This is a touching story about a young woman, Delia Keller, who suddenly finds herself alone in the world without a penny to her name. She fears she'd soon be homeless if she doesn't find a job. Then a handsome stranger rides into town on his horse and delivers one final peace of news: Her father is gone, but she now has plenty of money to live on.
As I read this story and how worldly she became after coming into money, I can't help but to think how I'd act in her shoes. After just a little soul-searching I can say that I'd so the same thing. Having gone without for so long, a person - no matter how spiritual she is - will want to buy material things and have a place to call her own.
The romance was so great! I loved Jude Tucker and how he and Delia Keller came together. I can't say much without giving it away, but I was very pleased in how the author wrote the story.
Then there's Charles...Well, you'll just have to read it.
My only complaint is that I didn't know some of the words that the author used. I wonder if people like Jude and Delia would have used such language when they seemed to be pretty simplistic...just a thought.
