As Norah King surveys her family land in Iowa in 1880, she is acutely aware that it is all she has left, and she will do everything in her power to save it--even if that means marrying a man she hardly knows. Days before her wedding, Norah discovers an injured man on her property. Her sense of duty compels her to take him in and nurse him back to health. Little does she realize just how much this act of kindness will complicate her life and threaten the future she's planned.Norah's care does more than aid Quincy Barnes's recovery--it awakens his heart to possibilities. Penniless and homeless, he knows the most honorable thing he can do is head on down the road and leave Norah to marry her intended. But walking away from the first person to believe in him proves much harder than he imagined.Rachel Fordham invites you to experience the strength and beauty of love forged in the crucible of hardship in this heartwarming story.… (més)

I received a copy of the book for an honest review. Overall, it was a nice story but it did seem a bit choppy and didn't flow as well as I thought it would while reading it. I would have liked to see more of a development of Norah's character and what happened in the 2 year period. ( )

When I first started reading this book I was sure I had read it before. I'm not sure why I felt this way, but either this is a re-write or really similar to another book.
I enjoyed the story and it was well written. It is a Christian book that is not preachy but does show the importance of honesty.
The characters were well developed and the editing was fine.
I was given a copy of this book through NetGalley and this review is totally my own opinion. ( )

Norah King is out of options when it comes to saving her farm after the death of her father, so she agrees to marry a neighboring farmer to save her land, but an injured stranger throws her future plans into turmoil.

My heart definitely went out to Nora, things just kept going from bad to worse for poor Nora as she is stuck in an impossible situation. I liked how she takes Quincy in, showing kindness and hospitality, doing the right thing even when it hurts. Nora's kindness to Quincy is a turning point in his life, and I liked that he changes his life as a result of meeting Nora.

There was a lot to like about this book, with strong themes of forgiveness, second chances, and the importance of honesty. There were things that I both liked and disliked about the time jump, and I could see why it was done. While there were noble themes, the story wasn't overtly Christian, which isn't a bad thing just might not be what some people are expecting going into it. Great for fans of clean historical romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. ( )

“The farmland went on forever, and it smelled like happiness.”

One thing I can count on when I read a Rachel Fordham book. I know I’m going to love it, and Where the Road Bends is no exception.

Fordham writes with a sweet, historical romance, prairie-style. I love Norah King and her innocent, one-chance-left-self. She is stronger than she knows, and has a truly compassionate heart for others. How I wish she had had someone she trusted besides Jake Granger and Quincy Barnes to advise her!

Quincy is quite the dashing hero. I loved his willingness to share his faith and his compassionate heart as it prompts him to act, as well. He shares much of himself with Norah, trying to encourage her.

“But I don’t have an author weaving words together, ensuring a happy ending.”~Norah
…“You do have an author,” he whispered. “He’s there, working for your good.” ~ Quincy

I think I identified most with the housekeeper, Mrs. Dover. She has seen enough of life to give some very sage advice to both Quincy and Norah.

I found the story wonderfully unpredictable. So many heart-wrenching moments, where I wanted to grab up a character and hug them, or yell at them to make a different choice. (It didn’t work.)

I received a copy of the book from Revell through LibraryThing Early Reviewers, plus I purchased my own ebook. No positive review was required, and all opinions are my own.

Highly recommended, especially for readers of Kim Vogel Sawyer. ( )

Where the Road Bends is a lovely historical romance that winds down the roads of forgiveness, redemption, and unconditional love. The characters are so unique in this story, especially the hero, Quincy. I loved his half ruffian/half gentleman charm, and the way he always sought to pay his good fortune forward to the less fortunate. I also appreciated the slow-burn romance between Norah and Quincy. They had the familiarity of old friends with the excitement of new affection. And I loved the family feel of Quincy’s hotel. Mrs. Dover and Nels were adorable and added to the charm of Quincy’s family.
And I was so happy to see Sam, from A Life Once Dreamed, again. He’s such a fine man, it was fun to learn more of his story and watch him open his heart after such heartache.
Overall, this story was soft and sweet with beautiful lessons on how to deal with life’s harder moments. Fans of historical romance will not want to miss this novel by Rachel Fordham. She writes excellent stories with characters you can cheer on in their journey.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions are my own. ( )
