I’ve never thought I would be a fan of historical fiction. But before Christmas I joined a yahoo group American Christian Fiction Writers book club. They read different books and then “talk” about them via Yahoo groups. This past month I “watched” the process. So this month I’m planning to participate. This month’s book, Courting Miss Adelaide. Since I haven’t really shared my website with the group yet, I’m going to go ahead and post my review here.

Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the story. Although, the ending was somewhat predictable it was a good story. Miss Adelaide is a strong woman who thinks for herself and feels that the only “man” she needs in her life is God.

This story reminds us to trust God and His timing.

827962: Courting Miss Adelaide Courting Miss Adelaide

By Janet Dean / Steeple Hill Books
The “orphan train” seemed like small-town spinster Adelaide Crum’s last chance to know the simple joys of family life. So many lost children, every one of them dreaming only of a caring home-the home she longed to offer. And yet the narrow-minded town elders refused to entrust even the most desperate child to a woman alone..

Newspaperman Charles Graves believed his heart was closed forever, but he swore to stand by this lovely, lonely woman who was fighting for the right to take some motherless child into her heart. And her gentle soul and unwavering faith made him wonder if even he could overcome the bitter lessons of the past, and somehow find the courage to love..
