    I really enjoyed the story and plot line. Plot was so original and enjoyed. However, this book is definitely character driven. I really liked Grace. She went through a lot in her life, and it’s hard to say what one would do in her place. Truly liked Virginia as well. Andrew is just between a rock and a hard place...his story is well done. I really enjoy watching the characters grow throughout this novel, and I was drawn in to the time and place.

The reader doesn’t get to know much about Virginia and her story, and I would have liked that. I loved the characters, plot, and the faith theme in this book. The main characters are strong...and their faith tested. Definitely a book that will be on my forever shelves. I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own. The earnest prayer echoed in Andrew’s heart, and for the first time in a long while, a measure of peace spread through him. Only God can change a persons heart , Grace. All we have control over are our own feelings and actions. This was the kind of love Virginia craved. Passionate, powerful, and at the same time, sanctioned by the Lord.

    I admire Grace’s determination in fulfilling her promise to her ill mother. Not knowing what will happen on the other side of the ocean & facing the Easton’s who rejected her sister Rose is a mighty bold move in my mind. What she finds on the other end is not what she expected when she finds tragedy that scatters her plans awry! Even more bold, is obtaining the nanny position under the guise of an assumed name.

Not knowing what will happen on the other side of the ocean & facing the Easton’s who rejected her sister Rose is a mighty bold move in my mind. What she finds on the other end is not what she expected when she finds tragedy that scatters her plans awry! Even more bold, is obtaining the nanny position under the guise of an assumed name. Knowing the risk of the family finding out who she is, she’s forges forward in the desire to get to know her young nephew. Upon meeting Christian’s uncle & guardian, Andrew, the picture she had in mind is not what reality is. She quickly finds her heart tangling in feelings she doesn’t know what to do with. Not only is he handsome, but he truly cares for the boy and will do what is needed to care & provide for him. Along with the rest of the Easton family who’ve lost too much already--Mr. and Mrs. a son, Virginia aka Ginny, a brother. I think having Christian around is helping their hearts heal and Grace soon finds this to be true the more she observes them. This is a story of how all of these things play out. For me, it was chock full of emotion both happy & sad. My heart went out to both Grace and Andrew as they struggled with regret, guilt, remorse and feelings of not being enough, especially when it comes to their parents. Also how there were many reminders that in spite of human feelings, they are always enough in the eyes of God and nothing will dampen His love for them. I really love how this came together and how it kept me engrossed in it. When you pick up a book to read and it’s as if you’ve literally stepped into the pages and feel a part of everything going on you know it’s a good one! I couldn’t help but feel like the characters were people I would like to get to know…though Cecilia tried my patience on more than one occasion. She’s the spoiled socialite. If I could have reached through the pages to shake some sense into Andrew, I would have! Grace is the epitome of her name; gentle, graceful, never afraid to speak the truth in love and softhearted. She’s everyone’s friend and feels things deeply. Andrew is the swoon-worthy hero, though he struggles with regret and trying to prove himself to his father. He’s loyal to his family and will do the right thing, even risking losing his own happiness for family obligation. But we all know you can’t fight true love and when it comes knocking on their doors, will they have the courage to open it? Emotional and gripping, you don’t want to miss this! I can’t express how much depth this holds and all the layers the reader unfolds as the pages fly through your fingers. Susan Anne Mason is a master of telling stories that touch your heart and feed your soul at the same time. It left me smiling and wanting more and I can’t wait until the next book in the Canadian Crossing series! P.S. It was fascinating to learn about Canada's Dominion Day, July 1st. Seems to be much like our own Fourth of July celebration with family activities and fireworks to end the day with. Probably called Canada day in today's modern world! How fun to learn history through fiction. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House publishers on behalf of the author and was under no obligation to leave a favorable review.

