Katherine Osborne inherited the Osborne Citrus Groves near Buena Vista, Florida from her husband two years ago, and is now struggling to keep the business from bankruptcy. Her father visits and offers to loan her money on the condition that she returns to the upscale family camp in New York for the summer of 1905. She is reluctant to agree, knowing her mother will try and manipulate her into another marriage - this time, to someone acceptable. Someone like Randy, the son of her mother's childhood friend. Katherine is no longer mourning Charles's death, but his infidelity has left her wary of marriage, especially a marriage arranged by her domineering mother. At one point, Katherine's father says, "Doesn't she understand I work from dawn to dusk so she won't have to?". This line seemed to epitomise the so-called 'American Dream', yet this directly contradicts the biblical injunction that if a man does not work, he does not eat. It got me thinking about trust fund children both in 1905 when this story is set, and now, and wondering if perhaps this attitude is pursing the wrong dream. Surely our spiritual wellbeing is so much more important than the physical... I always enjoy a book that can both keep me entertained, yet also make me think, so well done to A Path Towards Love. It reminds me of novels like Making Waves and She Walks In Beauty, but I think it's better than both of them. A historical romance that is well worth reading.
