couldn’t be more beautiful, traveling upside the mountain, with a “glorious” view, and Ms. Scott makes everything so alive with her vivid descriptions. There’s everything I love in a book: sweet romance, adventure and some danger, and a faith inspired message that uplifts you and makes you turn to God with a grateful heart. A delightful journey with very relatable characters that will take you along in their trials and dreams. I was rooting for them and their chance at a Happily Ever After until the last page! And even the secondary characters are endearing: I especially loved Waldo, and Cora’s stepfather. The villain was a true villain, I have to say. But it added intrigue to the story. I highly recommend this book! It’s the third book in the American Wonders Series, but it can perfectly be read as a standalone. This is a wonderful series, truly! I received a complimentary copy of the book from the Publisher, but wasn’t required to post a positive review. This is my honest and unbiased review.

  • ***ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE STORY AND ALL OF THE RICH

    Tacoma, Washington 1893 *** This story had so much of what I love in this genre; a balanced dual point of view, historical notes, and little gems tucked along the way such as Alpenstock (German for Alp stick), actor's paint for sunblock in the snow, the gain and then loss of women's voting rights in WA, the battle over the name Mt. Tacoma or Mt. Rainier, traveling with panes of glass in barrels of molasses {all of these had me saying to myself "Who knew?"} There was also a bit of danger with heroic moments, plenty of beautiful plant life, actual faith shared throughout with room for growth (also shared), and a sweet, naturally progressing and clean romance. I also appreciated how the ending was resolved as I wondered how in the world they would make things work in their two very different worlds. The author shares some wonderful notes about growing up in the area at the end of the book. I highly recommend this story and the entire trilogy. *** Quotables: "Thank You, Lord, for all this, for allowing me to see, to feel. It truly is a view most glorious." *** Faith Moment: "Lord, help me be Your man. That's the only way to happiness for Cora." *** Tea Moment: The silver tea service glinted on one of the walnut side tables, and an assortment of little cakes sat on the violet-patterned bone china her mother had had imported from England. *** I was gifted an eBook via Netgalley the publisher and author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own without compensation or further expectation. *** SERIES: AMERICAN WONDERS - ALL STORIES ARE INDIVIDUAL AND NEED NOT BE READ TOGETHER OR IN ORDER *** A Distance Too Grand (Grand Canyon0, Nothing Short of Wondrous (Yellowstone), A View Most Glorious (Mt. Rainier)

  • American Wonders

    This is the 3rd book in the American Wonders Series. But not to worry, it is a stand-alone book with new characters than the previous books. It was a nice ending to the series and I have really enjoyed the series which takes you to interesting and captivating places that many, including myself have not yet been able to enjoy personally. Cora has a definite goal and is a strong woman who wants to make an impact on the Women's Suffrage of this time period. If a woman can climb a mountain, she can surely vote! As she takes on the climb of Mt. Rainier, there are many challengers that would be difficult for even the most experienced climber, but she doesn't give up. The historical fiction book which takes place in 1893, has Christian values and is a sweet and enjoyable read. There are challenges to overcome, both personal and physical. It has an adventurous theme, which I really enjoy. The characters are enjoyable and I especially liked Cora's stepfather as he continues to support her in her endeavors. I received a complimentary book from the publisher. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  • A glorious journey

    It’s been too long since I’ve read a Regina Scott book! Brimming with historical tidbits, lovable characters, witty and humorous dialogue, this well-written book with an engaging plot should be on every historical fiction lover’s must-read list. I loved Cora’s independent spirit and determination. Nathan’s backstory and his emergence as a new man with faith tugged at the heartstrings and made him so real and swoony. I felt like I was on the mountain with them as they climbed - and the journey indeed was most glorious. It’s book 3 in the series but can totally be read as a stand alone. I received the book from publisher and via NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a positive comment. All opinions are solely my own.

  • A REMARKABLE STORY!

    Coraline Baxter was not your average woman for the late 1800’s. She was a mixture of that era’s women’s libber and a proper lady that followed all the social customs of time. A suffragette, college graduate, intelligent, creative but she had definite ideas about what she wanted in life. On the other hand she totally under the thumb of her overbearing, social snob of a mother. She couldn’t’ seem to truly stand up to her. To escape her mother’s choice for her marriage to Cash Kincaid, a creepy (in my opinion) socially successful business man, she came up with a plan. Her suffrage group had a publicity idea to draw attention to women’s votes: climb Mount Rainier. Somehow she persuades her mother to agree to call off the wedding if she is successful. I am sure her mother agreed because this was considered close to impossible for a woman, especially one of the “elite” like Coraline. She sets her sights on hiring the best climbing guide there is, Nathan Hardee. He was once big among the wealthy social circles until he left it all behind for a reclusive life in the woods. Not a woman to be told no, other than by her mother, she pursues him until he agrees. The clincher is Coraline has zero climbing experience not in the best of shape. To add to the difficulty her not so healthy stepfather was the only man available to chaperone her. The odds were stacked against her. The story that ensues is filled with adventure, excitement, the unexpected and beautiful scenic descriptions that will ae your breath away! I found it incredible how inadequate their clothing and climbing gear was compared to what is available today! BRRRRR. This made the climb an even greater accomplishment. Coraline’s courage, spunk and sweet spirit won me over! I was impressed that with her snobbish upbringing she was still so loving and accepting of everyone, even those that then would have been considered lower class. Nathan Hardee’s showed such character and integrity, despite his disappointments and bitterness from his past. His strong desire to protect Coraline and her stepfather truly touched me. Throughout the book I just wanted to shake her mother. Her arrogance and attitude of superiority were extremely frustrating. I realized later that all of her misguided attempts to steer her daughter’s future were out of love. She wanted her to have the best and didn’t want Coraline to go through the hard times she had. I wanted to hug Waldo her stepfather. Such a sweet, sweet man that managed to balance his love and support for Coraline and his love and understanding of his wife and her abrasive personality. A story you will enjoy and be inspired by! I received this book from Revell Publishers in exchange for an honest review. The opinions stated are my own.
