"If you havent yet discovered Karen Barnetts Vintage National Parks novels, Ever Faithful is a great place to start. Vividly set amid the stunning beauty of Yellowstones bubbling hot springs, forested mountains, and thundering waterfalls, Ever Faithful celebrates the history of one of the USs oldest national parks. It provides a fascinating glimpse into the workings of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s, giving a time of national crisis the immediacy of heart and hope. Elsie, Nate, and the whole cast of characters had me caring, cheering, and second-guessing as a suspenseful plot and engaging prose kept the pages turning. Ever Faithful will delight fans of Karens other National Parks novels and new readers alike."
Lori Benton, author of Burning Sky, The Kings Mercy, and other historical novels
"Karen Barnett captures the lively time and place of Yellowstone in the 1930s in this charming and wholesome love story. Firefighting CCC crews and hardworking pillow punchers (housekeepers in Yellowstone-speak) live, work, and play in the national park while learning to trust themselves and their faith to make life-changing decisions. This book made me want to go to a dance in the now-demolished Canyon Hotel, take a ride in a yellow bus driven by a jammer, and wander around Mammoth hoping to run into Herma Baggley, Yellowstones first female interpretive ranger."
Alicia Murphy, park historian at Yellowstone National Park
"With just the right touch of mystery and romance, Karen Barnett brings 1930s historic Yellowstone National Park to life in her new novel, Ever Faithful. Youll fall in love with her strong yet vulnerable hero, Nate Webber, who struggles to overcome his hidden challenges, and youll want to cheer for her spunky heroine, Elsie Brookes. Karens background as a park ranger and her skillful research bring richness and depth to this delightful and inspiring story. Highly recommended!"
Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of No Ocean Too Wide and Across the Blue
"I loved, loved, loved Karen Barnetts Ever Faithful! Set in iconic Yellowstone National Park during the Depression, this story offers high stakes, rugged romance, and a mystery with a twist. Ever Faithful is as wonderful as the wonderland its set in. Thank you, Karen, for a fantastic read!"
