Annalisa Werner's hope for a fairy tale love is over. Her husband failed her in every way and now his death has left her with few options to save the family farm. She needs a plentiful harvest. That, and a husband to help bring it in. Someone strong, dependable. That'll be enough. A marriage for love...that's something she's given up on. So her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom. Then a man appears: Carl Richards, from their home country of Germany and a former schoolteacher - or so he says. He's looking for work and will serve on the farm until her husband arrives. With time running out, she accepts his help, but there's more to this man than he's admitting. He's also gentle, kind, charming?unlike any man she's ever known. But even as Carl is shining light into the darkness of her heart, she knows her true groom may arrive any day.

My interest in this book is: German Immigration. I'm so glad to see a story that involves a country other than just England & America. There were so many countries that built this nation and I am always glad to run across books that tip their hats to that.

Ideas expressed / message / plot: God cares for you; you're valuable whether poor or rich, male or female. He's never too busy for you. Persevering through challenges in your life.

Favorite Characters: Annalisa, Carl, Uri. I really liked Carl from the first moment I met him. I like his circumstance (Innocent, facing death. The reader is drawn to root for him from the first pages.) Funny, humorous Matthias was a great addition as well.

I like that Carl is being sent to help--he has no choice but to flee--however he has no skill set that is advantageous to his new circumstances. I can picture him wanting to help but looking doe-eyed because he has no idea what to do! "You're supposed to help." "Help do what?!" Yeah, Jody, good job. It's a light-humored tension that totally puts a smile on my face. (I say light-humored because Carl is never negative or whiney. He has a lightness about him and he is a man who takes the punches of life and does his best with them, always looking out for others over himself.)

When I finished this book I felt: content. I love how Jody put just enough German in the verbiage to remind me these were German characters, not English ones. It was perfect! Also, the family is one that I would love to have dinner with and get to know more. The last book that made me feel that way was MaryLu Tyndall's Veil of Pearls.

Over all: I would recommend this book to any and all older-teen/adult historical romance lovers (due to situational scenes; though I can say each was completely well written and placed! It's part of what made this book so real and I loved every aspect of the story!)

I give it 4 stars. Thank you Jody for a sensational read full of culture, God's love, and very real, memorable characters that we can learn from!
