Warning, this review will contain a few spoilers.
This book has pros and cons for me. I suppose it reminds me a bit of a Jane Austen novel in that there is a lot of fickleness happening with these characters, making it practically impossible to believe. However, the story is filled with scripture and appropriate regency era details, which I do enjoy. The leading man falls in love with the leading lady in chapter one, and peruses her from there. Kind of rushed. As his relationship and understanding of God develop into something substantial, he prayerfully decides to follow a different path of employment. But, when something happens to suddenly change his circumstances, apparently those prayers did not matter, because that is thrown out the window and now the holy spirit has told him to redirect his path again. The sisters are annoying at best, but again, they remind me more of the sisters from Pride and Prejudice, which the book references from time to time as the characters are fond of reading Austen.
The new character, Miss Pickworth, is “London society’s witty tattler”, or gossip columnist of the day. She is a lower character in this book, bur apparently will make appearances in the series. I have the series, so I will probably read it and see if I like them any better, but I may read some other books first.
Overall, I would say this book is ok. Not bad. Not wow-great!
Things that ARE included:
*Several Discussion Questions at the end, along with supporting scriptures (a nice touch).

A good light read with likeable characters. It would be a great book to read at the beach.
