Threads of Love by Judith McCoy Miller is a historical, romance novel. Delphina Elizabeth Hughes lost her mother six months ago and now her father is sending her away. Her father has wanderlust and wishes to go explore (which means he wants to look for gold). He placed a newspaper advertisement (unbeknownst to Delphina) to find a position or home for her. Jonathan Wilshire has answered the ad. Jonathan believes Delphina is the answer to his prayers. Jonathan recently lost his brother and sister-in-law, and he was left with five children (Tessie, Josh, Joey, Nathan, and Nettie) and Sarah’s mother, Granny in his care. Delphina does not wish to leave her home or Cherryvale, but she is not given a choice (aren’t you glad that the world has changed). Delphina is off to Kansas to live with the Wilshire family. Delphina is sure God has a plan for her. Delphina settles into life in Council Grove, Kansas with the Wilshire’s. Just when she finds happiness, her father contacts her. He is dying and wants her to come to him. Delphina has choices to make. Will she make the right ones?
Threads of Love is well-written and an interesting story. However, it is predictable (you know how it will end). There is some humor in the book which I enjoyed. I liked the Christian values portrayed in the novel (it is a shame that more people do not have the same faith and values). The book also contains bonus content entitled Woven Threads. I give Threads of Love 4 out of 5 stars. I look forward to reading the next book by Judith McCoy Miller.
You can follow Judith Miller on Facebook. I received a complimentary copy of Threads of Love from NetGalley (and the publisher) in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you for checking out my latest review. I am currently reading A Clue in the Stew by Connie Archer (it is very good). I hope you have a grand evening. Take care and Happy Reading!
