The Kissing Tree/Prudence Bice
"Five years ago, Georgiana stole a kiss from Ridge Carson under the community "kissing tree" the day before she moved away. Now eighteen, she finally returns to Colorado to live with her Grandfather again and help him with the cooking and cleaning on his ranch. Though she was taught how to be a proper young lady and flourish in New York's high society, her heart never stopped yearning for home-or her childhood crush.
But when she unexpectedly finds herself facing the grown-up Ridge, with his wild west ways, all her proper training begins to unravel. Now she isn't sure she can fall for his improper cowboy style."
When reading this book, it took me back to the movie "Anne of Green Gables". Now I am sure that a lot of you woman out there know what I am talking about! Being as that movie is one of my favorites, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It has mischief, friendship, love, mystery and heartache. All the qualities you need for a great read. Ridge and Georgiana take you on a journey from when they were children in Colorado, to 5 years apart living in two separate worlds. I don't know if any of you have ever lost contact with a friend or someone who you were close too, but when you see them again, all the memories are still there and you have more memories to add and build on for the future. For me love and friendship are forever, and this book only confirms it.
I highly recommend this beautifully written novel. Prudence Bice also has another book out called "The Widower's Wife". Which I read during the summer. I cant wait to see what other novels she has in store!
