Here is another lovely LIH, m’ladies. Dorothy Clark is a great author. I think I will read all her books from here on out.
Book Rating: Up All Night’er
Willa Wright has sworn off men. But, when the new Reverend shows up in town, he sets her heart a’flutter. Will she be able to trust again, and can Reverend Matthew Calvert deal with his new life’s challenges, while trying to make the charming (but cold) schoolmarm fall in love with him?
Well, you’ll just have to read to find out! *teehee *
This story was a quick, very enjoyable read. All LIH books get to the meat of things right-off, so you never have to wonder when the leading man and leading lady will finally meet or when they will start feeling attracted to each other. It happens in the first chapter. Yay!
Willa is a sweet girl, who hasn’t had many great “men” examples in her life. She works hard and keeps her life in strict order—promising herself never to open her heart again. I found Willa to be a lovable very enjoyable character. But, sheesh, her friend Ellen was a piece of work! Let me know what you thought about Ellen if you’ve read the book…
Matthew Calvert is a leading man anyone can love. Aside from his good looks and spiritual nature, he is caring for his niece and nephew after the death of their parents and the way he loves them is enough to melt anyone’s heart!
The romantic tension was strong, but I wouldn’t say this story was necessarily dripping with romance. However, I do recommend it.
Through the book Willa gains a stronger testimony of God, and I enjoyed seeing her faith in Him grow.
Let me know what you think about this one, y’all!
