The River Jewel: A Letter Series Novella - Kathleen Shoop

>>> New historical fiction from Kathleen Shoop <<<
ღ The River Jewel: A Letter Series Novella by Kathleen Shoop ღ
For everyone who hopes to find the perfect match…
1875 Des Moines, Iowa
The novella, The River Jewel, takes readers of the bestselling Letter Series novels back in time, before there was a last letter, before the Arthurs lost everything, before they knew a girl named Pearl.

"What a wonderful book-the story of two people who find each other in a most particular way. Although the title says this is a novella--it is actually longer and is about the same length as a regular story. It was so engrossing that I read it in one sitting!!" reviews Miki's Hope

"Lovely, romantic historical novel set in rural Des Moines. Shoop captures a wonderful sense of this Iowa community in the years before many were forced to move away, and I loved how she contrasted the life priorities of Des Moines against those of rich Manhattanites." @reviews Stephanie Jane @ Literary Flits

"Will Landon go against his parents wishes and have the life he wants with a young woman they disapprove of. Will he be able to prove to Tilly that he no longer has any interest in her beloved cove? This was a heartfelt, beautiful, love story." reviews Bookworm Babblings

Meet Tilly Rabel, a proud oyster-woman, and Landon Lockwood, the troubled son of one of the wealthiest men in America. The two could not be less suited for love. But when an old legend draws Landon to a hidden river cove, Tilly and he find each other, are lured by growing attraction, and repelled by competing desires to control Tilly’s waters. The hidden pool is replete with valuable mussel beds and the source of everything that makes Tilly who she is. Landon sees the illustrious treasure as the path to proving to his parents he is worth their love and worthy of the Lockwood name. Can Tilly trust Landon with her heart, with her beloved mussel beds? Can Landon trust that he has truly changed and doesn’t need his parents approval to live the life he wants?

Heartbreak, triumph, and a very special baby weave a tale sure to please readers who’ve read the entire Letter Series and those who are just starting the journey.
