In 1915, it is believed that there isn't much hope for a woman beyond marriage. Yet Abi Leigh Hensley, lover of the written word, believes otherwise. Growing up as the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in the gold mining town of San Francisco, Abi never felt like she fit in with her mother and father's stilted lifestyle. And though she's been raised to believe that her lot in life is to marry, she's always loved to read and write, and has dreamt of being an author all her life. After her parents' failed attempt at an arranged marriage, Abi leaves the comfort of her wealthy upbringing in San Francisco to pursue her dreams of becoming an author in New York City, a place she has always loved. Excitement seems to loom around each corner, yet Abi may be in for than she bargained for. Full of hopes, dreams, and self-discovery, A Castle in the Sky is a novel fans of historical fiction are sure to love.
Lovely story! :) I'm a HUGE fan of Christian Historical Fiction and so I was very excited when Miranda sent me a review copy!!! I love love love these characters!!!! I really felt for Abi through her journey. For me it held touches of Beatrix Potter's story, but with many unique circumstances and differences! The flow of the story is nice, leading you through sweet moments, trials, and pain right along with Abi! I also truly love how her Faith grows through all she must overcome and I LOVE the ending of this story, though it made me long for more and I definitely would enjoy returning to Abi's story and seeing where else she is led and what other Castles in the Sky she visits! ;) Overall I really enjoyed this entertaining read!!!!
