Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund, © 2016
Beacons of Hope Series, Book Four

May, 1876 ~ New York City
Victoria Cole has managed to attract a lot of attention. The day of her third attempt at marriage has arrived. Unforeseen, the driver of the carriage to the wedding grounds has been switched and has taken off with her. The driver's plans are foiled, as Victoria hits him in the back with her flying shoe, distracting him right at the bend of the road. The horse takes the occasion to continue forward right to the beach and the carriage wheels are slowed in the sand.

Days before the wedding, her father, Henry Cole, of Cole Enterprises, has hired Tom Cushman as her bodyguard. He has his hands full from the beginning. With all of the commotion, and a threatening note left at the house, Henry and Tom devise a plan to keep Victoria safe. A Cape Cod lighthouse becomes the destination much to her peril, without a cook or maid to assist her.

What can possibly happen in 30 days? Anything to change the course of Victoria's view of life and alleviate her fears? Learning to cook, sew, and wash and hang clothes become the entry. And, love and acceptance from those around her leaving her room to grow. She finds strengths she never knew she possessed, and unexpected weaknesses that encompass her with joy. Hidden away, she discovers her true self.

Tom must come to terms with his past to continue with his today. Guilt taken on beyond what he could have controlled has kept him prisoner. Freedom is ahead for Tom if he will receive the open door to all that is before him.

Immediately after the last page, I returned to the beginning and began reading ~ until I noticed I was at page 105! So fun to be absorbed in the story again, with the descriptive writing pulling you in to exactly where they are: new beginnings.

Jody Hedlund has written a strong story of forgiveness, acceptance, and the will to go forward. Her characters find in their journey ~*hope*~ attainable with trust and perseverance; a Love that is forever safe.

... Let me live forever in your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of your wings! ...
Psalm 61:4 NLT

Loving lighthouses and historical fiction like I do made this a great book to read. I have enjoyed reading each book in this series and this one was just as great. It is a stand alone book, but if you haven't read the others, you will want to go back to enjoy them as well.
Victoria feels like she has the perfect life and is ready to marry her fiance. Her life is in danger though and her father hires Tom Cushman to protect her. He winds up hiding her at the Cape Cod Race Point Lighthouse to keep her safe and to isolate her from those who want to bring her harm. This is a struggle for Victoria as she is away from all that is familiar.
I loved seeing the relationship develop between Victoria and Tom and how they were able to work things out even though it wasn't comfortable for either one of them.
I received a copy of the book from the author to read and review. ( )
