Found this an enjoyable read.
This is another great read by Hannah Howell. If you enjoy her books you won't be disappointed with this one.
This book is about a Kentucky Scotsman and a newly poverty-stricken young woman. When Clover Sherwood is jilted by her fiancee, she asks the Scotsman she's just met to marry her. Clover has 3 dependents: her mother and twin brothers. This seems to be a simple solution, but it is not.
The book was a page turner with few lapses in the action. I enjoyed it.
The death of her father has left beautiful Clover Sherwood penniless and ostracized from Pennsylvania society. So when a prosperous backwoodsman comes to town hunting for a wife, the resourceful miss sees an opportunity to rescue her family from destitution-and proposes to the handsome Kentuckian on the spot.
