    Wow! A fabulous debut from Rachel Fordham! Both the cover and the description had me hooked when I first saw this on Netgalley, and I'm so glad I decided to read it! It was so lovely to step into this simply-written small-town historical story with heart-melting characters, a sweet romance, and even gun-toting outlaws.

It was so lovely to step into this simply-written small-town historical story with heart-melting characters, a sweet romance, and even gun-toting outlaws. Both Caleb and Em were unique and realistic MCs with so much depth to their characters. I loved their sweet relationship, easy banter, and lighthearted competition. I also loved the secondary cast of Mae and Milly, Margaret, and the Howells, with the exception of Eliza. Her character was a bit . . . odd. I see why she was necessary to show how Em was different, but I feel like Eliza ended up being unrealistic. There are more effective ways to show the contrast, in my opinion. The story, while a bit slow at times, was heartwarming and enthralling. I loved the contrast of inner beauty vs. outer beauty the author made. I feel like so many romances put such weight on the physical and often forget inner beauty entirely. Fordham did a fabulous job with that subject. The romance was slow and sweet and pure, just the way I like it. A couple of my quibbles: Eliza, as mentioned above. As well, the writing style seemed a little oversimplified at times, which is probably just my personal preference. Also, some of the dialogue and description seemed historically innaccurate\inauthentic. I'm always a stickler for historical accuracy, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book too much. All in all, I greatly enjoyed The Hope of Azure Springs and look forward to reading more from this talented author! Recommended for ages 14+ for mild romance.

This book had its really sad moments, y’all, but that happy epilogue is what got to me. For a debut author, I thought “The Hope of Azure Springs” was good. I think the dialogue could have been improved, but it was still a good read. This “romance” story is as far from insta-love as you can get, and I love it. Talk about refreshing. Em is regarded as plain (which I do have to say that I believe no one is plain) and Caleb (who could be a bit dense at times, albeit) was more like a friend at first for the most part. The Spiritual Content was light, but so was the romance content. Their very light romance was based on their characters and attitude and it was so refreshing. Y’all know orphan care is so near to my heart, so it’s probably why I enjoyed this story so much. I will be watching for news about the author’s next book.

The town of Azure Springs will welcome you in with memorable character's . I was also disappointed to not see more of a romance here. Another disappointment was the main character didn't have much self confidence constantly calling herself plain and ugly. She was strong in other ways though to have such resilience to went she went through. Pub Date 03 Jul 2018 I received a complimentary copy from Revell through NetGalley.

The Hope of Azure Springs is Rachel Fordham’s debut novel and she does a superb job of piecing together this inspiring story. It was exactly the book I needed and I loved sinking into it. Comforting, uplifting, joyful and heartwarming, The Hope of Azure Springs was a delight to read. Seven years ago Em traveled west on an orphan train. After seven years of barely surviving, Em’s only goal is to find her sister. But when her guardian is murdered and Em is injured, she is taken to the town of Azure Springs. There, for the first time in so many years, she is fed, cared for and loved. Taken in by a kind family and protected by the town’s sherif, Caleb Reynolds, Em learns to dream again. But her heart remains focused on reuniting with her sister. What a stunning and delightful story. At first a little bumpy in places, the tone and flow of the story soon became clear and I was loath to tear myself away from the heartwarming characters and their story of strength, resilience and love. The Hope of Azure Spring feels a little like one of the fairytales so often mentioned within its pages. This book carries a little magic with it and has a style all its own. Em is a wonderful character. Despite everything that she has ensured and the loss she has faced she is kind and brings a little sunshine to every situation. She isn’t infallible by any means - she struggles with self-esteem and what others think of her and her appearance - but her generosity of spirit endears her to all. At first, Caleb seems a very incompetent sheriff, bumbling through his first interview with Em. With initial judgements and a harsh tone, he hardly seemed an ideal hero. At one moment gentle and understanding and the next harsh and brash, he is easily distracted by outward beauty and initially discards Em as plain and poorly. Yet, through Em, Caleb undergoes such a wonderful growth in character. Through Em’s strength, kindness and joy, he learns to look beyond outward appearances and to return to the joy and dreams of his youth. The time Caleb and Em spend together as they build their friendship is very sweet. They compete, laugh and work together, building a depth of relationship and connection that was wonderful to read. I adored the pacing in this novel. Everything has its time, is given its due. There is a little action and tension as they chase and capture the bad guys, but the remainder of the story flows like a gentle stream. Characters are given time to develop, unfold and grow. Relationships and feelings slowly bloom. Time is given to reflection, self-discovery, and to making independent choices. You can tell the author poured her heart and soul into this book and it comes through every word. Utterly charming and so very romantic, The Hope of Azure Springs was a delight to read. I certainly hope that this debut will not be Rachel Fordham’s only offering, and I look forward to reading anything she next writes.

