BUT FIRST, A WORD FROM OUR BLOGGER:
When I began reading A Most Unsuitable Match to my wife Nancy, I almost quit after one chapter. This blogger isn't fond of stuffy, society novels. But Nancy encouraged me to keep reading and I will be eternally grateful she did.
Besides the fun we had reading it together, Stephanie Whitson's coming-of-age novel of pioneer days romance struck a chord deep within my spirit. Miss Fannie Rousseau headed north on the "Misery River" to Montana Territory in search of her only remaining family, Aunt Edie. Blond and beautiful, young Miss Rousseau finds herself completely unprepared for the physical, personal, and spiritual journey she has undertaken. That journey provides the most satisfaction this reader has experienced in a long while.
Please, get this wonderful book and read it slowly, thoughtfully and prayerfully. It might just give you a wonderful gift in return.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Her first nonfiction work, How to Help a Grieving Friend, was released in 2005. In addition to serving in her local church and keeping up with two married children, two college students, and a high school senior, Stephanie enjoys motorcycle trips with her family and church friends. Her passionate interests in pioneer women's history, antique quilts, and French, Italian, and Hawaiian language and culture provide endless story-telling possibilities.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
