More About the Author

Award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes wanted to be a writer since knowing what one was. Her first book won the National Readers Choice Award in 2007, and her third book was a Carol Award finalist in 2010. Between December of 2008 and January of 2010, she sold thirteen books to Barbour Publishing, Avalon Books, and Baker/Revell, making her total sales fifteen. Recently, she added two novella sales to that collection, as well as having her first book with Baker/Revell, Lady in the Mist, picked up by Crossings Book Club, and six of her books chosen for large print editions by Thorndike Press. She has been a public speaker for as long as she can remember; thus, only suffers enough stage fright to keep her sharp. In 2002, while in graduate school for writing fiction, she began to teach fiction in person and online. She lives in Texas with her husband, two dogs, and probably too many cats.

This was an enchanting read that has inspired me to read many more of her Laurie Alice Eakes books!

The heroine of the story, Marigold McCorkle, has a big heart which is evident in her desire to remain with two recently orphaned children until their uncle arrives, resulting in halting her upcoming engagement. She eventually wonders if her beau ever truly loved her when he becomes too impatient and threatens to call off the engagement. But then that leaves her with nowhere to live... Unless she is able to stay with the children and their Uncle. Except it seems their Uncle Gordon is only interested in placing the children in a boarding school and heading off on his next adventure for gold. What is it that's driving him so much that he can't see what's in front of him?

How can the children stand to lose yet another family member they've come to love? Can Marigold persuade this stubborn man not to sell the family's excursion boat business, but to stay for the children. And perhaps her?

A wonderful, inspirational romance!

This is the third in the series after The Glassblower and The Heiress (all by the same author). I thought by far The Glassblower was the best. Marigold is directed by her father to work as a governess, because she was getting too comfortable with the wealth in her family. One of her ancestor was a maid to the Glassblower and his wife and became rather wealthy. Her charges' (2 children) parents die in a boating accident. Marigold waits for the uncle to show up so she can get back to her life of comfort. Uncle Gordon finally shows up but is all ready to leave again because he's a busy guy. Marigold is angry and the story goes from there. The story was so-so.

I chose this book to read because I enjoy historical novels. I liked the way people interacted with each other. The book offered wisdom and learning experiences of life. I would recommend this book to my teenage grandchildren who like to read.
