This prequel to the Wildflowers of Scotland let's us meet Pastor Ian couseling troubled couples. Suspense is added when his beloved church is robbed. Ms. Hansen's writing gets one emotionally involved with her story and characters with just a light touch of humor. I'm ready to read the rest of the series.

A lovely novella, prequel to the author’s Wild Flowers of Scotland series, Thistle Down introduces readers to a small Scottish town, its crumbling old church, and the handsome new pastor, Ian. The depiction of a pastor’s life is pleasingly honest and evocative, and the conversation of old ladies might be heard in many a church hall. Who shall they marry the pastor off to? And how will he deal with upcoming weddings where spouses seem so awkwardly unsuited?

Ian is wise beyond his years, both in spiritual and secular matters. His prenuptial meetings offer suggestions and exercises of value to any readers intending, or enjoying marriage. And his Easter sermon presents a wonderful image of comfort beyond the thorns. Meanwhile someone’s stealing artifacts, from a church! And the flowers of Scotland’s spring are coming to bloom.

Evocative, sensitive, sensible and sweet, this is a tale with well-drawn thorn and flower, making a truly lovely lunch-time read, in a world where not everything is resolved in one gulp.

Disclosure: I’ve enjoyed other books by this author and was lucky enough to be told where to find a free ecopy of this one.
