Beyond These Hills
It’s 1935, and Laurel Jackson fears the life she’s always known is about to become a memory. The government is purchasing property to establish the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and nearly all the families in Cades Cove have decided to sell. Laurel is determined to save the land her family has lived on for a hundred years.
Andrew Brady, the son of a wealthy Virginia congressman, arrives in the Cove to convince the remaining landowners to sell. Sparks fly when he meets Laurel, the outspoken young woman who is determined to thwart his every effort. Will they ever be able to put aside their differences and accept what their hearts already know?
In the third and final book in the Smoky Mountain Dreams series, acclaimed author Sandra Robbins brings a dramatic conclusion to the story of the families of Cades Cove.
The conflicts that arise in Beyond These Hills are realistic and so are the resolutions. The book had a good plot that moves quickly and believable characters that one can identify with. I enjoyed the setting as I love the beautiful, majestic Smoky Mountains. The historical facts were woven into the story seamlessly and made for a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book.”
I love historical fiction and learned a lot of history while reading this book. I visited Cades Cove 10 years ago with my family so I was able to visual myself in the story with Sandra’s descriptions. It made me want to go back again. I also appreciated the Christian message that Sandra has throughout the bookshe doesn't skim over the Good News! I would have to say that Beyond These Hills is a great read!”
In Beyond These Hills, engaging characters live their faith in conflict with government agents and find courage and strength to overcome extreme sorrow and natural calamities. The reader can’t help but look at their own faith and family, yearning for a stronger commitment to both. I highly recommend this book as a reminder of the importance of a strong faith in God and love of family in a world of rapid change and turmoil.”
Wow, what an awesome bookit was so exciting and full of surprises. There was also a lot to learn from the story such as learning to trust God and friends, not to judge others, and loving one another the way Jesus loved the church. Sandra has written a wonderful book that will keep you interested until the last page is read.”
