About the Book:
In A Vote of Confidence, the stage is set for some intriguing insight into what it was like during 1915 to be a woman in a “man’s world.”

Guinevere Arlington is a beautiful young woman determined to remain in charge of her own life. For seven years, Gwen has carved out a full life in the bustling town of Bethlehem Springs, Idaho, where she teaches piano and writes for the local newspaper. Her passion for the town, its people, and the surrounding land prompt Gwen to run for mayor. After all, who says a woman can’t do a man’s job?

But stepping outside the boundaries of convention can get messy. A shady lawyer backs Gwen, believing he can control her once she’s in office. A wealthy newcomer throws his hat into the ring in an effort to overcome opposition to the health resort he’s building north of town. When the opponents fall in love, everything changes, forcing Gwen to face what she may have to lose in order to win.

My Review:
 Wonderful book! Absolutely a great start to a wonderful series! Robin Lee Hatcher has written many books, some of which I have read and some I have not. The ones I’ve read, I have loved and this one was no different. I felt apart of Idaho’s history. I love that feeling of belonging next to characters as I read a story.

This story is full of humor, love, and most importantly God. I love how this book is historical enough to still have horse and buggy but modern enough to have automobiles and plumbing. And the talk of women being inferior to men and not being able to do a man’s job and trying to over come that…wow! Gwen, Morgan, Cleo and even Harrison are wonderfully created characters who add depth to the story and truly make it come alive.

So, I definitely recommend this sweet historical to everyone! It’s a 5 star story by a two thumbs up author, and I can’t wait to dive into Fit To Be Tied, book 2 in the Sisters of Bethlehem Springs!
