Adult. Rating: 4
Kristi Ann Hunter returns with the conclusion to her inspirational historical series, set in 19th century English countryside.
In A Pursuit of Home, Jess Beauchene spent her life hiding and on the run in England, believing she is the sole survivor from her family after an uprising in her former country, Verbonne. When she unexpectedly learns that her family might be alive and in danger, Jess seeks help from an unexpected source, an art historian she doesn’t like.
Derek Thornbury is an expert in historical artifacts. Even though Jess doesn’t like him, she needs his help in deciphering a family journal with clues to an art treasure being sought by her family’s enemies. Will they be able to work together and solve the mystery before her family is harmed? Can they decipher the mystery from the past and find a future together?
Hunter pens another well-written historical novel filled with love and faith that her fans will enjoy reading. Intrigue, treasure hunting, mystery, and clean romance abound in the latest novel from Ms. Hunter. Themes of love, family, and sacrifice run throughout this story. Her characters are delightful, and well-developed in this series. The relationship between Jess and Derek, two unlikely candidates for romance, is a slow-growing, sweet one, appropriate for teen readers.
Readers of her earlier books “met” Jess and have been eagerly awaiting her story. A Pursuit of Home is much like Jess, full of spunk, heartache, loyalty, adventure, and plenty of plot twists. Characters from previous books in this series make an appearance, much to the delight of the reader.