    The Hope of Azure Springs is a sweet debut. The main story is about Em finding her sister Lucy. They were both children that road an Orphan Train from New York City to Iowa. Em and Lucy found families in two different towns and have been separated for seven years. Em was taken in by a single man that paid little attention to her. A tragedy brings Em to Azure Springs. The story that unfolds shows character growth of Em and several other characters. The ending is incredibly satisfying. Readers tha The Hope of Azure Springs is a sweet debut.

    A delightful debut novel. Rachel Fordham draws a sympathetic character in Em, who grows – and also causes growth in those who come to know her. Caleb is a wonderful hero, strong but flawed, and the romance between Caleb and Em is unique and intriguing. What sets this novel apart is the refreshing message – what is true beauty and how do we perceive it? I highly recommend this novel and look forward to more from this author!

While I did enjoy this book, I did struggle with being drawn in by the main characters. Some of it was that a lot of dialogue was contrived and didn't fully show the potential of Em and Caleb. Their characters did develop throughout the story, but not as much as I hoped. The ending was a happy one, and yet, I felt there was something lacking to how everything came together. Some details, such as Alroy, seemed to be quickly passed by once it was over. The romance was sweet. There was a little hint of a love triangle, but thankfully it didn't last long. I liked that the romance wasn't focused on the physical, but on each other's true characters. The spiritual content wasn't heavy...some prayers, mentions of God's goodness in their lives, but not any direct comments about Salvation. This story will certainly interest western readers, and I'm looking forward to looking out for this author again in the future! *I received this to read in exchange for an honest review.

It has its share of sad, depressing moments but OH the hope woven through that spreads like rays of sunshine. If ANYTHING had been changed in this book it wouldn’t have been the meaty book it is. This book is a cold glass of water in the CF historical romance genre. One that will quench a soul deep thirst! Em is not what we normally see in Christian fiction. She isn't drop dead gorgeous (though she does almost drop dead 🙊) nor is she curvy or perfect. She's plain and as thin as a twig. Caleb IS what we see in CF. A tall, dark and handsome cowboy sheriff. Do you see the conundrum?! Pretty unlikely pair. The only reason they spent any time together was the threat of bad guys, and all those things... Though they were shoved together in a very strained circumstance, they became fast friends. They became comfortable in each other's presence and then they started sharing the hurts (and joys) of their pasts. I'm ALL for quicker romances, but every once in awhile you need a breather from the unrealistic and you need a book that will take you for the LONG haul. This book will do that for you. It will hit you with some serious truths about outward beauty and how to TRULY LIVE and not just survive. There were some mighty fine inspirational thoughts in this book, definitely a story that is sweet but you'll want to chew on it for a few days. The character development and the change in, not only Caleb's, but the whole town's...and most importantly Em's perspective about beauty was, well...beautiful. There were some great secondary characters that made the book fun! *cough cough, Margaret* There were some witty moments, though not a book that is full of humor. Em had been sheltered her whole life so she was a bit naive, which wore on me a touch...but nothing AWFUL. Overall it was a sweet read, that was inspirational and so hopeful. It's not fluffy and it isn't perfect...but neither is life. I believe every woman, young or old, should read this book. I rated it a 4/5 star.

