Award-winning author Miller doesn't fail to bring together a story of history, consequences, love and loss in the first of the Postcards from Pullman series. Readers will identify with Olivia's shortcomings and her attempts to untangle herself from poor decisions. Although the pace drifts at times, the author's ability to create surprising twists will hold readers' avid attention. This story also has a satisfying ending that will leave you wanting more.

Olivia Mott works in the Spencer household and is given an
ultimatum when she refuses to submit
to Chef Mallard's advances. Her rescue comes in the form of Lady Charlotte Spencer, who is unwed and pregnant. Lady Charlotte's wealth allows them to travel from London to America in search of the baby's father. As they settle in Pullman, Ill., the immaculately landscaped community quickly reveals that all is not as it appears. With pressure
to find a job, Olivia and Lady Charlotte compose a series of lies and in the process Olivia attracts the attention of
two men. However, balancing Lady Charlotte, two men, a job and the growing mountain of deceit is more than Olivia can handle. Will the consequences lead Olivia to lose everything, or does God have another plan? (Bethany House, Apr., 384 pp., $13.99)
