A Love So True - Book Review

Jagears delivers a wonderfully romantic read 
with a Hero and Heroine to cheer for.

Evelyn Wisely has a heart for the orphans of Teaville 
and works at a local mansion that rescues children out of the town's red-light district 
and gives them a place to live. 
But her desire to help isn't limited to orphans. 
The owner of the mansion, Nicholas Lowe, 
is willing to help her try to get the women working in prostitution out of the district as well-
if she can gain the cooperation and support of local businessmen
to go against the rest of the community. 

David Kingsman has recently arrived in Teaville from Kansas City 
to help with one of his father's companies in town. 
While he plans on staying only long enough to prove his business merit to his father, 
he's shown interest in Evelyn's work 
and is intrigued enough by her to lend his support to her cause.

They begin with the best of intentions, 
but soon the complications pile up 
and Evelyn and David's dreams look more unattainable every day. 
When the revelation of a long-held secret 
creates a seemingly insurmountable rift between them, 
can they trust God still has a good plan for them 
despite all that is stacked against them?




My Thoughts
Melissa Jagears has done it again!
She has written a story that will woo and captivate you 
from the very first chapter.
It's a story full of historical charm,
never-ending kindness,
dreams coming true,
unconditional forgiveness,
and tender love.

The two main characters, Evelyn and David, are an absolute delight
and I must say they are simply perfect for one another.
While reading the book I couldn't help but cheer them on.
Evelyn has a beautiful, tender heart. . .
a heart that is full of love for the orphans as well as the women of the red light district.
She will do everything she possibly can to help these precious souls.
But Evelyn has a secret
and it's a something she uses to distance herself from others. . .
including David.

David is an all-around charming, happy, and kind young man,
and he is not put off by Evelyn's cold nature.
He has burdens of his own to carry,
but instead of focusing on his problems
he sees a woman in need. . .
David's pursuit of Evelyn is priceless and incredibly sweet.
It will warm you from the very top of your head down to the tips of your toes.

This is a beautiful story of love and forgiveness
and how the two go hand-in-hand.
There are many ups and downs. . .
many bumps in the road as David and Evelyn find love and happiness,
but I truly believe you will read the last line and close the book 
with a smile on your face.
How do I know this?
Because that is exactly what I did.
There is indeed heartache and a few moments that may bring tears to your eyes,
but oh, in the end your heart will rejoice.

A Love So True is the second book in the
Teaville Moral Society Series.
While it could be read as a stand alone,
I highly recommend reading the first book
A Heart Most Certain.
You can read my review for it by clicking here.
The first book is excellent and one you don't want to miss out on.

Okay you convinced me to add this to my book list! I have a hard time finding books that "grab" me from the start. My 'technique' is that if I can't get into it by the 5th Chapter, it's going back to the library haha. Thanks for the review -- have a wonderful holiday weekend!
