A Distance Too Grand, by Regina Scott, is the first book in the American Wonders Collection. Meg has been assisting her father with his photography for many years. After his sudden death, she intends to fulfill the contract he has to do an Army survey of part of the Grand Canyon. In 1871, women were not readily accepted as having an occupation. What she does not expect to find is a former gentleman friend as the leader of the group.
Ben is leading a survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, but he is also privately searching for any clues in his father’s disappearance.
This is a fun book to read. The characters are well developed and the writing is so clear it is easy to imagine the surroundings and what is happening in the story. It is a good, clean story that is very easy to get lost in. The story is filled with adventures and danger. One of the things I enjoyed the most in this story is how the characters were quick to help wherever they were needed and how they watched out for each other. I also enjoyed the brief history the author gives at the end of the story.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Reads Blogging Program. This is my honest review.
