The Road To Paradise (Shadow Of The Wilderness)
With interest in American National Parks at an all-time high, Barnett writes a new series of stand-alone National Parks novels, beginning with The Road to Paradise, a historical romance about a determined young naturalist resolved to work in the dazzling-but-untamed Mount Rainier National Park in 1927. In 1927, Margie Lane, an avid naturalist, convinces her Senator father to procure her a position at the fledgling Mount Rainier National Park. Since Ranger Ford Braydon lost his father in a climbing accident, he doubts his ability to protect the park and its many visitors. He certainly doesn't relish the job of watching over an idealistic and privileged young woman with no practical survival skills. When Margie's former fianc‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö¬¢‚àö‚Ä†‚âà√≠¬¨¬© sets his mind on developing the Paradise Inn and its surroundings into a tourist playground, Margie and Ford will have to work together to preserve the beauty and simplicity of this mountain hideaway, but the developer's plans might put more than just the park in danger.
