Book Review: "A Tailor-Made Bride" by Karen Witemeyer
When Hannah decides to help Jericho's sister catch a beau -- leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town -- will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?
I loved this book! I loved the characters, the setting, the plot. Everything.
I love to sew and make things with fabric. The details about sewing machines, dressmaking, dollmaking, breadcloth making, fabrics and frills were all fascinating.
Hannah also is helping Jericho's sister, Cordelia, get in shape and attract the eye of a certain telegraph operator. The timing was perfect for me as I just started a "Fall Fitness Challenge." It was actually kind of motivating! Hearing the techniques used for exercise in that time was quite interesting.
The banter between Hannah and Jericho was so very life-like. I could hear me and my husband going back and forth like that anytime.
A very enjoyable read!