The beginning pages quickly pulled me in, and I was immediately drawn to the heroine, Em. There’s some suspense, but this is primarily a character-driven story, my favorite style to read. This is a heartwarming story of loss, love and resilience of spirit. I confess to expecting this to be a typical prairie romance, but was pleasantly surprised to find it much more complex. The story combines elements of the orphan train project, going back to Em’s experience seven years earlier, with life on the prairie. Em is a sympathetic character, realistically portrayed – resourceful and able to fend for herself; strong in one sense, yet vulnerable and caring. Caleb, easily drawn by the outward beauty of ladies, wasn’t my favorite character at first, but that soon changed. The best stories are about transformation, and I enjoyed seeing Caleb and Em steadily grow. I also loved how their romance grew from the solid foundation of friendship and mutual respect, rather than being filled with tension and misunderstandings. The Hope of Azure Springs is a feel-good story that delivers on the “hope” promised in the title. I look forward to more stories by Rachel Fordham. Recommended.

She is tiny and malnourished and is plain. She knows she will never marry. The hero, Caleb is the handsome sheriff, who has all of the ladies swooning. He finds Em to be different. She has an attitude of gratefulness. She is hard working, and cares for others more than for herself. She also likes to have fun and doesn't seem to care about lady like manners. This speaks volumes because of her childhood. Needless to say, her beauty is revealed through her sweet spirit and soul. This makes me think of the scripture in Proverbs that says that "Charm is deceptive and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be praised." This book made me think and ponder way into the night. Should I be worried about my outward appearance or my inward beauty. Which is going to last? I can tell you at my age, it's what's on the inside that matters and lasts. *I was given a copy of this book by Revell publishers via Netgalley and was under no obligation to leave a review.

A sweet story focusing on the journey of Em who left New York as a child of 12 along with her 6 year old sister, Lucy, on a orphan train.

Beautiful, adorable Lucy is quickly selected by a set of parents, but each time Em is bypassed due to her plain looks, freckled face, and forlorn demeanor. The characters in the small town of Azure Springs were so supportive and filled Em's life with hope. Her lack of confidence, her plain jane attitude, hid a deeply caring heart that made her beautiful. Sheriff Caleb Reynolds was a perfect hero to help Em find her inner beauty. I really like how he grew as he saw the difference between Eliza and Em. Em's unshakeable love and desire to find her sister was evident throughout the story. Each of the major characters as well as a few minor ones learned that the loss of loved ones wasn't easy but locking away the memory of them only made them hurt more. Rachel Fordham captured the meaning of enduring love, hope, self-reliance, friendship, and the value of self-worth throughout this story. Excellent novel from a first time author. **I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell through NetGalley. Opinions are mine alone. I was not compensated for this review.

    I was lucky enough to get an advance copy (ARC) of this novel. As someone who grew up watching Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman with my mom, I enjoyed reading about the Wild (Mid)West. I loved the rugged mountain man, Sully, and I loved the strong woman, Dr. Quinn.

As someone who grew up watching Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman with my mom, I enjoyed reading about the Wild (Mid)West. I loved the rugged mountain man, Sully, and I loved the strong woman, Dr. Quinn. This novel is set in a somewhat similar setting (the frontier days in America), where a train is the height of the transportation options and a dollar buys a lot more than a value burger. Caleb, the town Sheriff, doesn't have much direction to his love life until he meets Em, possibly because he has his pick of most any lady in town. In a day and age when "beauty" means air-brushed perfection, it's refreshing to find a heroine who is told her entire life she's plain... and she really is. She and Caleb both come to realize that beauty is about more than freckles and curves (or the lack thereof). It's about how you treat other people, and what brings you joy. "HAZ" is a romance, but it's also more than that. It's a story about a girl who had a good start in life, but things become hard for her through no fault of her own. In spite of that, she doesn't give up, and she doesn't become bitter or depressed. She grows where she's planted, and when she has the chance to improve, she takes it, humbly and gratefully. It's also a story about healing yourself by serving others. This book is clean enough for my kids to read, but it's also moving both romantically and emotionally. I strongly recommend it.

