Today I'll be reviewing To Love and Cherish by Tracie Peterson & Judith Miller.
Here's an excerpt:
Escape to a Beautiful, Historic Island Resort
Bridal Veil Island, Georgia
Melinda Colson has been waiting months for Evan, the assistant gamekeeper at the Bridal Veil Island resort, to propose. Without an offer of marriage, she must return to Cleveland with the family she works for as a lady's maid.
Evan isn't afraid of hard work, and he hopes to be promoted soon. He wants to marry Melinda--but not until he's sure he can support her and a family.
Letters strengthen their romance until a devastating storm strikes the island. With no word from Evan, Melinda knows she must journey back to Bridal Veil in search of her beloved.
But the hurricane isn't the last calamity to shake up Bridal Veil. Melinda finds a new job on the island, but still no offer of marriage comes her way. Has she given her heart to the wrong person? Will she ever find a man to love and cherish?
My thoughts: I really enjoyed this one! It was fast paced & kept me interested thoughout the entire story, which I read in a day and a half. ;) I could definitely see a lot of myself in Melindas character. Most times things are just out of our control, but it takes a strong person to let go & keep the faith. Melinda continually wanted to "take the lead" to try and direct her life exactly where she wanted it to lead, instead of following Gods path & trusting that He knew the right, and best, way for her life. I would definitely read more fom Tracie Peterson & Judith Miller! A wonderfully romantic & inspiring read! A must on your bookshelf!
