Wonderfully written & I recommend it to all.
Josefa meets Mr. Oswald Heller III who is of the Philadelphia Hellers who are very rich and high up in the social circles Josefa wishes to be in. Oswald has other plans for the people of Persimmon Hollow, specifically the Catholics. He courts Josefa and insists from the beginning that they will be married and this will happen up north with his family, not hers. She is to obey him in everything and never question him. Josefa sees Oswald as a way out of servitude so she goes along with his demand, not quest, to marry and soon.
Josefa also meets Ben Stillman, who works for Oswald as a carpenter working on building a mansion nearly as glamorous as the Stetsons' mansion. Ben has a dream too. He wants to follow in his deceased father's footsteps and become a famous Botanist. In order to do that, he cannot support his widowed mother, sister and a wife on top so marriage is not in his immediate future, even though he falls in love with Josefa.
I was a little frustrated by this book due to the villain, Oswald, and all the lies and deceit he perpetrates on Josefa and the people of Persimmon Hollow. I also was a little frustrated with Josefa and her refusal to see Oswald for what he really was when she had many changes to see through his lies.
Then the author leaves you wondering what happened to a certain someone at the end of the book. I won't give away the ending, but it was a small surprise.
Even with the frustrating situations in this book, it was a very nice read and I would suggest it to anyone who enjoys a clean historical romance. Enjoy!
I had read the first book in this series but did not overly enjoy it and hoped this one would be better and it is. I loved that the characters were Catholic and getting a history of the growth of the Faith at that time in Florida, although it was a bit much.
I loved that I was able to see Josefa grow and mature spiritually and emotionally, it made her story believable.
The book had too many characters that were unnecessary and too many plots. Although I knew where the story was headed from the beginning of the book it still felt rushed and abrupt to me.
I received this book free from NetGalley and Franciscan Media for my honest opinion
