As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and that includes Karen Witemeyer’s wonderful Ladies of Harper’s Station series. I have thoroughly enjoyed each installment in the series, and I was sad to hear that The Love Knot which is featured in the novella collection, Hearts Entwined, was going to be the last book in the series. I tend to get super invested in a series if I love it, so it’s always hard to say goodbye to the characters. BUT I will say that The Love Knot will not disappoint you. It ties everything all up, so you’re not left scratching your head and dissatisfied.
When her troubled younger sister sends her an unexpected package by rail, Claire Nevin’s orderly life is upended by the gift and the man who delivers it. Fighting to hold on to all she has built, will Claire lose what matters most?
The Love Knot not only features Claire’s story front and center, but also gives us wrap ups of the others’ stories. We find out more about Malachi and Emma, Ben and Victoria, Grace and Amos, and Helen and Lee. We get to walk with Claire as she navigates a huge shake up of her life and as she finds her way back to love, all the while enjoying the antics of the other characters.
I found the ending perfect. I was wondering how Witemeyer would end it all, especially the big question about the future of the women’s colony, and she answered it beautifully. I highly recommend this whole series….. and then go read the rest of her catalogue. ;)
