Interested in a historical novel? Reagan’s Reward is one you’ll enjoy . . .
In the summer of 1912, Reagan Kennedy assumes the position of governess to the Bernheim family’s twin nephews, and her life at Cherry Island’s Casa Blanca becomes frustratingly complicated. Service to a Jewish family and tending to eight-year-old mischievous boys brings trouble galore.
Daniel Lovitz serves as the island’s caretaker and boatman. When he tries to help the alluring Reagan make sense of her new world, her insecurities mount as her confidence is shaken―especially when she crosses the faith divide and when Etta Damsky makes her life miserable. As trouble brews, Daniel sees another side of the woman he’s come to love.

And here’s the book review, reprinted with permission:
The beauty of the Thousand Islands is but one reason Susan G Mathis writes such wonderful stories about them. The history and enchantment of the islands create the perfect backdrop for the mystery, romance, and godly journeys Susan develops with her characters, especially in Reagan’s Reward.
Susan takes one of her main characters, Reagan, a tender, sweet, young lady and places her in a tumultuous setting with a gruff patriarch who is opposed to Reagan as well as her faith.
Masterfully, Mathis brings her characters to a pinnacle outcome spurred on by the mischievous twin boys she is to govern and the island’s caretaker, Daniel, who is so intrigued by Reagan that his own faith is challenged and matured.
The journey to a pleasing outcome is sidetracked by the forks in the road of life making the reader wonder if things will ever work out. Such a satisfying and fulfilling read that will leave you better for reading this wonderful story written by Susan Mathis. ~ Laurie Raker
