Book Description:

Michigan, 1880
Annalisa Werner's hope for a fairy tale love is over. Her husband failed her in every way and now his death has left her with few options to save the family farm. She needs a plentiful harvest. That, and a husband to help bring it in. Someone strong, dependable. That'll be enough. A marriage for love...that's something she's given up on.
So her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom.
Then a man appears: Carl Richards, from their home country of Germany and a former schoolteacher---or so he says. He's looking for work and will serve on the farm until her husband arrives.
With time running out, she accepts his help, but there's more to this man than he's admitting. He's also gentle, kind, charming---unlike any man she's ever known. But even as Carl is shining light into the darkness of her heart, she knows her true groom may arrive any day.

My Overall Feeling of the Book:

I loved this book! I've been in somewhat of a reading slump lately. I've been reading but not really getting fully involved in the story. But this book grabbed me and drew me in until the end!

I loved watching as Carl and Annalisa's story unfolded. Carl transformed from a self-proclaimed weakling into a strong farmer who could handle anything thrown at him. Annalisa transformed from a down-trodden shell of a woman into someone who believed that love was possible.

What a wonderful read!

A Brief Excerpt:
