A Vision of Lucy by Margaret Brownley

Lucy Fairbanks is a young photographer in Rocky Creek, TX in 1882. She is trying to get a job with the local newspaper in order to use her photography on a more professional basis. Her first trial assignment is to prove that the wild white mustang exists by taking a picture of it. However, a robbery changes everything. Lucy is rescued by a mysterious man who she falls in love with. In typical romantic fashion, something threatens to break them apart. Will they be able to overcome this problem?
Brownley’s book was a bit predictable at times, but it also had enough twists and turns that kept it interesting. It was an enjoyable read and I liked learning more about photography during the late 1800’s. The quotes about proper photography by Miss Gertrude Hasslebrink from 1878 were a great addition to the story.
I received the galleys of this book from Net Galley for the purpose of this review.
