About the Book:
Harriet Hancock likes to make the lives of those around her better whether they like it or not. So, she is surprised when her friend Sophia Whitworth has ideas of her own on how to make Harriet happier–by throwing her together with Sophia’s brother, stable hand Jonas Fitzroy. When Harriet discovers his natural way with words, she hatches a plan that would benefit them both.
Holding a grudge against Harriet for her meddling in Sophia’s life, it is only because of his sister that Jonas agrees to approach Harriet about a possible artistic project. What he doesn’t expect is for her to request his help writing a book.
As they work together, they start to see each other in a different light, but when the truth of Harriet’s schemes is revealed, she’ll find her good intentions for once have gone too far.
This was so, so good.
Main character Harriet Hancock surprised me in so many delightful ways. I loved the little glimpses we got in the previous books of the series, but oh there was so much more to be discovered about who she was on her own.
Outgoing with a heart for adventure, she shined bright on the page and seemingly lept off of those pages. She was witty, and smart, and kind-hearted, while still having flaws and struggles, and lessons she had to go through. Jonas was such a stalwart, steady, and strong character – so sensible with a heart of gold and a devotion to God and the Bible. I absolutely loved all the verses he had memorized by heart.Both of these spectacular characters went through such a journey of growth in this novel, it was so touching. I personally deeply appreciated the message of purpose – or what happens when you don’t know what your purpose is, or what you want. Seeing that played out among the characters lives bonded me to them in a special way. I only wish they were real. ^.^The plot was so good, the faith message beautiful, and the romance extremely sweet. There was just a lot of heart in this novel that I absolutely loved, and it will remain a favorite. <3
