Nothing Short of Wondrous (American Wonders Collection #2) by Regina Scott

Nothing Short of Wondrous (American Wonders #2)Nothing Short of Wondrous by Regina Scott


It is 1886, and the government has given the US Cavalry control of Yellowstone. For widowed hotelier Kate Tremaine, the change is a welcome one. She knows every inch of her wilderness home like the back of her hand and wants to see it protected from poachers and vandals.

Refused a guide by Congress, Lieutenant William Prescott must enlist Kate's aid to help him navigate the sprawling park and track down the troublemakers. But a secret from his past makes him wary of the tender feelings the capable and comely widow raises in him. When her 6-year-old son is kidnapped by a poacher who wants the boy to guide him to the place where the last of the Yellowstone bison congregate, Will and Kate must work together to rescue him, save the bison, and protect the park. In doing so, they may just find that two wounded hearts can share one powerful love when God is in control.


Have you ever been to Yellowstone National Park? How about Yellowstone in 1886? Author Regina Scott gives readers a view of the way this national park may have been 134 years ago and the title says it all. Even then, Yellowstone National Park was Nothing Short of Wondrous but it was in danger of being destroyed. I felt like I was there as Kate Tremaine witnessed her beloved home being threatened by poachers and vandals and I could feel her relief when the United States Calvary was sent in to protect it. One of the soldiers proves especially helpful and when her young son Danny is kidnapped by a poacher, it is Lieutenant William Prescott who does all he can to reunite this mother and son. As they feverishly work to find Danny, Kate finds herself drawn to this man who is so different than her late husband!

Toby had been one to take chances, never considering the consequences. Will tended to think things through, look for possible problems, and resolve them before they grew. He appeared to be a man one could count on. The urge to do so was surprisingly strong.

I enjoyed seeing Kate and Will's relationship develop and sweet little Danny added a wonderful addition to the mix. Will wasn't just attracted to Kate, he was also drawn to this little boy who needed a male figure in his life. They, and other memorable characters, along with the vivid descriptions of the beautiful forests, geysers, and endangered bison, make this a book that kept me reading to learn more!

Nothing Short of Wondrous is rich in historical detail and its romance is sweet but intense. I certainly recommend this book to all who enjoy Christian historical romance.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. A favorable review was never required and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
