In summary (not a summary of the story for that look at the other reviews) this is a book perfect for a cold winter's night, a rainy day, or a day at the beach, it's a book to be read and savored for all it's multilayered story. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and in the end you'll smile at the happy ending. I hope we'll hear more about Drew and Connie and their family.
Was I ever delighted to find a spirited heroine , handsome tobacco plantation owner and much factual history of that time period.
Be ready for sexual tension between the lovers ,but thankfully with tasteful descriptions of their affections.
The story line is of hard life in the newly formed colonies.of tobacco plantations in the new country and Deeanne gist stayed true to the trials of that time.
It is written with humor and I would lol many times.
I will look for more of her books.
I'm a picky reader,no filthy language or cursing for me, on the other hand please no fluff and syrup.
This struck the perfect balance.
There were a few Bible verses to help support the characters and move the story along. I wasn't bored once with the 347 pages, but did find it incredible that anyone would prefer living in these hazardous surroundings than back in the motherland where life was easier, money available and relatives to help out in a pinch.
I also learned about the Indian Wars of the 1640's, that 400 colonists and many more Indians were killed in just one such battle and that rowdy settlers who broke treaties was the probable cause of native attacks. I can't help but think we owe our forebears to keep their hardwon freedoms intact in this frustrating 21st century.
twists and turns, not only providing a guaranteed great page-turner of a romantic novel, but a fascinating introduction to a period and time in our young nation's history. I would also strongly recommend Deeanne Gist's "The Measure of a Lady", which explores a young woman's maturing in the exciting San Francisco days of California's Gold Rush era. Of similar interest is Francine Rivers, "Redeeming Love", an incredibly moving story of a young prostitute, Angel, sold into the business as a child in California's Gold Rush, and how a remarkable man plays a part in freeing her from the demons of her past and the slavery of her body and soul. Every woman will cry with Angel and for Angel and love her.
