I thought this was a nice little Christian book of characters wrapped around a love story. The main character is an educated woman whose father runs a school for boys. Her father is offered a job to tutor two young boys who happen to be the younger brothers of former students. The job is at the pupils home, which will require relocating to a new town. She remembers the older brothers from their days at the school; one was her friend and the other tormented her with pranks. Years later she’s curious to see how the older brothers fair, now that they are grown men.
As with many stories there is emotional conflict and a struggle to have a personal relationship with God grow. True to many historical fiction works, there’s is a clash with class hierarchy and the desperate measures people go through to retain fortune and status. To make the book even more exciting there is a mystery entwined.
I will look for more books by this author in the future!