She was perfect for the book. -Em’s character, was so fabulous! I absolutely loved the whole orphan train thing that the author didn’t smooth over and make it sounds good when it wasn’t. She was spunky and plain, which I loved to see! It seems like all characters in books are drop dead gorgeous without a blemish which really irritates me. -Eliza!

This sounds really bad, but I loved Eliza’s character! -There was a little bit of a Love Triangle which I dislike but it got sorted out quickly and wasn’t complicated. 4.5/5 Stars. I’m so excited for the authors other books !! 👏🏻😄

Loss through death due to the war and sickness was common but with perseverance healing can be reached. The characters come through as true to life and Fordham has me wanting to visit Azure Springs. So many unexpected happenings had me turning the pages quickly. Hope for the future kept popping up, even though the main characters tried to squelch it. And we were reminded that beauty is not just outward. A good heart that cares about people has the most beauty. The orphan trains are often romanticized but due to Fordham’s thorough research, we see that things didn’t always go well. I won’t say more as I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s obvious the author has a heart for orphans, and this story often had me fighting tears. If you enjoy historical fiction, this book is a must read! I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

Poignant and filled with emotion, this story is one that is sure to linger with you long after you’ve put the story down. This story has multiple layers to enjoy. Moments of laughter, and moments that will have you holding your breath and wondering what will happen next. Have a few tissues ready also, because, like me, your emotions might just overflow. I recommend this fantastic story to one and all, especially if you enjoy mid-western prairie, early American, historical romance. I give this wonderful story 5 enthusiastic stars and encourage you to pick-up a copy to enjoy!

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I'm not much of a fan for historical fiction but this one was hard to put down.

Problem is...she's not sure how she's gonna do it. Then one day she's shot and the man who took her in is dead. Now her life's in danger and there's only one person to protect her. Caleb doesn't know a lot about where Em came from or why she was so reclusive. All he knows is someone wants her dead and he must protect her. But as he begins spending more time with Em, learning about her childhood grief, Caleb can't help but remember is own pain and maybe with time the two of them both can heal. Be prepared for tissues during the last few chapters. This book is appropriate for ages 18+ for mature content although no graphic violence, bad language, or sexual content.

    The Hope of Azure Springs is an inspirational historical tale set in a time when loss and death were frequent occurrences in families. In the midst of hardship, a hope shines bright in the form of a young woman whose inner beauty helps her and others to overcome the difficulties life has dealt them to find a strong faith, everlasting love, and family.

This is a story where beauty is revealed not by outer appearances but by the soul of a person. This book grabbed me from the beginning but then it go slow but I pushed through. I’m thankful I kept reading because just like the main character Em, who transformed from an injured dirty waif into a soulfully beautiful young woman, this book got better as the story evolved. Some of my favorite quotes: "Beauty is something we get to define. We may not see it right away, but when we do, we have trouble even remembering the other definition. We wonder how we were ever so misled. All we can see is the one person who defines it for us." "Don't let anyone else decide which kind of beautiful is right for you. You find a girl who brings out the best in you. Who you can see a happy future with. That's your kind of beautiful." I received a advance reader's copy from the Publisher but my review is my honest opinion.

    Rachel's book The Hope of Azure Springs is the kind of book you would want to have in your library. I can say that in the best of what I have to say here. Of all the westerns I have read, and they are many, she has come the closest (in my opinion) to being a new version of Louis L'Amour, who was one of a kind in his own time. For any who read my book reviews, you notice I read a lot of Western style books. Some of these lately have been a bit on the romance side of things.

