Narrated by J. Grace Pennington
Run Time: 5 hrs and 32 mins
Anna Stuart’s whole world changes when she receives news of her little brother’s death. Desperate, she tries church again after a very long hiatus. There, she meets the pastor’s two young sons who are running a tad amok. Eager to be of help, Anna offers her services as a caretaker and child minder.
- I’ve heard about a dozen of these kind of Western-ish Christian romance stories, but this one was refreshing in a few of the details. Most of the plot is very standard, but little things like the fate of Anna’s little brother and the tough time she had growing up made it more “real” than several others.
- Anna’s struggles aren’t mind-blowingly unique, but her doubts and fears and solutions to such are still valid and relatable.
- The gossip mill works itself into a fine fit over the pastor’s choice to court Anna, though I can’t believe they didn’t think of that before the kid said something.
- John and James are cute, though at first, I thought the older boy would be the love interest. Took me a while to get his age was like 10 and not 16 ish because the language used seemed formal. James (the younger one, I think) is mute. Oddly enough, this is the second book in a row with a mute character. This sort of detail added a unique flavor to the book.
Fun Christian romance set in the 1800’s.
