Five Star Review on Amazon By Suzanne Mills
I just fell in the love with the character of Mattie. She’s an innocent young woman with a dominating mother who finds herself suddenly married off to someone she’s never met! Making a life in a remote area in the 1800’s is no picnic either! But it all comes together in a fabulous read that weaves interesting historical tidbits throughout. It was really a delicious read that kept me up late into the night. Totally recommend and I will look for other books by this writer.
