Ann dreams of a marriage proposal from her poetic suitor, Eli-until Will Hanby shows her that nobility is more than fine words.
On a small farm in 19th-century Ohio, young Ann Miller is pursued by the gallant Eli Bowen, son of a prominent family. Eli is the suitor of Ann's dreams. Like her, he enjoys poetry and beautiful things and soon, he will move to the city to become a doctor.
Ann travels to Pittsburgh, accompanying her father on business. There she meets Will Hanby, a saddle-maker's apprentice. Will has spent years eking out an existence under a cruel master and his spirit is nearly broken. But Ann's compassion lights a long-dark part of his soul. Through his encounters with Ann's father, a master saddler, Will discovers new hope and courage in the midst of tremendous adversity.
When the Millers must return to Ohio and their ministry there, Will resolves to find them, at any cost. If Will can make it back to Ann, will she be waiting?
I was actually quite surprised how much I enjoyed the historical aspects of this book, since I typically don't like historical novels. Some of the things that happened were shocking to me. I didn't know things like that could actually happen!

One thing I didn't like was the attempt at the love triangle. To me, it was sloppily done and honestly not that exciting. However, this was definitely a cute romance and worth a try!

I received this book free from review from a LitFuse blog tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
