From Goodreads: Elizabeth never intends to fall in love with fiery preacher John Costin---especially considering that in Restoration England, he'll likely end up in prison. But she is determined to care for his children. Will a simple housekeeping job lead to love---and more danger than she ever counted on?
First, the storyline is beautiful and powerful and real and utterly compelling. The characters are alive - they live and breathe on the page.
The writing is superb, the words lyrical. I was enthralled, both as a reader and a writer.
I caught the "writer me" thinking things like, Oh, Jody, that was brilliant or Wow. That was the most beautiful butterfly metaphor I've ever seen. How did you do that? Oh. So. Beautiful.
The "reader me" lay awake long after I should have been sleeping, savoring the story like rich chocolate.
Whether you are a fan of Christian fiction, Romance, YA, MG, Picture books, Mystery - whatever - I believe you will enjoy this book. It's about love and loss and life; and so are we.
