    1814 Hertfordshire, Regency Era, England Lord Trent Hawthorne is a man among men. He is handsome, wealthy, cultured and extremely cautious of ever getting too close to women. He has a biblical world-view, and therefore avoids situations that he feels would not make the Lord proud of him. He does not give the gossips any fuel. However, he is a charmer and loved by most of the aristocracy. So when his curious nature leads him to investigate a strange horse and singing coming from a dilapidated building on his property, the last thing he expects is to wind up married to a stranger! How in the world can he find love that way? The kind of love his family holds so dear. Lady Adelaide Bell is a klutzy, glasses-wearing, second daughter and of little importance or value to her over-barring mother. Adelaide has learned how to fade into the background, find comfort in books, and have low expectations of life. However, when her circumstances force her into an unplanned marriage with a man she knows nothing about, how will she ever navigate her new life and the constant questions along with self-doubt she constantly feels. Many of us overthink and assume potential outcomes. This book explores those emotions flying through the characters heads as they try to make sense of their new lives. But God has a plan, and will guide them along an interesting quest of discovery. The descriptions of clothing, room décor, Hyde park, ballrooms, etc. is lovely to read. The background characters are wonderful as well. Older brother Griffith is a pillar of strength and wisdom. Ch. 28 “Griffith sighed and set his arms on the edge of the desk… “Trent, you didn’t give your life to Jesus to follow your own plan. You have to follow His plan, and for whatever reason He gave you Adelaide and you accepted her. Now what are going to do about it?” Of course, there are a couple of villains to round out the story. Besides Adelaide’s mother, a flirtatious Mr. Givendale is a thorn in the story. And OH, the pineapples!!! Well, you’ll just have to read the book. Kristi Ann Hunter has quickly become a favorite author of mine, weaving a wonderful story, and she really captures the Regency era in a lovely way. Plus the book cover is gorgeous! © January 2017 Bethany House 344 pages In exchange for my honest opinion, I received a copy from Bethany House Publ. which I am privileged to provide with no other compensation. - 5 stars Read: 1/15&16/2017 - Reviewed: 1/17/2017 HAWTHORNE HOUSE SERIES “The Hawthorne House Series follows a set of aristocratic siblings led by the Duke of Riverton. Set from 1812 - 1815, these stories show how beautiful life, love, and family can be when you let God be a part of them.” (I love that there are more than 3 books, but we also don’t have to wait forever between stories!)

  • Choosing to Love

    I loved this book. Everything in this happenstance relationship was backward and both Trent and Adelaide had their work cut out for them to make it a marriage. it took a whole family to sort it out and a dependence on God and his word as the true guide.

    Thanks for your feedback!
