Description (Publisher Website)
In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and one is more than he seems.

In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. As the depth, passion, and sacrifice of love is revealed to Susannah, she begins to question the rules and regulations of her childhood faith. In a community where grace is unknown, what price will she pay for embracing love?

When I started this book, I thought it was going to be a typical historical fiction romance.  This book is anything but typical.  There is a depth and beauty to the story that really is far beyond the norm.  The writing is beautiful, and I really look forward to reading more by Siri Mitchell.
I have to admit that at first I was really drawn to the cover.  I am a total sucker for a good cover, and in my opinion this book has a great one!  Once I started reading, I was really drawn into the story.  The story is very complex and not at all a light fluffy romance.  The characters are well rounded, and both the characters and the story take the reader to unexpected places.  There was an incredible amount of information just about the daily lives of these early Americans.
I'd highly recommend this book.  While it's labeled as Christian Fiction, any lover of historical romance will enjoy the book.  As I stated before, this isn't a light, fluffy romance.  This story will pull you in and keep you reading.  I finished the book in one day - I couldn't put it down.  Definitely a book worth reading and recommending.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