Grace Abernathy travels across the Atlantic from England to reach Toronto, in hopes of helping her sister and nephew. However, the Spanish flu has reached her family first, leaving Grace’s nephew an orphan and stranding Grace in Toronto with few options. In her correspondence, Grace was left to believe that the Easton family would never treat her nephew well and she takes drastic measures to become young Christian’s new nanny. While living in the Easton household, Grace discovers that they are not nearly as evil as her sister made them out to be, especially after seeing the devastating grief the family experiences from the loss of Christian’s father in the war. Christian’s guardian, Andrew Easton, makes a particularly good impression on Grace, even as he finds himself engaged to a socialite with no love for his new ward. Andrew and Grace must choose between protecting Christian or following their families’ expectations for their future. Ms. Mason writes a compelling and heartwarming story that far exceeds the quality of her previous novels. Her focus on this series’ Canadian setting and characters mark a new high in her career, with these novels sure to be a fan favorite! Overall, I really enjoyed reading The Best of Intentions! This novel has a distinctly different style and pacing than Ms. Mason’s previous works, making it far more accessible to a broad audience. Grace and Andrew’s story seems quite unique, especially with its Toronto-based setting. However, it fits comfortably within the Christian historical fiction genre, serving as a natural extension of Ms. Mason’s other works. I found myself greatly appreciating the entire cast of characters in this new series, even as I have noticed that Ms. Mason rarely depicts father figures in a positive light within her stories. The minor characters fully support the main storyline, while some of the individuals will likely make future appearances elsewhere in the series. After reading The Best of Intentions, I am very eager to see how Ms. Mason develops the future stories within her Canadian Crossings series! Thanks! Brittany at the Books and Biscuits Blog PS.

Many people have lost loved ones and as a reader you are welcomed into the various stages of their grief as they seek to establish a new normal for not only themselves but for their families as well. This story has an over-arching theme of forgiveness. Learning to not only forgive others, but yourself as well as yourself. I appreciated the treads of faith woven into the story. There are lots of layers to enjoy in this story! While the historical details are light, I did enjoy learning about Canada's Dominion Day. I give this story 4.5 stars. Fans of Mason's other stories are sure to be delighted by this latest addition! I for one am looking forward to the next story in this series.

I love that the characters in The Best of Intentions are not completely good or completely bad. They are realistic individuals I'd love to meet in real life. Their struggles are relatable as they navigate the stresses thrown at them. It's always fun to experience a new area in a book, too, and I enjoyed picturing Toronto during and just after the Great War. Social and family expectations play a significant role in the story, but there is a great balance between the serious and the fun. If you enjoy well-written historical fiction, I would definitely recommend The Best of Intentions! (This review was first published on my blog -- sarahruut.com.

I can't begin to tell you how many times I wanted to thump him in the head and tell him to get a clue. If you love books with huge opulent mansions and plenty of romantic tension and drama without a lot of mystery or suspense, then this is the book for you. The setting in lovely Canada simply adds to the allure of this amazing story. Beautifully written as are all of Susan Anne Mason's novels!

