Love's Pursuit -Review

Love's Pursuit  -     
        By: Siri Mitchell

Love's Pursuit by Siri Mitchell

Description(from CBD) 

In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and one is more than he seems.
In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. As the depth, passion, and sacrifice of love is revealed to Susannah, she begins to question the rules and regulations of her childhood faith. In a community where grace is unknown, what price will she pay for embracing love?

My thoughts:  I enjoyed this book.  I don't normally read about this time period, but something made me pick up this book.  I could identify with Susannah and felt such love and pity for poor Smallhope that I wanted to wrap her up in my cloak.  I did not however like the ending.  I won't spoil it for you, but it was not what I wanted to happen.  I suggest you pick up a copy of this book and give it a read!

I was not compensated for this review.  I bought this book and all the thoughts expressed are my own. Pin It Now!
