The Meadowlark by B.C. Walker is a dual-time novel that takes place in modern time and in the past from 1885 until 1936. It is the story of two women, Emma Rose, a rising star in the business consulting world and Cassie Rapp Walker who we first meet as a young girl. Cassie and her family are pioneer settlers in the territory of Idaho, they make their home near the banks of Willow Creek. Emma and her mother are mystified when her father requests to be buried in a rural Idaho town, Willow Creek. Here, the past and present collide in a touching story of love, family, tragedy and resilience.

I really enjoyed reading the Cassie timeline, filled with history and the pioneering spirit. The author does a great job of fleshing out her very interesting and at times difficult life.  The Emma story, for me, dragged a bit in the first half of the book with a lot of background details that didn’t really add much to the story. This modern timeline picked up speed in the second half of the book and I found it much more engaging, with a sweet romance and a mystery to solve.

Well written and edited, the book is a treat to read. I highly recommend this book to lovers of historical fiction and those how enjoy dual timeline stories.

I rate this book 4 ½ ⭐⭐⭐⭐★stars
