Rachel Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the town midwife, but when her daughter Alice died under her care, she refused to assist in a childbirth ever again. Since thenRachel has assumed the work. She also takes care of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's father was lost in World War I. But Rachel's principal job is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main source of income.
One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger ill with influenza, a man who has taken refuge in an old cabin in the woods nearby. Although badly scarred by wounds suffered in the War, he is strong and slowly recovers. When he gradually takes on odd jobs around the house, Rachel accepts his help. She is drawn to him despite his disfigurement, and his voice is comforting, vaguely familiar..

I was recently introduced to the work of Dorothy Garlock and when I had the opportunity to review her work once again, I jumped at the chance! I love her writing! Stay A Little is very well written and I loved all the characters. The story developed over time, which took a little getting used to, but still kept my interest fine. This is an easy to read romance, though not at all cheesy, and if you have been a fan of Dorothy Garlock in the past, you will not be disappointed with this book.
I highly recommend it and give this book a thumbs up!