The three decide to form a brief friendship until the ship docks INTENSE DRAMA May 1919, three strangers meet on the SS Olympic. Each one is on a mission to find family. Grace Abernathy is traveling from England to Canada to find her sister Rose along with her new baby and bring them home before her mother leaves this world. Quinten Aspinall comes to her rescue when a male passenger tries to take liberties. Emmaline Moore has a traveling companion who has not quite become accustomed to the sea. The three decide to form a brief friendship until the ship docks. Grace arrives in Toronto, Ontario and heads straight for the boarding house her sister’s letter has listed, only to find her sister is no longer there. The story takes several turns and she learns her infant nephew is now in the care of Mr. and Mrs. Easton, Rose’s in-laws. Rose’s letters adamantly detailed them as heartless people who abandoned their son and his new family. Grace is determined to get to her nephew and ensure his happiness no matter the cost. Andrew Easton has always felt second best behind his brother Frank. But, when Frank goes off and marries a young British clerk from his father’s company instead of the wealthy socialite he’s been courting and then goes off to war, expectations quickly change. Andrew must pick up the pieces, help run the family’s hotel business and marry the socialite who has turned her attention his way. His father leaves little room for argument and his mother’s failing health pulls his heartstrings as well. His path has been laid out for him, but he can’t convince his heart it’s all going to be okay. Then, when his nephew shows up in his life he is drawn into fiercely loving the little boy and adjusting his life to ensure his well-being. When he meets Grace life to gets more complicated. CH.4: Vivid recollections of his boyhood came to mind when he used to lie out on the back lawn at night and try to memorize the constellations. It was during those moments of peace and awe that Andrew had felt closest to God. … He needed to get back to those simpler pleasures. This story is filled with drama and intense emotion all the way through. Grace and Andrew both seem to carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. There are some very kind characters I enjoyed such as Reverend Burke who has really developed a knack for listening and gently guiding people. Plus he bakes cinnamon scones! Mrs. Chamberlain is a kind, doting, older lady who brings the first tray of tea (and toast) into the story (smile). Tea Moment (and happily there are many) - CH.6: She thought of her cozy room in the boardinghouse and the unexpected friendship she’d developed with Mrs. Chamberlain. She’d miss their cups of tea in the evening before they retired. But for a chance to be close to her nephew, Grace could do almost anything. I enjoyed learning about Dominion Day. Historical Notes: On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Ontario; and Quebec. The anniversary of this date was called Dominion Day until 1982. Since 1983, July 1 has been officially known as Canada Day. The S.S. Olympic is a sister ship of the Titanic and Britannic. She was considered a 'floating palace'. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys intense drama in a historical setting. At times I thought my heart was going to explode as it continually dropped into my stomach. Thank you to the author and Bethany House Publishing who sent me a review copy. My opinion is my own without expectation or compensation.

    Historical Romance is much different than contemporary romance. Yes, both genres are completely predictable, such as most romance stories are, but I enjoy traveling to a different time period and watching people live in their different worlds. Seeing things we don't have around anymore. Living in houses with customs we don't hold dear anymore.

Yes, both genres are completely predictable, such as most romance stories are, but I enjoy traveling to a different time period and watching people live in their different worlds. Seeing things we don't have around anymore. Living in houses with customs we don't hold dear anymore. Susan Anne Mason has created a new story The Best of Intentions taking place at the end of World War I, and I loved watching the characters interact in this world. Mason does a wonderful job at inviting me into the Eason's massive house with all their finery and money. She shows me what I need to see when I need to see it and invites me to travel through the property with Grace. Mason stays in Grace or Andrew's point of view. She really doesn't head hop, but she allows me to understand and empathize with their emotions. Grace is a strong character who lives with a lot of guilt and wants to discover forgiveness from her mother. From things in her past to her sister and brother. Mason doesn't show us if the return to England brings the forgiveness she is looking for, but I do know that Grace has accepted God's forgiveness and hopefully, she can move on with her life now. Andrew is a sweetheart of a man who only wants to do what is expected of him since his brother Frank disappointed his parents. But at what cost? His future and his happiness. Changes bloom and change at the Eason home for a number of important characters. The plot has been seen before, but I enjoy that Mason does throw a couple of surprises near the end. The story captured my attention, allowing me to rush through the pages, begging for more of the story and budding romance between Grace and Andrew. The ending made me smile, and I was grateful for their predictable happily ever after. One issue I had with the story is the world surrounding the Easons and Grace. It is right after World War I. Everything around them appeared to be happy and go-lucky, but I wish there was more of the aftermath of World War I mentioned in the story. Like for instance, did Canada take any hits? Was the world different for the people? How did the war affect Mr. Eason's job and money? What about the visitors to the hotel? The world changed after World War I, but in the plot, it didn't really affect the characters expect they lost family members, which is horrible in itself I understand, but I wanted more to make the time period stand out. This story could have been written during the Regency period, and I don't believe anything would have changed. Overall, The Best of Intentions by Susan Anne Mason is a delightful read with strong characters and a wonderful story. The time period fell a little short for me, but I still enjoyed spending time with Grace and Andrew. Fans of Mason's other stories, Rachel McMillan, or Jen Turano would, I believe, enjoy The Best of Intentions.

