Genre: (an old-fashion) Romance suspense

Synopsis:
When a mysterious man named Matthew appears in the small Iowa town of Lost Nation, his sudden arrival raises questions about his past. Quiet with an apparent taste for rum, Matthew makes it clear he doesn't want to make friends. He isn't too pleased to be dropped off at Home Farm where the independent and eccentric Francesca doesn't accept bad manners or booze binges. 

Matthew doesn't want to form personal ties and intends to move on as soon as his damaged leg from a recent plane crash heals. But a series of events draw him into reluctant relationships: One with the feisty Francesca, the second with her 10-year-old granddaughter Sarah. 

In spite of her own reservations, Francesca finds herself falling for this brooding pilot but his past looms between the pair and what neither knows is that Sarah, Francesca's 10-year-old granddaughter, has encountered a stranger of her own... leading to a climatic confrontation that will put her grandmother's life in danger.



* I received a copy of this book for this review. That did not influence this review.*


Right away, I was introduced to the main protagonist Sarah. Sarah was the 10-year-old narrator of this book. I was then introduced to her grandmother, Francesca. it was indeed different and unique to hear this book from a younger person's point of view. That is something I enjoyed. I don't read contemporary romance novels often, but when I do find the time to pick one up, I find delight in reading them. I really enjoyed this short and quirky read. Even though you wouldn't normally pick up a stand alone, contemporary read, you have to check this book out!

Francesca of Lost Nation was unlike anything I've read before. Lucinda decided to focus this book mainly on the friendship between a 59-year-old woman and her granddaughter, Sarah. The romance was just another aspect that really bought it for me.

The setting played a huge role in this story. Lost Nation, Iowa couldn't have been a better choice for this elegant and romantic story. The story was set in the early 1940s post WWII era. Overall an elegant tale with a dash of romance- nothing too dramatic. Every so often I stray far from my usual schedule, and in doing so, I pick up some stand alone temporary novels along the way. I was glad I read this book and don't regret a thing!
