Product Description

In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and one is more than he seems.

In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. As the depth, passion, and sacrifice of love is revealed to Susannah, she begins to question the rules and regulations of her childhood faith. In a community where grace is unknown, what price will she pay for embracing love?

    Susannah Philips lives in a Puritan community in Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts. Just as her faith in God is seemingly preordained, so is her betrothal and marriage to John Prescotte. A beautiful redhead, she is unaware of how her appearance affects members of the opposite sex. She is only concerned that her goodness must be apparent to all, because the thoughts she harbors in her head are exactly what her community condemns.

    When the community is threatened by Indians, a military captain is sent to protect them. Captain Daniel Holcombe is precisely the kind of man Susannah knows she should stay away from, but something about him draws her like a bee to honey. The way he views God is completely against what the Puritans have taught her, and the way he approaches everything in life is contrary to what she thinks she believes.

    So when the town's wealthiest bachelor, Simeon Wright, asks for her hand in marriage, she is taken aback and confused as to what to do. Having no real reason to deny Simeon, her confusion about her feelings for Daniel only increase, and her bewilderment over John not stepping in to claim her only serve to spin her future in hapless circles. Will she be able to sort out her feelings in time? Or is a love greater than that of any man pursuing her?

    This read more like a tragedy than a romance. I really got into this story, despite my intentions to the contrary. As I sat there and read about Susannah's struggles and the ever-observing eyes of Small-hope, I couldn't help but wonder if girls like this existed in the past. The pain of Small-hope's past and the heartbreaking future awaiting Susannah are just some of the things you will have to read for yourself. I promise you it will be a pleasant journey. Just don't expect a light, fluffy, happy ending. This one will get to you, and the story will stay with you long after it is over.

    It was intense, full of intrigue and emotions. The fact that comes across in the end is very true and worth remembering, that no one can be saved by their own works.. God's grace and His work does it all. But I was disappointed with the ending, kept wishing that her story would go on to a better more positive, happy conclusion. It would be great if the author could write a sequel.

    If you are a woman of faith, please read this book.

    I will not give anything away. This is not my favorite

    time period in history much less fiction. That did not

    detract from my experience reading this book.

    Siri is in a class all her own when it comes to

    "Christian fiction." Her research and excellent

    story crafting should be acknowleged in the

    mainstream publishing world.

    Siri Michell's writing always surprises me and leaves me wanting to read more of her work. "Love's Pursuit" had an intriguing plot that left me wondering what would happen next each time I turned the page. It seemed to have a deeper message hidden in an entertaining story that caused me to ponder just how much God really does love each of us. The ending or even the last 1/4 of the book was not quite what I expected, but it was what this book needed. If you want a light read, it may not be for you, but if you want excellent, thought provoking writing this book is great!
