A Vision of Lucy: Margaret Brownley

Trouble follows Lucy wherever she goes. So does a vision of second chances . . . and love.

Lucy Fairbanks dreams of working as a photographer at the Rocky Creek newspaper. Her deepest hope is that her father will see her as an artist, the way he thought of her deceased mother, whose paintings still hang on their walls.

But disaster follows Lucy on every photo assignment: a mess of petticoats and ribbons, an accidental shooting, even a fire.

When Lucy meets David Wolf-a rugged, reclusive man who lives on the outskirts of town-she thinks she can catch the attention of the town with his photograph. She doesn't count on her feelings stirring whenever she's near him.

Two things happen next that forever change the course of Lucy's life. But will these events draw her closer to God or push her further away? And how will David accept this new vision of Lucy?

I had this book lying on my nightstand, looking forward to reading it as soon as I finished my own book. Since I've been a Margaret Brownley fan since the beginning of time, it was torture waiting. But Ms. Brownley never disappoints, and the story was as fun and captivating as I've come to expect.

A Vision of Lucy starts off with a bang and never lets up. I especially like a character with a secret, and David fulfilled that theme for me. Rocky Creek took on a personality of its own and became a character in its own right. Forgiveness is always a theme that draws emotion, and I especially appreciated that aspect of the plot.

 I'll be looking for a story about Lucy's brother Caleb in the future!
