Meg Pero has been assisting her photographer father since she was big enough to carry his equipment, so when he dies she is determined to take over his profession--starting with fulfilling the contract he signed to serve on an Army survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 1871. What she doesn't realize is that the leader of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry.
Captain Ben Coleridge would like nothing more than to leave without the woman who broke his heart, but he refuses to wait even one more day to get started. This survey is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team.
As dangers arise from all sides, including within the survey party, Meg and Ben must work together to stay alive, fulfill their duties, and, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.
In A Distance Too Grand, Regina Scott brought the Grand Canyon right into my living room. The views were described in such beautiful detail, that I can't wait to visit some day. Yet she also describes very well, just how dangerous it can be with those deep drop offs, that can be a life or death situation.
Meg and Dot were both my favorite characters throughout. The strength to carry on, even with their different occupations, was inspiring. They were very strong willed and both of them made sure to look out for each other.
A mystery, a great romance, faith in God, and learning to forgive are all what kept me turning the pages.
I love the thoughts that this is the first in the series of books about the National Parks. It will be wonderful to read more by this author.
