The Road to Paradise by Karen Barnett

This is a delightful summer read that takes place in Mount Rainer National Park in 1927. Margaret Lane, daughter of a prominent senator and amateur naturalist, uses her father's influence to obtain a position at the park. Chief Ranger Ford Brayden is not enthralled with the idea of a female ranger, but Margaret's enthusiasm for the park and its natural beauty wins him over.

Margaret or Margie as she is known to her friends is also escaping a controlling ex-fianc√© whose desire to control her and her father leads to the possible commercialization of the park. Ford is still struggling with the climbing death of his father two years prior. Ford struggles with trusting God and Margie struggles with her growing attraction to Ford and his not sharing her faith in God.  The plot thickens as Margie and Ford try to work through their differences when it comes to faith as well as try to thwart the plans to destroy  the beauty of the park.

This is an entertaining read for those who especially enjoy nature and the great beauty of our national parks. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this honest review.
