About the Book
Reluctant socialite Coraline Baxter longs to live a life of significance and leave her mark on the world. When her local suffragette group asks her to climb Mount Rainier to raise awareness of their cause, she jumps at the chance, even though she has absolutely no climbing experience. If she can do it, any woman can do it. And after her mother issues an ultimatum–that Cora marry the man of her mother’s choosing if she is not successful–Cora must do it. But she can’t do it alone.
Noted mountain guide Nathan Hardee initially refuses to help Cora, but has a change of heart when he sees what is at stake. He knows enough about the man Cora’s mother has chosen to know that the headstrong young woman should have nothing to do with him, much less marry him.
Climbing Rainier will require all of Cora’s fortitude and will lead her and Nathan to rediscover their faith in God and humanity. These two loners make unlikely partners in righting a wrong and may just discover that only together is the view most glorious.
Other Books in the Series
In My Opinion
The third and final book in Regina Scott’s American Wonders series was my favorite. I’ve been to the places where all three books were set multiple times (The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Mount Rainier), but Rainier is the place I’ve visited most.
Add in a plucky heroine who faces challenges head on, and A View Most Glorious is both exciting and entertaining. Cora is determined and fighting for women’s rights while her mother is more concerned with what society will think. And I don’t think Scott could have written a better hero for her than Nathan Hardee—a man who has eschewed society, has found a deep and abiding faith in God, and appreciates the wonder and beauty of God’s creation.
I would be completely okay if the publisher chooses to extend this series further than these first three books because there are a lot of wonders to see, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed learning some of the history surrounding the three settings explored.
