An Appalachian Summer by Ann H. Gabhart Review


In 1933, most people are focused on the Great Depression but all Piper Danson can think about is how to get out of being a debutante and marrying Braxton Crandall. In an act of defiance, Piper volunteers as a frontier nursing courier in the Appalachian Mountains where adventure awaits.

My Thoughts

This was a lovely story of a young lady who chooses not to follow the path set for her by her parents and instead decides to serve a community of people with limited resources.

I enjoyed the setting of the story and appreciated the author’s honesty in describing the Appalachian people. I also loved Piper, she displayed courage and fortitude that was admirable.

It was very interesting to learn about the Frontier nurses and how they helped the community. The writing was very smooth and easy to read and the story flowed well.

Overall, this was an interesting historical book that I enjoyed.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
