Beyond All Measure, A Hickory Ridge Romance, written by Dorothy Love tells the story of Ada Wentowrth as she travels from Boston to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee. In this particular instance, Ada thinks her new job is to care for Lillian, but rather than just being a caretaker, she is expected to run the household. In addition to the difficulties in her job, she is faced with concern by some of the people living in Hickory Ridge due to the fact that she is a Northerner.
I really enjoyed this book, since I am interested in historical romance book. I also liked the time period in which the book took place. Following the Civil War, there are many difficulties occurring in the south which Ada and the other characters must work their way through. I also liked the relationship between Wyatt and Ada, and I enjoyed seeing the relationship progress as I read about their lives in the Tennessee town.
