The year is 1922. Seeking a better life for his family, Christian Rose and his wife Julia embark on a journey from their homeland of Germany to America, the golden land of opportunity. Working as a groundskeeper at an estate on Frost Lake, Christian and Julia live in the boathouse, where life is good and soon they are expecting their first child together. But with the sudden economic collapse from the stock market crash of 1929, the fate of the estate, and the boathouse, become uncertain.
Bootshause follows the tale of the Rose family throughout the generations, and the beloved boathouse and surrounding gardens that held them all together. A wonderful rags-to-riches tale, readers will enjoy this story that both captures the imagination and warms the soul.
With a knack for the romantic, H. C. Heartland has a unique writing style with wonderful character development and pacing. This novel is a beautiful reminder that there is nothing lost, that cannot be found, if sought. A truly memorable read!
