When Annabelle Jordan's secrets are discovered by an unforgiving church community, she and her daughters are booted from town. Now without home or future for her growing family, Annabelle, no longer young nor ready to rekindle a once-cherished faith -- is convinced her only hope is to find the girls' father and force the marriage he pledged but later abandoned, or raise her daughters alone which offers no guarantee of security. But when the irresistibly handsome man of faith, Major Carlton Radcliffe, pledged to a family of his own, crosses Annabelle's path, he also steals her heart.
To offer her daughters the future they so desperately need, Annebelle must make the right choice. She could vow never to marry a gain and raise her girls alone providing them with no respectable future; she could continue her journey to the one who rejected her twice already; or she could risk ruining the reputation of the one man who now occupies her heart. What other choice does she have?

Iâ€™ll be the first to admit historical fiction isnâ€™t my first choice in genres but I enjoy trying new books and new authors. So I decided to check this book and Decisions Book Two: That Impossible Dream.
The first thing I noticed about the story was the uniqueness of the main character, Annabelle Jordan. She is a mother of two girls and has never had a husband. She played mistress to a army captain who promised to marry her but she sent him away. Now sheâ€™s been shunned by her uncleâ€™s congregation and finds herself traveling with her youngest daughter and the nanny to find her Captain and get him to fulfill his promise. Our primary male character, Major Carlton Radcliffe has his own issues having married a woman outside his faith who leaves him shortly after the wedding with another man. To compound the situation he learns she is pregnant with his child.
This story had some funny moments in this story as well as some touching moments, especially between Major Radcliffe and Annabelleâ€™s youngest daughter, Geraldine. You also see the worst in people in Annabelleâ€™s uncle and his congregation as they basically run Annabelle out of town because of her sins.
I enjoyed the storyâ€™s flow and watching the story unfold. There were a couple of things that did surprise me while other things I did expect to happen. The one thing that I did find surprising and know what some may be offended by, is some of the â€œthoughtsâ€ of Annabelle and the Major were very sensual. Almost to the uncomfortable point, however, in reading the second book in the series I think the author wrote the part based on the characters Annabelle and the Major and their previous history.
This was a good story that probably portrays what life was like for Annabelle. I would recommend this to anyone who like historical fiction set in the mid 1800s. As mentioned before some of the story is sensual in nature, but only in thought not in deed. In fact, one of the things I appreciate about Major Radcliffe was his continuous prayers requesting his strength in the face of temptation.
I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read and review this book. I was under no obligation to give anything but my honest opinion.