For any who read my book reviews, you notice I read a lot of Western style books. Some of these lately have been a bit on the romance side of things. You know, where the good guy goes off to find out who did what, why they did that to this person, and "Now you're gonna get locked up for being lawless?" But in the end the good guy wins the girl. Even Louis L'Amour, from time to time, wrote books like that. The author of this book I'm reviewing for you has been writing for her children who wanted her stories, not simply stories she'd read to them, such as "The Big Bad Wolf," "Snow White," or even "Cat in the Hat." No, Rachel's children wanted to hear the stories she had within her to tell. I think that's what cued her in on "Well, maybe I should try writing a book." The Hope of Azure Springs is actually her second book she's written. I gleaned this from looking at her website, to be honest. It lists no other book, even before this one that is actually listed, but most writers (including myself) have stories they just haven't released yet. She's no exception. What I can say about this book Rachel has written is that it's well done. She hits the right notes, as far as I'm concerned. It's like she's a skilled artist who paints this rich and lush landscape, and then adds the little things that tell the story. I loved this book a great deal. It's such a wonderful read, whether you choose to savor it or go after it in one sitting, which can be done. I received this book complimentary from Revell in the hopes of an honest assessment of the books they publish.

Em is an unlikely hero. Sent west with her younger sister on the orphan train, they are taken by different people. Em is taken by a man who barely acknowledges her existence and who treats her exceedingly poorly. She vows someday to be reunited with her sister. Fate steps in in a cruel way, and Em, nearly twenty, finds herself being cared for by a loving family. But Em has unfinished business to complete and cannot stay with them. Author Rachel Fordham has done a masterful job of taking us back in time to 1881 and creating a cast of colorful characters placed in a well thought out plot. She brings in such issues as the welfare of the children on the orphan trains, prejudice against others for the way they look, man’s inhumanity, adapting to and accepting changes in life, helping others, and hoping in the face of despair. This well-written novel will entertain as well as enlighten its readers pearls of wisdom.

    Em, our main character, woke up in Azure Springs in 1881. She had been shot and had lost a lot of blood. Her hair was filthy and unkempt with years worth of dirt on her body. There was hardly any fat on her, she seemed childlike and close to death. The local Doctor determined that the bullet had missed her vital organs but she had lost a lot of blood and needed time, rest, and food to recuperate.

    Em was separated from her little sister Lucy during an orphan train adoption. It’s been seven long years and she finally escapes the skinflint who barely cared for her. She is accustomed to scratching out a living while this man is away frequently and she lives in his dilapidated falling down barn. There is a shootout and her guardian is killed, and Em is shot and plays dead until she’s rescued by the sheriff. The skin and bones feisty little waif is invited to convalesce in a kind family’s home Em was separated from her little sister Lucy during an orphan train adoption. It’s been seven long years and she finally escapes the skinflint who barely cared for her. She is accustomed to scratching out a living while this man is away frequently and she lives in his dilapidated falling down barn. There is a shootout and her guardian is killed, and Em is shot and plays dead until she’s rescued by the sheriff. The skin and bones feisty little waif is invited to convalesce in a kind family’s home. As she recovers, she begins to find her way in life. She has comfortable surroundings for the first time in seven years, as well as the time to mull over her purpose before searching for her missing baby sister. Her goal is to find her, but the road she travels to get there is fraught with danger and is not the path of least resistance. This story is mostly about hope. Hope of finding her little sister and hope for building a better life. Em had a good life until her parents died, so her life has run the gamut from good, horrible, and to recovery mode. The last seven years have worn on her and she has little hope in herself as a person. As she washes away the dirt and grime of her former life and puts on a bit of weight, it’s easy to see that she is a joy to be around. The journey to find her sister is not what one might expect but this journey is as much of a self-discovery as it is a search to find her sister. As a debut novel for this author, Rachel Fordham writes a story that is well written and flows very well. I was hooked after the first chapter and found it very hard to put down. Her words craft her story very beautifully and you can easily visualize the countryside, the danger, and the kind people who take Em in. This story was exceptional and I cannot wait to see what she writes next! This book is available for purchase on July 3rd. I received a complimentary advanced e-copy of the book from NetGalley. The review is completely my own and in no way swayed by the free e-copy of the book.

