In this inspirational historical romance, Edith is a nurse and has gone home to assist her cousin who is “with child.” Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high. However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger starts writing to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man’s inner soul before making any harsh judgments.

Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he’s as wonderful in person as he is in his letters.

Thoughts
This is the second book in the series, and this time we meet Edith, a nurse, who has gone back home to help with her cousin Melinda’s pregnancy and birth.  Melinda and her husband Gilbert are from book 1 in this series, as is Jenny, Gilbert’s daughter and Melinda’s step daughter.

I loved the first book so I thought I might like the rest of the books in the series. I’m not a big fan of historical fiction, but I loved the first 2 books in the series, so I will be listening to the rest.

I loved the “secret admirer” aspect of the book and spent most of the book trying to figure out which man he was. There was one part that threw me off a bit but I kept reading and pretty much had figured it out by the time he was revealed, which didn’t take away from the book at all.

This book was a nice short read (listen) and I liked it from the beginning to the end. It had a bit of everything, friendships, first loves, humor, and even a few situations that were a bit tense.

As I said above, I’m not a big fan of historical fiction, but this series is changing my mind.

Highly recommended whether you’re a fan of historical fiction or not.

  1. This sounds sweet and I love romances that involve the characters getting to know each other in unusual ways like through letters so that they can really get to know each other. I’ll have to add this to my list.

  2. I read the first book in this series and loved it. I have to get back to the rest of the series.

  3. How nice to like a genre you didn’t think you would! Thanks for sharing. I’m heading to Goodreads to add to my TBR list.
