I was given this book in return for an honest review. Ok, so normally I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, however, once I got past my prejudice, I found that this was a well written, entertaining book. Cherry is headstrong, boyish, independant, and modern female. She would have done well in todays society. Her step mother tells her that she has arranged a marriage with a suitable gentleman and Cherry sees red as she wants to marry for love. She runs away, planning on going to her old nanny's for help. On the way, she runs into Sky, he is a well to do young man, who has requested a woman's hand in marriage, having never met her and needing help in caring for his younger siblings. They have an instant chemistry. I think you can tell where this is going. This book is chock full of humor, Cherry is entirely to headstrong for it not to be. Go check it out even if you aren't a huge fan of historical fiction. I enjoyed it.
