A Worthy Pursuit



Title: A Worthy Pursuit
Author: Karen Witemeyer

Year: 2015
Publisher: Bethany House
Stone Hammond is in pursuit of a child kidnapper. He finds his prey, but soon begins to be uncertain as to if his employer is on the up and up. He must be sure of his evidence before he makes a decision as the welfare of a young girl hangs in the balance. She seems well-cared for by the teacher who took her, but Stone can’t trust how things appear. He makes a deal with the teacher to stay around, help with chores and get to know the children under the tutor’s care until he receives the proof he needs. Just as proof arrives, so does trouble. Stone and the teacher must leave immediately with the children to find safety with a friend. Will trouble follow?
Charlotte Atherton has just lost her job due to her employer suddenly closing the school where she has worked for ten years. She is not about to lose the young girl who has been put in her care by the girl’s mother. Charlotte just knows that if the girl’s grandfather takes her away, she will suffer. Charlotte decides to take action before it is too late. Two months later her groundskeeper captures a man lurking about her property. She discovers he is after one of her former students and wants to return her to her grandfather. Charlotte knows she is in the right, but can she convince this man of her innocence? Soon she and the children are forced to flee again, but this time they have a strong protector. Will Charlotte allow him to become something more?
I thoroughly enjoyed this historical romance by Karen Witemeyer! The character of Charlotte was so admirable in her treatment of the children under her authority/tutelage as well as Stone when he first arrived and was a known enemy. She exemplified some great Christian qualities with her advice/instructions as well as with her actions. Stone was also a good, strong, Christian man in the story as well, showing his love through his actions by protection, reassurance and steadfastness. This is a great book to read for a wonderful afternoon of entertainment.
My rating is 5 stars.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.

Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
