Trouble may follow Lucy wherever she goes, but with the help of God and the rugged, reclusive David Wolf, she’ll never face adversity alone.
Lucy Fairbanks dreams of working as a photographer at the Rocky Creek newspaper. If she can earn money making photographs, then maybe her father will see that what she does is worthy, more than just a distraction. And her deepest hope is that he’ll see her as an artist, the way he thought of her deceased mother, a painter. But trouble follows Lucy on every photo shoot: a mess of petticoats and ribbons, an accidental shooting, even a fire.
When Lucy meets David Wolf, a quiet, rustic man who lives on the outskirts of town, she thinks she can catch the attention of the town with his photograph. She doesn’t count on her feelings stirring whenever she’s near him.
Two things happen next that forever change the course of her life: Lucy meets someone who sees her as no one else has—as the compassionate, creative young woman that God made in His image. And Lucy helps David uncover a secret that forces him to change his perspective on an event that left him deeply-scarred.
God’s arms are around this unlikely couple as they discover the truth about long-held assumptions and the importance of forgiveness.
When the book began, I thought that I was in for a fun, lighthearted read. However, the themes running through the book were of a deeper nature. I wanted to enjoy this book was constantly bothered by how the author really should go deeper into the characters and the issues they were dealing with.
Reading this book was like skimming the surface and never getting a true glimpse of the real story. Conflicts between characters were resolved so easily and effortlessly. Years of bitterness disappeared over the course of days. It seemed so superficial. There was no satisfaction coming to the end of this story.
A Vision of Lucy is the third and final book in the Rocky Creek Romance series by Margaret Brownley.
