I have a new book recommendation for you if you like historical fiction and romance. This book is called Love Under the Stars by Kathleen shoop. This is the first book I have read by her and after this, I will be looking up some of her other books to read! This book was not only good but interesting and based on true people which was also cool to me.
Love Under The Stars is inspired by the true story of John & Phoebe Brashear. If you never heard of John well, he developed telescopes and lenses that people still use today. The story is set in the early 1860s in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. John is a young man who is fascinated by physics and astrology but also helps with sermons at his local church. He also helps teach Sunday school which is where he meets Phoebe who he instantly falls in love with.
Phoebe lives with her strict, unconventional family. She is responsible and a hard worker taking care of her parents and siblings. She cooks, cleans, cares for the younger children, and helps out at church Sunday school as well. She has grown up knowing she is to stay single and help with the fourteen people living in the household. When she meets John she begins to start seeing life differently which is hard on her because she must choose her family or her heart. Can she figure out a way to love John and start a life with him as well as fulfill her duties to her family without hurting anyone?
This book takes you back in history and makes you see how different life was. We think it was simple back then but I feel it's just as hard just different. I absolutely loved this book! It kept me intrigued until the very end! I definitely recommend this book and I can't wait to read more of Kathleen's books. Get your copy today!
I adore writing historical fiction (The Letter series, After the Fog and Donora Stories that are coming soon!) but am having a blast writing romance like Home Again, Return to Love and Tending Her Heart (Endless Love series). Thank you so much for the time you take to read.
