Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
A Worthy Pursuit
by Karen Witemeyer
I’ve never read a novel by Karen Witemeyer I didn’t like. In fact, I’m not sure Karen is capable of writing a bad story. A Worthy Pursuit is one of the first novels I ever read by Karen, and to this day I remember it as if I read it yesterday.
I absolutely love the play on Dime Novels that takes place in this story. So clever! This book is also filled with excellent adventure, there are no breaks…just action, action, action. I found the characters to be well crafted and highly endearing, especially the children. And, when it came to the end, I was very sad — I wanted to keep reading! This is definitely a book I highly recommend.
About the Book
Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.
Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan’s Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily’s mother she’d keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.
When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily’s legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he’s been led to believe. Is she a villain or a victim? Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he’s ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte’s heart.
