The book I’m featuring this week is:
Loudoun County, Virginia
Land sakes it was hot.
With temperatures in the 90’s the past few days, I understand the feeling! I recently discovered this book after a few of my other blogger friends posted their reviews, and I was able to win a signed copy that just arrived in the mail this week. I am anxious to read this one very soon!
About the Book:
With pert opinions and a less-than-perfect figure, Ruth Ann Sutton doesn’t measure up to Society’s vision of a perfect lady. When she accepts a position teaching in a Freedman’s School, it threatens the only marriage offer Ruth Ann is likely to receive. She’s forced to choose between life as a lonely spinster or reinventing herself to secure a respectable proposal.
Determined to rise above his meager beginnings, Benjamin Coulter’s reputation as a fast learner and hard worker earns him the opportunity to apprentice with a surveyor for the railroad—a position that will garner the respect he craves. After a chance encounter with Ruth Ann Sutton, Benjamin is smitten with her pretty face, quick wit, and feisty personality. When others ridicule his choice, will Benjamin listen to his heart or put ambition first?
