The first book in the Abbington Pickets series.
Jacob Hudson, a shy, handsome, talented young man, was born a farmer’s son near the small village of Abbington Pickets. Jacob has been keeping a terrible secret since he was eight years old. He is fearful of the one person he should be able to trust. Just when Jacob thinks he will never be able to follow his dream, he meets Abigail, a beautiful English girl with a chip on her shoulder. His heart falls wide open, but Abigail doesn’t give him the time of day. In order for Jacob to follow his dream, he has to make a difficult decision and live with the consequences. Follow Jacob’s compelling story of love, success, loss, and anguish, while his faith is tested over and over. Will Jacob ever forgive the one who has hurt him the most?
I was very intrigued by this book, which is the first in the series of Abbington Pickets. It kept me at the edge of my seat, as there was a deep, dark family secret revealed early on in the book. This made me all the more curious to see what would happen and how the story would transpire. I enjoyed each chapter and couldn’t read it fast enough. I also liked learning about the main character, Jacob, and the various events that he experienced and how he dealt with them, including romance, mystery, deceit and tragedy.
Corinne Hewitt has become one of my favorite authors. She puts her heart and soul into her writing. She is not only a gifted writer, but also a very creative story teller. I look forward to reading more books by this author
