The Glass Road by Alyssa Schwarz: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

The road ahead is full of bends and turns...

Austin Wright had bigger dreams than to inherit his grandfather’s old property, but with the help of his nephew and a few volunteers, he decides to reopen the idyllic summer camp of his youth.

Following her accident at the first triathlon of the season, Tess Prescott’s dreams of the Olympics are shattered, and when her brother volunteers her to work at his friend’s summer camp, she is anything but pleased. Determined to make the best of a bad situation, and to keep herself busy while she recovers, she reluctantly agrees, and ultimately learns the joy of being part of a team.

In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, two people must learn to work together if they have any chance of making it through this season of change—even if it means sacrificing the dreams they once strove so hard to protect.

But one unexpected secret could have the power to unravel it all.

The Glass Road is the second book in A Prescott Family Romance series. While the couple from the first book in the series does make an appearance, this can definitely be read as a standalone just fine. 

Some of my best summer memories took place at camp, so there is always something about a story centered around camp that appeals to me so that definitely drew me into this story right away. From page one, the author did a great job of creating these characters that I found myself wanting to root for, and a setting that I found myself wanting to visit. 

The romance between Austin and Tess was sweet but seemed to play a lesser role in the story than I generally expect in a romance. That said, it really did work for this story. Instead, we got to watch these characters grow and see a beautiful message of faith and God's planning for us. I really enjoyed this aspect of the story. 

Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable read and one that fans of inspirational romance will certainly want to check out.
