For Time & Eternity by Allison Pittman
Angie's Take: Loving this book! For Time & Eternity follows the story of Camilla Deardon. Camilla falls in love with Nathan Fox. As she feels torn between family and first love, we follow her into a wilderness full of twists and turns. I love the characters Allison brought to life. They're wonderfully full of relational personalities. I feel Camilla's emotions and understand how and why she makes the choices she does through the story. Gorgeous work! Not so much the cover. It's too drab to have drawn my attention. But just like a person can glow from within, this book does! A must read!
About the book: All Camilla Deardon knows of the Mormons camping nearby is the songs she hears floating on the breeze. Then she meets one of them—a young man named Nathan Fox. Never did she imagine he would be so handsome, so charming, especially after Mama and Papa’s warnings to stay away. Though she knows she should obey her parents, Camilla can’t refuse her heart. But even Nathan’s promises cannot prepare her for what she will face in Utah.
