Book Review: A Noble Groom

About A Noble Groom:

Michigan, 1880

Annalisa Werner's hope for a fairy tale love is over. Her husband failed her in every way and now his death has left her with few options to save the family farm. She needs a plentiful harvest. That, and a husband to help bring it in. Someone strong, dependable. That'll be enough. A marriage for love...that's something she's given up on.

So her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom.
Then a man appears: Carl Richards, from their home country of Germany and a former schoolteacher---or so he says. He's looking for work and will serve on the farm until her husband arrives.

With time running out, she accepts his help, but there's more to this man than he's admitting. He's also gentle, kind, charming---unlike any man she's ever known. But even as Carl is shining light into the darkness of her heart, she knows her true groom may arrive any day.

My Opinion
I immediately connected with book since I could really relate to Annalisa - I live in the Midwest, my relatives are farmers and I am from German descent. I LOVED imagining my ancestors living a similar life and sharing many of her struggles as farmers back in the 1880's!

However, I don't think my German ancestors were waiting for a husband to arrive like Annalise was! :) I loved this storyline and loved watching Annalise experiences the fairy-tale love she never thought she would have!

Besides the great storyline, Jody Hedlund really showed great writing skills! I was hooked from the very first words of the book and I loved watching Annalise's struggles, love, frustrations, and so many other emotions and life struggles! This is a great book to grab to read and relax in the sun this spring!
