The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn Review

Frontier dangers cannot hold a candle to the risks one woman takes by falling in love
In an act of brave defiance, Tamsen Littlejohn escapes the life her harsh stepfather has forced upon her. Forsaking security and an arranged marriage, she enlists frontiersman Jesse Bird to guide her to the Watauga settlement in western North Carolina. But shedding her old life doesn’t come without cost. As the two cross a vast mountain wilderness, Tamsen faces hardships that test the limits of her faith and endurance.  
Convinced that Tamsen has been kidnapped, wealthy suitor Ambrose Kincaid follows after her, in company with her equally determined stepfather. With trouble in pursuit, Tamsen and Jesse find themselves thrust into the conflict of a divided community of Overmountain settlers. The State of Franklin has been declared, but many remain loyal to North Carolina. With one life left behind and chaos on the horizon, Tamsen struggles to adapt to a life for which she was never prepared. But could this challenging frontier life be what her soul has longed for, what God has been leading her toward? As pursuit draws ever nearer, will her faith see her through the greatest danger of all—loving a man who has risked everything for her?

The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton is her second book and, like the first, does not disappoint. Everything about this book was perfect. The historical content was amazing and I felt like I was transported right to late eighteenth century North CarolinaThe book was one big thing after another and I had a really hard time putting it down. It's one of those books where you say 'one more chapter' and then before you know it your at the end of the book and it's one in the morning. 

5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack worth pursuing.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
