My rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
About the Book:
In 1933, most people are focused on the Great Depression but all Piper Danson can think about is how to get out of being a debutante and marrying Braxton Crandall. In an act of defiance, Piper volunteers as a frontier nursing courier in the Appalachian Mountains where adventure awaits.
I really enjoyed this story, set during the 1930’s in the Appalachian mountains. Piper was a likeable character right away, as was Jamie. I loved their relationship throughout, even in the ups and downs that it took to get them to the end. Very sweet.
Piper undertakes quite an adventure as she forgoes her debutante season for a summer spent in the Appalachian Mountains, volunteering with the Frontier Nurse Service as a courier.
I loved being able to follow along this adventure, and experience this world alongside her. The story kept an even pace, and gave wonderful glimpses into the mountain life.
I also really like how Piper’s aunt Truda had a bit of her own story – that was really sweet, and added a great touch to this novel.
An Appalachian Summer was a truly sweet and delightful novel that I would definitely recommend!
