A Wild and Heavenly Place | Robin Oliveira
7 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
From the New York Times bestselling author of My Name is Mary Sutter comes a sweeping story of star-crossed lovers and the birth of Seattle. A story of love, despair, jealousy, revenge, and hopeBeautiful.Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author How far would you go? How much would you risk? Hailey MacIntyre seems conjured from the depths of Samuel Fiddess loneliness. Caring for his young sister in the tenements of Glasgow, Scotland, Samuel has known only hunger, while Hailey has never known want. Yet, when Samuel saves Haileys brother from a runaway carriage, their connection is undeniable. Through secret meetings and stolen moments, their improbable love grows. But then the City of Glasgow Bank fails, and Haileys bankrupt father impulsively moves their family across the globe to Seattle, a city rumored to have coal in its hills and easy money for anyone willing to work for it. Samuel is haunted by Haileys parting words: Remember, Washington Territory. Armed only with his wits, he determines to follow her, leaving behind everything he has ever known in search of Hailey and the chance of a better life for his sister. But the fledgling town barely cut out of the wilderness holds its own secrets and will test them all in ways unimaginable. Poignant and lyrical, A Wild and Heavenly Place is an ode to the Pacific Northwest, to those courageous enough to chase the American Dream, and to a love so powerful it endures beyond distance, beyond hope.

This veered occasionally to soap opera “territory” but would always pull itself back. I liked the author‘s use of history, family research, and her imagination to craft an interesting and enjoyable story. This was a Seattle without Starbucks!

1. 1992
2. Tagged! Glasgow, Scotland, to Washington Territory (now Washington State) would be an endeavor even today. In the 1870s it took several segments and several weeks.

From Scotland to the state of Washington in the 1800s.

The McIntyres fled Scotland and their life of luxury to a life of poverty, struggles, grief, and heartbreak.

Heartache and history in this beautifully written book with great descriptions of the lives of the characters and the setting.

Lots of sweet characters, but of course there has to be one villain. 5/5

From Scotland to the state of Washington in the 1800s.

There was a lot of heartache and history in this beautifully written book with descriptions that took you right into the lives of the characters and the setting.

Lots of sweet characters, but of course there has to be one villain. 5/5
