"Trouble follows Lucy wherever she goes."
Wow, what an accurate statement that is! While this was a slower read for me, I still enjoyed the main plot of the book.
Lucy Fairbanks is a hard one to tame, and that is if you can even get her to close her mouth and stop talking for longer than 10 seconds. While I enjoyed following some of her mischievous behavior, I more enjoyed reading about her growing relationship with the town "wild man", David Wolf, and her loving actions toward her brother, Caleb.
From the moment Lucy meets David, after a runaway stage coach and robbery mishap, Lucy seems intent on capturing his picture and sharing his story with the townspeople. If she happens to land a newspaper job while working on the story, so much more the better!
Caleb's lifelong dream to become a doctor will never happen without his sisters help. His dad is so set against the town doctor, that he refuses to hear Caleb's plea to leave the family business. Lucy knows her brother has an amazing gift given to him by God, and will do everything in her power to see that he becomes a doctor.
While I was highly anticipating the arrival of this book, it did leave me a tad disappointed. Never the less, I give this book 3.5 stars.
