This novel sounded good, and I loved the cover. However the book didn't live up to my expectations. For one thing there too many mistakes, and parts of the book didn't ring true to Georgia or Southern culture. Here are some problems I found:
“Fiancé” was used for the female instead of “fiancée.”
Southerners don’t call the midday meal “supper” nor the evening meal “evening dinner.”
One doesn't normally catch trout by just dropping the line in the water.
Why would Luke feel he had to pull two older men who weren't related or friends out of the tavern and back to the mission camp?
It talked about Annabelle crawling between the sheets in Georgia in 1896 in July, and the sheets being cold. I don’t think so.
Annabelle curtsies to men at odd times. Did women even curtsy in 1896?
I didn't understand why the MacKaye family sent for Annabelle in the middle of the night when Jarrett’s mother became ill. The doctor was coming and Annabelle and Jarrett were no longer together.
I’m pretty sure that by 1896, a couple couldn't get married without a marriage license.
At first, Luke was staying in his parent’s home in the Marietta area, but then, when he and Annabelle took a trip on the coach to visit his grandparents in Acworth, his parents had their home there.
In addition to these mistakes, I just couldn't make myself like Annabelle very much. She seemed so immature that I couldn't imagine what Luke saw in her. I kept hoping the book would get better, but, although Annabelle did make some changes, her personality never changed. Parts of it, especially some of Luke and Annabelle’s conversations were extremely sappy. I stretched it to give the novel 2.5, which rounded up to a 3.
There is a flood, & she finally realizes what redemption really is..
I was given this book in exchange for my honest review.
