She is a self-centered young woman from a privileged family who fears the outdoors and avoids anything rustic. He is a preacher living under a sense of duty and obligation to love the unlovable people in the world. She isn’t letting anything deter her from solving a family mystery that surfaced after her mother’s death. He is on a mission to reach the rejects of society in the remote wilderness regions of Montana. Miss Fannie Rousseau and Reverend Samuel Beck are opposites in every way… except in how they both keep wondering if their paths will ever cross again.
I was instantly attracted to this story because of the intriguing time period and location. I enjoyed the story from the start, especially the protagonist and her struggle with duty and societal demands.
There were a few parts where I felt the story slowed a bit, but otherwise, I kept turning each page and looking forward to more. The hero is a dynamic character presented with unique obstacles and weaknesses he must overcome.
If you are a fan of historical romances, you’ll enjoy Whitson’s “A Most Unsuitable Match.” Check it out!
