She'll Settle for One Made in Texas
Whether it's riding bikes, catching snakes, or sliding down banisters, Essie Spreckelmeyer just can't quite make herself into the ideal woman her hometown--and her mother--expect her to be. It's going to take an extraordinary man to appreciate her joy and spontaneity--or so says her doting oil-man father.
Unfortunately such a man doesn't appear to reside in Corsicana, Texas.
It's 1894, the year of Essie's thirtieth birthday, and she decides the Lord has more important things to do than provide her a husband. If she wants one, she needs to catch him herself. So, she writes down the names of all the eligible bachelors in her small Texas town, makes a list of their attributes and drawbacks, closes her eyes, twirls her finger, and ... picks one.
But convincing the lucky "husband-to-be" is going to a bit more of a problem.
Join Deeanne Gist for another unforgettable tale and find out whether Essie's plan to catch a husband succeeds or if she's just Courting Trouble.
AvidReaderCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A must-read for singles, but enjoyable for everyoneApril 5, 2015AvidReaderCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Deeanne is a skilled writer, but I particularly loved this book of hers. It's not your typical boy-meets-girl-they-face-an-obstacle-but-love-conquers romance. The main character is unconventional, but she's so likeable. I wanted the best for her and longed to share my experiences with her. I was sad when she made a bad decision, but I loved that she learned truth from it. She discovered her false expectations of relationships, herself, and God--expectations that just about everyone has at some point. I think this book is so valuable for singles--and wish I'd read it when I was single--but it also is a wonderful read for everyone. I highly recommend this book.
SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5The Journey of Love is Not Always EasyJanuary 14, 2014SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I thought that the book started out a little slow. It was hard for me to be interested in it at first. It started going in one direction and then all of a sudden the story changed. I think that's the point where it started to interest me. I actually enjoyed the book. I liked Essie and I was always rooting for her. What I enjoyed about the story is that it was different and unique. It was unlike any other story that I have read. I love that Gist wrote about a touchy subject and that Essie made a huge mistake, but she was able to overcome and move past it. It's an extremely realistic story of things that really happen in the real world. Most love stories are not perfect and sometimes it's refreshing to read a book that isn't a carbon copy love story that I have read hundreds of times.
A few reviewers have mentioned the sex scene in the book. It is not descriptive at all. The book does discretely discuss what happened between the characters, but it's not something that should stop you from reading the book. I do not understand why some people are uncomfortable with sex. This is far from an erotic novel and it's a little annoying that some readers made such a big deal over the scene. If you get grossed out or embarrassed over any mention of a sexual encounter then this book might not be for you. If you are mature enough and can handle it, then you will enjoy this book. Humans are not perfect, we make mistakes. God can forgive us of our mistakes and make us new again. That's what this story is about.
