Adelaide couldn't remember a more pleasant outing. Not once did she find herself wishing she could reach for the book she'd tucked into her reticule.A girl after my own heart!!
--An Uncommon Courtship, 114.
This is a delightful story of first love ~ learn as you go. Set in an unexpected circumstance, second Hawthorne son, Lord Trent, begins to court his Lady Adelaide.
When was the last time you began and finished a book in one day ~ well if you count 2:20 a.m. a day?! Loved this book. So sweet to see hearts opening to each other for the first time, uncertain of their way and encouraged by those who care about them.
Trent is wanting to give Adelaide the social standing she has never had before and not to be overlooked. She grows in assurance and receipt of who she is; kind, giving, and able to have a voice in what concerns her. Standing up for herself she is respected and able to move forward in the life the Lord has for her.
I liked the growth of this story, the trust they both have continuing forward, despite turmoil around them. Very well-written, this whole series brings family together in support and understanding. Good communication and I especially liked that Adelaide knew whom to go to for help and direction. Trent is well-taken as he turns to his brother and brothers-in-law. His sisters include Adelaide and assist watchfully in her coming out in society. Gossip is quenched being immersed in Truth.Fear of man will prove to be a snare,
but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.--Proverbs 29:25
How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you.
