Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr

This novel is wonderful. It is a love story where the characters actually have reasons to fall in love. We don't have to go through the cliche's of contrived conflict, and the wise council of Scarlett O'Hara's papa "Scarlett, me darling, just being man and woman is opposite enough," holds true. 

I read into the wee hours of the morning in a most delicious way which reminded me of flashlights under the covers only now I can breathe and I don't have to worry about Dad's grumping. This is a Historical romance.

Elvira Kilmer has faced numerous challenges in her barely more than 30 years which is why she is a spinster. She's been thrown out of her cousin's house and her other cousin is forcing her to take care of a pair of boys (6 & 3) who just lost their mother. She believes their father is overcome with grief. When he asks her to marry him, this handsome man who is younger by a few years, she is humiliated down to her toes. She can't believe God would do this to her after she had prayed and prayed. What follows is a wonderful story.

The characters are so well developed they become friends you want to pray for, and the situations/circumstances are so believable you ponder the solution as if it were your own. This is story telling at its best. I highly recommend it!
