This book finds a place in your heart! Mary Langton, the main character will take you through every emotion possible. Facing an unbearable marriage to a childhood friend Mary is torn apart. How can she avoid this inevitable tragedy? With her mother gone, she has no allies. She desires love, true love. Will Barnabas Horton be the man of her dreams? What develops over the pages keeps one glued to discover Mary’s reality. Her trust in God keeps her hoping and longing. Her eventual marriage reminds me of the way Leah in the Bible must have felt as she watched Jacob grieve Rebecca. As the account moves to the New World I really enjoyed how they made their way in a new colony learning how to live off the land from the Indians. Another move causes them to start all over again. Her new friendships add a deep dimension there yet she still misses the true love she lacks. The way Rebecca DeMarino writes this story each character comes to life . Her words compel you to keep reading until the end. Mary is my favorite and I long with her in her hope for true love. This read has much to offer and I highly recommend it.
