To make things more complicated, and because of the kind of ministry her father had, journalists from all the known papers are sent out to find her. Asher is one of them. He is coming back to business after a two-year hiatus; he needs his reputation back and prove he is worthy of writing for the family paper.
He is the first to find Ruth, and decides to impersonate a sick man, ready to help when needed, in order to move her to compassion and have his story. This one of the books I personally classify as good for spending an evening with, and is very easy to read; despite an interesting twist that reveals a secret in Ruth's family, the ending is highly predictable - this is why I decided not to include more information about the book itself in this review. However, it is founded on good Christian principles, like the unconditional love that would accept any one, despite the kind of life or hardships people have gone through.
Ruth and Asher learn that true love only flourishes in truth, understanding that "the path chooses for each of us to follow isn't always an easy one, but we all have to decide whether or not we're willing to trust in His wisdom and embrace His will. A highly recommendable book for anyone who likes romantic novels. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a review.

He is greatly concerned for his daughter Ruth, and for Rosalie's sweet baby girl Lily, he makes plans to send her away, to the network of friends who help him save the young women from the streets of New York. Ruth, finds herself living with a couple she doesn't know, and posing as a young widow who has been rescued by the minister. Unable to share her true identity with anyone, she watches closely as the newspapers report the details of the trial of her father. Breathing a sigh of relief at his acquittal, she is sure all will be fine and she can return home soon.
But that would not happen, as the public outcry against her father only grew, instead of quieting. And then the sad news of his sudden death, Ruth finds herself an orphan taking care of an orphan. What will happen to Ruth and baby Lily?
Asher Tripp, wants to prove to his brother that he is a good reporter and that he can bring a story to the paper that will make a difference. His brother knowing that the public outcry in Reverend Livingston's case is crying for his daughter to be found, sends Asher off on a search for Ruth Livingston.
Will Asher be able to tell the story of where Ruth has been, and what she has been doing, without destroying the friendship and feelings that have grown between them? A wonderful story, I truly enjoyed the story of Ruth and Lily and Asher. I particularly identified with Ruth as she would become overwhelmed, forgetting that her help and strength comes from the Lord.
However she would remember and lean on Him and calm her fears. Definitely a book to read this fall!! This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
Oct 13, Karen rated it really liked it. Ruth Livingstone is on a mission, but not one she's chosen.
The package is eighteen month old Lily, the prostitute's daughter. Few people know that the child exists; the Reverend wishes to keep her out of harm's way. Ruth is the solution. The Garners take Ruth and Lily in, assuming that Ruth is a reformed prostitute in need of shelter. Ruth hates staying with them under false pretenses, especially ones that cast a shadow on her character.
Lily is an unruly child, and it takes every ounce of stamina Ruth has to keep up with her. In addition, Ruth anxiously awaits news of her father's trial, fearing the worst but hoping for the best. Even in , the media has all but convicted the Reverend prior to his trial. Prior to their separation, Jake and Clifford worked together at their father's newspaper. Ego and bad judgment placed Jake in a scandalous situation and he fled the city, leaving Clifford to pick up the pieces and salvage the business.

In an effort to win his brother's trust and a position at the paper, Jake agrees to locate the daughter of Reverend Livingstone. Local papers report her disappearance and speculate that the Reverend murdered her as well. Ruth and Jake's paths intersect in an interesting manner. Does Jake know who she really is? Ruth is wary of this reporter; can she trust him? How long will she deny her growing feelings for him?
Will the good Reverend be acquitted and restore his reputation? Assorted events, interesting twists, and action provide the answers; you must read the book if you want to know what happens! Parr's characters in previous books were real and engaging, and I expected the same with Love's First Bloom. I was not disappointed. Parr writes a lovely story that enables the reader to share Ruth's journey.