    I absolutely loved this book from the very first, you just get absorbed into the story and feel like you're right there with Em & Caleb following along. I shed several years while reading this book, it was amazing! This is a must read, I hold it right up there with the classics.

Em Cooper has been shot and left for dead. She was lucky to be found and transported to Azure Springs, Iowa where the Howell family has taken her into their home. Sheriff Caleb Reynolds is responsible for keeping the law in Azure Springs and the surrounding area. He wants to catch whomever harmed Em and her guardian George. Em was taken in by George seven years prior when the orphan train came through the area. She has been living in a dilapidated barn and scrounging for food since then. Three men came to the farm and proceeded to tear it apart looking for something. When they did not find it, they shot George and Em. She can provide Caleb with a description and it matches that of men who recently robbed a stagecoach. While Caleb works the case, he finds himself drawn to Em with her kind nature and generous heart. Em is eager for the bandits to be captured so she can begin her search for her sister, Lucy. They became separated when Lucy was adopted, and Em has worried about her ever since. Em is grateful her prayers were answered, and she was freed from George, but she has yet to realize that she is the answer to others prayers. The Hope of Azure Springs is well-written story with a gentle pace and a beautiful cover. I liked the main characters of Em and Caleb. The supporting characters of the Howell family and Margaret Anders (I like her attitude) helped enhance the story. Em has had a difficult life, but she does not let it get her down. She has a positive attitude and a grateful heart. Em has a different way of looking at things and she helps others with their grief. The romance was sweet, and it focused on the individual’s character (what is inside the person) instead of their physical appearance (though Caleb is handsome). I like the Christian elements present throughout the story. The presence of God in our lives, having faith in God, God’s grace and prayer. Other themes are hope, self-reliance but also knowing when to accept help from others, friendship, enduring love, and the value of self-worth. The road to a happy future is a bumpy one, and Em’s journey will be an emotional one. I like how the story goes full circle. My rating for The Hope of Azure Springs is 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). I hope the author gives Eliza and Margaret their own books. I would like to see their stories play out. Readers who enjoy clean western romance novels will be delighted with The Hope of Azure Springs.

    I’m never really a fan of a storyline constantly reminding us of the ‘plainness’ of a main character, it irritates me. Sometimes though I find it pointless to the plot.

Sometimes though I find it pointless to the plot. In this case, as much as I didn’t like it, I appreciated it was pivotal to much of the development that happens. If you’ve read any of the many recent novels being written about the Orphan Trains - of which there has been quite a few, then this story will already begin with you having a pretty good idea to what it was and what happened. I’ve read both of Jody Hedlund’s in her series, and it provides a very good basis of understanding for me. In fact the more I read on this subject the more compassion I am feeling for the obesity affected the most. The children. Imagine being lined up on a train platform and being looked over and then rejected. Imagine that happening repeatedly at every train station you stopped at. That alone would affect a child psychologically. Imagine then being separated from your siblings. Never knowing if you’ll see them again because all you know (and only if you were old enough) is which town they left you at. Imagine when you do finally get taken, it is to a home that is little more than a hovel and the neglect leaves you lonely, starving and so desperate you’ll do anything to survive. Throw all of that together and you’ve got the opening for Em. The heroine of this story. The author has written a book that has you questioning the validity of the Orphan Train Movement. Or at the very least the way in which it was administered. It was not only a journey of emotional and physical healing to travel along with Em, but the ability to see how despite all the grievances we could have for the life we have been handed - it is entirely possible to not repeat the past. To become so much more. To have an attitude of grace. Caleb is such a fun character, who takes his responsibilities as Sheriff seriously. He will protect his town if it’s the last thing he does, and throws everything he has got into solving this case involving Em. As he goes above and beyond what it expected, we see a side of him that only one person has the ability to alter. The process of tying up all the loose ends & questions you’ll likely be asking as you read is nicely done. Thanks to Revell & Netgalley for the eARC. This is my honest review.
