As Norah King surveys her family land in Iowa in 1880, she is acutely aware that it is all she has left, and she will do everything in her power to save it--even if that means marrying a man she hardly knows. Days before her wedding, Norah discovers an injured man on her property. Her sense of duty compels her to take him in and nurse him back to health. Little does she realize just how much this act of kindness will complicate her life and threaten the future she's planned.
Norah's care does more than aid Quincy Barnes's recovery--it awakens his heart to possibilities. Penniless and homeless, he knows the most honorable thing he can do is head on down the road and leave Norah to marry her intended. But walking away from the first person to believe in him proves much harder than he imagined.

Where the Road Bends is the first book that I have read by Rachel Fordham. I would like to give more of her books a try in the near future.
This story was pretty enjoyable. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, although I’m not too sure what it was that I was expecting. The characters were nice and the story moved at a nice pace. I surprised myself with how fast I read it.
I felt like some aspects of the story seemed rushed but overall it was a pretty good book that kept my interest.
**Thank you to Revell for the book in exchange for my honest review
