The Jewels of Kalispell #2

Even in the midst of adversity, love and faith can flourish.

As the formation of Glacier National Park takes Eleanor Briggs and her conservationist father on a journey west to advocate for public lands, her heart carries the weight of a painful past. Since the death of her mother, she has spent her life traveling the country with her father and helping him with his work, but now he’s considering settling down and writing a book–and she’s not sure what that means for her future.

Carter Brunswick faces trials of his own when the Great Northern Railway’s departure threatens his family’s livelihood and the entire town of Kalispell. In the visiting conservationist’s daughter, Ellie, he finds a spirited woman who challenges his convictions in ways he never anticipated, and his own dreams for the future begin to change.

When tensions over the railroad’s departure boil over, Ellie and Carter are drawn together on a daring journey that tests the depths of their feelings and their faith in God.

 

Other Books In This Series


As I have lived east of the Mississippi my entire life, there’s a lot I don’t know about Montana history. So I’ve really enjoyed learning more about it while reading the first two books in The Jewels of Kalispell series, and I look forward to doing so in the third as well. With Each Tomorrow shines a spotlight on the uproar caused when the railroad – thought to be so vital to Kalispell’s economy – decided to relocate to Whitefish instead. With my husband unexpectedly out of work, I really identified with our hero Carter and the other townspeople who faced a great deal of uncertainty over their livelihoods, their homes, their families. There were so many times while reading this last night that I was echoing Carter’s prayers and claiming them as my own. Those reminders to trust God even when you have no idea what to do were exactly what I needed, and when it comes in the form of a story with characters you care about, it’s just that much more meaningful.

Newcomer to Kalispell, Eleanor Briggs is also facing some unexpected upheaval as her relationship with her father – and the work they’ve done together ever since her mother died – begins to change. She’s not on speaking terms with God, though, and watching her spiritual journey on these pages was very touching. Not only did it help me appreciate Ellie’s character growth even more, it also allowed the authors to work in very natural but clear Gospel conversations just as they did in The Heart’s Choice. There’s a bit of stopping the story for a sermon but I honestly didn’t mind because of how invested I was in Ellie and her guarded heart. Ellie is a compelling mix of tough and tender… and she is completely unprepared for the whirlwind that is Marvella Ashbury, the goodnaturedly-meddlesome-and-a-little-intense wife of the town judge. Marvella has four great loves in her life – Jesus, her husband, her dog, and matchmaking – and she keeps the story lively, fun, and full of heart.

Bottom Line: With Each Tomorrow is another example of how well Tracie Peterson & Kimberley Woodhouse write together. Montana serves as a gorgeous supporting character, one that is easy to fall in love with, and I find myself wanting even more to visit those mountains. I liked Carter and Ellie’s respective personalities (though I wanted to shake them both at varying points haha), and I could easily picture Ellie pedaling around town on her bicycle and Carter dodging the melee (however unsuccessfully) the day Ellie arrives in Kalispell. These two may be at different places in their Jesus stories but they both are wrestling with very real questions of faith that are relatable to nearly everyone in some form or fashion, and this is where the novel truly shines. A dash of suspense and the planning stages of the Glacier National Park round out this story even further, ensuring that readers have lots to love about With Each Tomorrow!
