Publisher's Summary

Author Deeanne Gist, whose writing credits include People Magazine, brings the harsh beauty of colonial Virginia to life in her first novel. Reluctant love and shared faith blossom during the daily chores and arguments of tobacco farmer Drew O'Connor and Lady Constance Morrow. Constance is everything Drew despises in a wife - she cannot cook and she prefers mathematical equations to cleaning. Worst of all, she has red hair! But when the two are forced into a marriage of convenience, Drew soon realizes how blessed he truly is.

Finding Love When You Least Expect It.

This book is one I like to put in the category of a Hallmark Movie. If you keep that in mind I think you will enjoy this book.

It is a sweet story of finding love when you least expect it. It shows the struggles of early colonial life and hardships of the people at that time with just enough humor to lighten things up. The story is sweet and innocent because there isn't any descriptive sex (it leaves it to your imagination) and it has old fashioned values which I admire. It also shows how people used to rely on God to help them through difficult situations....something else I admire.

The narrator did a good job with the story. No complaints.

Again, if you enjoy Hallmark type Christian romances give this one a try.

Nice read!

I really liked this book. After a few chapters, you get used to the reader. She did a great job. I liked how the book was set in colonial times instead of the much too common western pioneer times. This book (and author in general) is a much more suggestive than other Christian romance authors. Though nothing bad is described, there are a lot of sensual scenes. Nevertheless, it was a nice romance story.
