    This review was written for A View Most Glorious #3.
    I've been enjoying the American Wonders Collection from the very first book and A View Most Glorious was no exception. Regina Scott takes another gorgeous American natural treasure and brings it to life so vividly that you feel almost like you are standing there yourself.

    Mount Rainier is a familiar name but not a place that I know much about. I know that even today the climb can be treacherous but I'll admit that I haven't thought very much about those early climbers who risked life and limb with little to no decent equipment and no communication devices. In A View Most Glorious not only do we get a front row view of one of the first fictional women to climb Mount Ranier but we are also treated to the battle for women's right to vote and the somewhat lesser known economic depression that resulted from the 1893 Silver Panic. I love learning new things about history so it was fascinating to read about the effects on Tacoma, WA and the surrounding area.

    Regina Scott did a wonderful job with the conclusion to her American Wonders Collection series and I'm sorry to see it end. I liked the characters a great deal and loved the dash of suspense that the author put them through. I was entertained, intrigued, and simply enjoyed the journey that the story takes.

    You can read any of Regina Scott's lively and picturesque American Wonders Collection novels as standalone but you won't want to miss any of them, including A View Most Glorious. So, check out this book, this series, and this author...they are all well worth your time...

    A View Most Glorious is the conclusion to the American Wonders Collection. Cora and Nathan have a fascinating story, and while the two are very different on the surface, both they and the reader discover throughout the book that they have far more in common.

    This book gives a glimpse back into a past that I can barely imagine, a world where women could not vote, and where a trip to the summit was not undertaken by many people, period, let alone many females. It was a difficult journey for any person to make regardless of gender, and the historical details that Scott includes helps the reader to see why it could not be taken lightly.

    But Cora is a motivated woman. Part of her incentive is to be allowed to make her own choices about her life, including her profession, her activities, and especially her husband. She is very independent for the time and a marked contrast to her mother, who wants what is best for Cora, but cannot agree with her on what that is.

    Nathan is a strong man who made difficult decisions after others around him made unthinkable choices of their own. Shadowed by his family past, he makes his own way in a natural world that, while harsh, is at least honest about what it demands. And through it all, he gives glory to the God who created it.

    The two of them together make each other better, giving added perspective and insight to both their lifestyles and ways of thinking. I cannot help but wonder how much better off we would all be if we could follow their example. Not agreeing with you does not mean we cannott be friends, and it does not mean I cannot see your point. Maybe the solutions we could find together are far better than any we come up with separately.

    This is a great conclusion to the series. As with all her books, this one does not disappoint, but pulled me into a world where the details helped place me on that mountain with them, even as I curled tighter into my blanket with my cup of coffee warming my hands. Even more important than the adventure, discovering what truly matters in life is a glorious view itself, and one I thoroughly enjoyed exploring with the characters. I highly recommend this novel!

    I received a review copy of this book from the author and publisher, but was not required to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are both honest and my own.

    The best view comes after the hardest climb.

    Wow. A View Most Glorious is a wonderful historical fiction story about Coraline Baxter who longs to have an impact on the world around here. Sadly her mother wishes for her to marry someone she had picked for her. This crushes Coraline. As a college graduate, her hopes and dreams to impact the world are seemingly dashed. However, her involvement with a local suffragette group spurs her to new heights (pun intended).

    This is the second book I have read by Regina Scott. As before, it is an enjoyable romantic story based on history. Readers will enjoy the spiritual aspect as well as appreciate the history and some of what women have traveled through in the past.

    I was given a free copy from the publisher for my honest review which I was happy to do.

    I have read the other 2 books in this American Wonders Collection and have absolutely loved them! The author does a wonderful job describing the scenery which is just as majestic and beautiful as the covers of these books.

    This story follows Coraline and her hiking adventure to raise awareness for her womens group. Her stepfather was determined to find her a proper guide so she could be successful in her hike and not have to marry the man Coralines mother picked for her.

    As Coraline and her guide Nathan start their wilderness hike; they both discover they are both determined, kind, hard working and of good character. Full of faith and perseverance they both turn to God during their adventure and to each other. The characters and setting of this book were enjoyable to read. Highly recommend this historical fiction book and series. They can be read as stand alone books.

    I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
