Benjamin Esherwood is a factory business owner having taken it over from his now deceased father. Christa's husband, Drew, works for him. Trouble is brewing among the general workers though, as they are demanding an 8 hour day for the same pay as the 10 hour day they are currently working.
As Mara gets used to living in high society again, there are naturally some laughs for the reader. When the children, being taught a dye experiment by Mara, splash it on her dress and face, what does she do? Laugh! (A woman after my own heart.) Experience the fun of the unusual introduction between Mara and Benjamin. There is an obvious spark from the beginning but Mara, being a natural matchmaker not to mention self-declared spinster, sees the look Hester, the governess, gives him and starts planning to get them together. HOWEVER Christa, also a matchmaker, is excited to think that Mara has a chance with Benjamin so starts working on that match. Who will win?
Written from both Mara and Benjamin's point of view, this adds an extra and interesting dimension to the story. What will happen when Joshua, Mara's first love as a child, now a widow, shows up?
Mara struggles with the concept of God's grace. Can she really receive "God's unconditional forgiveness, without having to dedicate every waking moment" making amends for the past? Does that mean her future could include marriage?
Written from a definite Christian standpoint, I did not find this book preachy. At 256 pages not too long and not too short. Plenty of time to develop the characters which the author did. Enjoyable read. Thanks, Liz
