5 Stars Out Of 5
A Fulfilling Love Story
October 25, 2012
I have long enjoyed love stories where the hero and heroine have to overcome both society's strictures and personal obstacles to forge a life together. Her Good Name is an excellent story in that aspect. Espy Estrada and Warren (love that name!) Brentwood come from different worlds, even though they both grew up in the seaside town of Holliston, Maine.
One thing I loved about this novel was the way Espy always did right. Life had thrown her some pretty hard situations, and though she often thought about scaling back and not trying her hardest to honor God, she chose to do right anyway, time after time, struggle after struggle. I was so glad to see a happy ending to her story. But boy oh boy, was that happy ending a long way off at times!
Before Espy and Warren could forge a life together, they had to overcome society's class structure, cruel rumors, and their own self doubts. Both Warren and Espy ended the story as different and more mature people then they were when the story started. Plus as a woman who married a pastor, this story holds a special meaning to me. I'm so glad Espy and Warren found way to be together and Warren was able to pursue his divine calling.
