About the book:

This romantic new book from bestselling author Lori Copeland portrays God’s miraculous provision even when none seems possible.

1893—A man who goes only by the name of “Jones” isn’t looking for trouble when he happens across Miss Trinity Franklin at the riverside. He is simply on his way to North Dakota to seek the advice of Tom Curtis, a former CN&W Railroad land purchaser. But when Jones spots a lady who is about to become the victim of a marauding band of thugs, he quickly follows his instincts. A handy barrel and a nearby river seem the perfect getaway solution…how was he to know she couldn’t swim?

Thus begins an adventure beyond what either could have anticipated. After Jones again rescues Trinity—this time from the river—they find their destination is the same: a small town in North Dakota. A seemingly coincidental beginning comes to a delightful and charming ending when orchestrated by the One who can put the pieces of any lost and broken life together.

My thoughts:

After reading Love Blooms In Winter (the first book in Lori Copeland's Dakota Diaries) last year, I was really looking forward to reading Under the Summer Sky and it was a good read (though I did like book one a tad bit more).

I really liked the characters and loved that the main ones from Love Blooms In Winter (Mae and Tom) were also in this book. Lil was probably my favorite character from Under the Summer Sky - she was just so comical and different!

There were some crazy scenes in Under the Summer Sky (especially the one with the plague of grasshoppers!). I liked the whole aspect of searching for the missing deed and thought it added a little bit of mystery to the story.

Under the Summer Sky was a quick read and, while there were a couple times the writing was a little hard for me to follow, I still really liked it - just wish the ending would have been a little different as it left me wondering about a few things.

Still, it was a great historical read and I recommend it if you enjoy these types of books.