This book was the first in the Canadian series focusing on Grace Abernathy who traveled from England to meet her sister who is the widow of Frank Easton that happens to be member of a family that holds power and wealth in Toronto as they are known for their luxurious hotels. When Grace arrives she finds she came too late and her sister is dead while the baby is given to the family that rejected Rose. Grace is determined to know that her nephew is safe but she never imagines bonding with the Easton family and falling in love with Frank’s brother Andrew. Andrew never feels he can measure up to his father’s expectations as he is pressured to marry a socialite who cares nothing about his guardian Christian. He is stubborn to the point that he is willing to live a loveless life just to keep his father happy as he does not want to do what Frank did. Both characters never expect to fall in love as their futures are undecided. What will they do, will Andrew finally say yes to love even if it means disappointing his parents? Will Grace let go of the past and finally be able to forgive herself and see past her loss? This is an amazing novel, I loved getting to see the secondary characters such as Virginia and Colin’s story they were also two young people who had a forbidden love story! Some important themes were the effect that the war has on people and the loss of loved ones as Grace and Andrew felt guilt and pain as they could never feel worthy of their parents’ approval. Forgiveness was another key theme as both Andrew, Grace, and the older Mr. Easton had to experience when concerning family and loved ones. Overall I would recommend this novel, I truly enjoyed Ms. Mason’s writing! Ratings: 5.0 / 5.0 ❤️

I loved the side story of Virginia Easton and the struggles she's dealing with to please her family. No spoilers but the girl does have a bit of spunk. She and Grace developed a strong, lasting friendship. There are quite a few surprising moments, I loved them all. Susan Anne Mason knows how to write a villainous character too. I despised Cecilia! My heart was pounding in my chest for a while but was quite happy with the ending. I highly recommend this book! * I purchased the audio version of this book after I started reading the paperback copy that I was so graciously given by the publisher. I was having some visual difficulties and couldn't wait for them to clear up so I could finish the book. It is so very good!

She discovers even worse when she arrives: her infant nephew is in the custody of his father's family, a family who is highly thought of in society and who rejected her sister because of her own low social status. Grace is convinced the Eastons can care properly for baby Christian so she manages to procure a post as nanny to the child. Telling no one who she really is, she works under a different last name. She wants to see how this family lives and if they are reliable enough to care for the child. However, Grace never reckoned on falling in love with Christian's uncle, Andrew Easton. Andrew is almost engaged to a spoiled socialite who wants nothing to do with the baby. Can Grace protect the baby and her heart? Or only one? Susan Anne Mason has once again penned a wonderfully rich historical novel. She crafts believable characters and plots and draws her readers in from the very beginning. I enjoyed this book very much indeed. *My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinions stated here are entirely my own.

    I couldn't put this book down! Grace and Andrew drew me into their story immediately and I couldn't stand to put the book down until it was finished. I truly loved watching this story unfold and seeing how all of the character learned and grew as the story progressed. I HIGHLY recommend this book and can't wait for Book #2!

    What a great book! I enjoyed the growth of the main characters (Grace and Andrew) throughout the story. I recommend this book! Grace has traveled from Great Britain to Canada in search of her sister Rose and her nephew Christian. Andrew is courting a self-centered woman and is struggling under the thumb of his dictator of a father. Grace and Andrew both face struggles in this story as they try to do what is best for Christian and find where they belong.

    The Best Intentions is well-written with good character development. Susan Anne Mason does a good job allowing the reader to know the characters, both main and peripheral. I couldn’t help rooting for a good resolution to the break-down in Andrew’s family. I fully enjoyed the novel and plan to seek out more books by this author.

    Wonderful beginning to a new series! I love the setting of pre and post WWI, but I've never read any based in Canada, as The Best of Intentions is. I'm looking forward to the next story in this series.

    I like Grace's adventurous and impulsive native. Her gumption is inspiring. She reminds readers the length one will go to protect the one you love.

    Engaging From Start To Finish This story kept me engrossed from the very beginning to the end. I loved reading it and I look forward to more books from this series.
