  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2022 May #1
    After losing her parents and her reputation, Norah King would do anything to save her land, even if it meant a loveless marriage promising financial relief. After she finds handsome Quincy Barnes, a tormented, bankrupt, and now nearly dead prize fighter, on her property, they bond during his days of recovery. But Norah's dream of keeping her land prevents their mutual spark from becoming something more. Two years later, Quincy's success as a businessman is owed to a secret he kept from Norah. He is determined to make amends, but when he returns, it is Norah who needs rescuing and the freedom that can only be found in truth. Returning to the Iowa heartland in this 1882 inspirational romance about second chances and self-worth, Fordham again sparkles as an adept storyteller, from a thrilling hook on to the ache of deferred desire, years of regret, and, finally, the experience of redemption grounded in honesty and acceptance. Where the Road Bends celebrates the victory of facing one's imperfections with grace and extending that empathy to others as a meaningful legacy. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
