Love's Sweet Beginning: A Book Review

About The Book:

What will it take for a once-privileged young woman to make her way in the world? 
It isn't Cassie Haddon's fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry--and Cassie must find work to support them.

Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she's exactly what his business needs.

With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.

My Review:

A super sweet love story, completely with well-developed characters and a story line that draws you in almost immediately and keeps your attention throughout. I am not a fan of spoilers when writing my reviews (if you have followed me for any amount of time you will know this!) but suffice it to say this book is one that all fans of historical romantic fiction will enjoy! This is a part of the Sisters at Heart series and I do suggest you read the other two books first so you are familiar with characters and their histories! A great read that will remind us to always put our faith is God as we live life! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
