Book Review : Head in the Clouds

I adored  Head in the Clouds and the characters! Karen Witemeyer is a born storyteller.

Backcover copy:

Adelaide Proctor longs to find a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a governess position on a remote Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her silly romantic yearnings behind.

Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America’s wool industry, never expecting to end up with a child. To his dismay, five-year-old Isabella hasn’t uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon-and intrigues him at the same time. But he can’t afford distractions.

This novel begins with an almost unbelievable situation, yet as the author continues the plot, this situation becomes very believable as you realize Adelaide Proctor would, at that point in her life, follow her heart and not logic. Because of the initial decision Adelaide made, she follows a new direction and finds herself a governess on a remote Texas ranch. The love story between the main characters is very deep and gradual. As a reader I cried a number of times and SO did not want this novel to end. I loved the characters and how they grew. Not only were the characters deep, but the plotting was substantive as well. Awesome read!

I loved how clumsy Adelaide is – makes me think my clumsiness might be redeemable?! Let me know what you thought of this novel!
