"A Vision of Lucy" by Margaret Brownley
A Vision of Lucy by Margaret Brownley is a Christian romance set in the late 1800s. It is about Lucy, a young woman who desperately wants to be a newspaper photographer. When she meets David, a half-breed recluse who is suspected of terrorizing the town, she thinks that a photograph of him will earn her a position on the local paper. Of course, she didn't count on developing feelings for him, and David has an agenda of his own that makes Lucy doubt whether she can trust him.
This book is the third book in a series, but you don't really need to read the other books first. I would classify this as a light, humorous romance mainly because of the town it is set in. Rocky Creek is filled with quirky characters who make the small town lively. Our heroine, Lucy, is rather accident-prone and the situations she gets into could be described as "hijinks". However, the novel is grounded by the secret that David shares with some of the townspeople. All in all, this is a quick read with a happy ending.
