Review: A Vision of Lucy
Lucy is a photographer in a day when women aren't professionals and don't even have a vote. Lucy wants her part time hobby to turn into full time employment with the local paper. When the editor gives her a nearly impossible assignment, Lucy goes after it with gusto but instead of completing her task, she falls into the middle of a stagecoach robbery!! A "wild man" named David Wolf steps from the shadows to save her and the real adventure begins. David and Lucy's lives and different pasts intermingle and collide again and again. The secret of what happened to David when he was 10 and what has brought him back to Rocky Creek almost tear he and Lucy apart.
Margaret Brownley has a rich style of writing with deep insight into her characters. Some of them deserve a good punch in the nose and some you'd love to have as a friend. She develops each of them carefully and winds all of their stories together (as often happens in small towns). I enjoyed the read and all the mystery to the very end. This book is the last in a series of three, the first two are A Lady Like Sarah and A Suitor for Jenny. Since I started with number three, I need to go back and read the first two!
