Description
Stunning Yosemite National Park sets the stage for this late 1920s historical romance with mystery, adventure, heart, and a sense of the place John Muir described as "pervaded with divine light."
Watercolorist Olivia Rutherford has shed her humble beginnings to fashion her image as an avant-garde artist to appeal to the region's wealthy art-collectors. When she lands a lucrative contract painting illustrations of Yosemite National Park for a travel magazine, including its nightly one-of-a-kind Firefall event, she hopes the money will lift Olivia and her sisters out of poverty.
    After false accusations cost him everything, former minister Clark Johnson has found purpose as a backcountry guide in this natural cathedral of granite and trees. Now he's faced with the opportunity to become a National Parks Ranger, but is it his true calling?
    As Clark opens Olivia's eyes to the wonders of Yosemite, she discovers the people are as vital to the park's story as its vistas—a revelation that may bring her charade to an end.

        April 23, 2018
        Yosemite National Park shimmers in this majestic ode to the western mountain paradise from Barnett (The Road to Paradise). When California artist Olivia Rutherford is approached by a travel magazine in 1929 to paint scenes from the park, she agrees to the lucrative project largely because she wants to shed her flapper reputation and be taken seriously as an artist. She also hopes to use the money from the assignment to have a show and present her artwork favorably to the California avant-garde art scene. Backcountry guide Clark Johnson takes Olivia on a short tour of the valley. A former pastor haunted by false accusations against him, Clark has been biding his time as a trail guide, hoping God would return him one day to ministry. A few days on the trail with Olivia reveals her hidden down-to-earth nature, and as they hike through the beautiful terrain, their mutual attraction grows. Through Clark’s grounded faith and gentle affirmation, Olivia begins to reconsider her ambitions. Faith is an integral part of this sweet historical, with references to God woven in nicely. Barnett, a former park ranger, brings natural wonder to brilliant life.
