The plot starts rolling right away and I didn't get bored or hit any lulls in this story. From the first page, I was rooting for the two main characters. Rescued by Joshua Sutton during a hailstorm, Honour Metcalf finds herself attracted and indebted to him. Chivalrous, kind, loving and protective, Joshua is a hero in every way, and Temperance Metcalf, Honour's precocious little sister, is captivated by him as well. Joshua finds Honour to be endearing, pure and innocent, and is amazed at the beautiful quilting and handwork she does.
A variety of situations and personalities are developed throughout the story, and heartache, disappointment and mistrust evolve toward faith through prayer and hope in the Almighty. The attraction between Honour and Joshua build, yet they find themselves facing one obstacle after another in their rocky journey toward love. Attention to detail and rich descriptive qualities make this an outstanding book of inspirational Colonial fiction. In addition, this book contains a spiritual message of faith and hope in God and the importance of relying on His ways.
This was a fun, enjoyable read that fits the bill for a relaxing afternoon or evening of reading. With endearing characters and vivid scenes, a sweet love story between Honour and Joshua, false accusations, and a little bit of mystery along with a surprise villain, there is never a dull moment. This book is filled with twists and turns and is sure to have you wishing for a happy ending for everyone involved.
Please note I was given a free copy of Pattern for Romance: Quilts of Love Series in exchange for my honest review.
