Delightful & Admirable | A Love So True by Melissa Jagears

ABOUT THE BOOK

Jagears delivers a wonderfully romantic read with a hero and heroine to cheer for.

Evelyn Wisely has a heart for the orphans of Teaville and works at a local mansion that rescues children out of the town's red-light district and gives them a place to live. But her desire to help isn't limited to orphans. The owner of the mansion, Nicholas Lowe, is willing to help her try to get the women working in prostitution out of the district as wellif she can gain the cooperation and support of local businessmen to go against the rest of the community. 

David Kingsman has recently arrived in Teaville from Kansas City to help with one of his father's companies in town. While he plans on staying only long enough to prove his business merit to his father, he's shown interest in Evelyn's work and is intrigued enough by her to lend his support to her cause. 

They begin with the best of intentions, but soon the complications pile up and Evelyn and David's dreams look more unattainable every day. When the revelation of a long-held secret creates a seemingly insurmountable rift between them, can they trust God still has a good plan for them despite all that is stacked against them?


MY REVIEW

A delightful read from Melissa Jagears, A Love So True is the second book in her Teaville Moral Society series. (I haven’t yet read A Heart Most Certain, the first book in the series, so I can say certainly that this second book can be read and enjoyed on its own.) Main characters Evelyn Wisely and David Kingsman connect through working to help the orphans and prostitutes of the community, and their story has great drama, secrets, challenges, faith, and romance. As the plot progresses, I enjoyed getting to know and understand these characters better, both proving admirable in many ways. It’s a story easy to love, as I did, and I recommend it to readers of historical romance.

★★★★★
