    The first book in the series was thoroughly enjoyable - this second one, not so much. I thought it was rather plodding, with too much "fluff". It didn't get to the good stuff till right near the very end. I made myself finish it, but it became a chore.

    A tough beginning leads to a poignant ending.

    Mariah Harwood is purchased as an indentured servant by the handsome Colin Barclay. Mariah and Colin go through many trials, will they find that authentic love can prevail?

    I'm gonna be honest this book did not get off to a great start for me, and Mariah was very hard to love, or even like. Because while Colin was surprisingly honorable, despite one fleeting thought, Mariah had a tough time committing to Colin.

    I really loved the setting, and how well done it was done. There aren't alot of books written in this era so I loved learning more about the time during the French and Indian War.

    I think that this book was good but the characters were hard to cheer for at first. I kind of felt like Mariah and Colin didn't have a lot of time to get to know each other. But if you hang in there with them till the end, I think the ending is well worth the wait.

    I received this ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks.

    Sally Laity & Dianna Crawford in their new book, "Mariah's Quest", Book Two in the Daughters Of Harwood House series published by Barbour takes us to Maryland in the turbulent 1753.

    From the back cover: Bound to serve_longing to love.

    Mariah Harwood, one of three indentured sisters, stands on a Baltimore auction block in 1753. The dashing young gentleman who buys her may be her ticket to marriage, wealth and freedom. Once in Colin Barclay's possession, Mariah grows to realize her pursuit won't be as easy as she planned.

    Colin Barclay is as charming and rash a Mariah is reckless. He willingly outbids the other men for Mariah's indenturement papers, but as he claims the grateful beauty, her overbearing sister dampens his anticipation by making him solemnly promise to deliver Mariah untouched to his family's plantation. Undeterred, Colin welcomes the challenge of seducing Mariah-no strings attached.

    But best-laid plans soon go awry when Colin is wounded in battle. As he faces a world of bitterness, Mariah finds she needs more than charm to win his heart. Can she summon the inner beauty and faith to prove her love?

    It is always amazing to me that one set of parents can produce three children that are very different from each other in terms of temperament and viewpoints. Mariah is not like her two sisters; not in looks, not in her faith and not in her character. Can you imagine selling yourself into servanthood to pay off your father's debt? Mariah's sister Rose thought so and the three sisters came from England to America to do so. Rose's story was told in book one, "Rose's Pledge", now it is Mariah's turn. I like history and "Mariah's Quest" is loaded with it. There are Plantation owners and slaves, the French And Indian War and indentured servants. One of the themes I enjoyed was can God change our selfish personalities so that we can give ourselves to the needs of others? The answer, of course, is yes but the thrill ride that this story turns out to be has some real surprises before we find out that answer. "Mariah's Quest" is a great read, filled with drama, romance, history and suspense. I recommend this book highly. I am greatly looking forward to book three in the series.

    This review was written for Mariah's Quest, Harwood House Series #2.
    Mariah relied on her beauty all her life to catch eyes and gather marriage proposals. Now, she and her sisters have sold themselves into indentured servitude to help their father and she believes that her beauty will catch her a wealthy bachelor. When she stands on the block a good looking, young man calls out the winning bid and she rides next to him to live with his family. When she gets there, though, his mother is a powerful woman who has other ideas for her son than to marry a bondswoman. Just when things are looking up, Colin goes off to war against the French with George Washington. Mariah doesn't know if he will ever come back, and if he does, will he still want to marry her?

    This is a fun well-written Christian romance that follows the silly Mariah as she grows up and learns to rely on Jesus instead of her looks. The historical setting is during the pre-Revolutionary War era, when most of the east coast was still unsettled. If you enjoy Christian historical romances, put this one on your list.

    Mariah's Quest by Sally Laity and Dianna Crawford

    Daughters of Harwood House Book Two

    Three young women arrive by ship from Bath, England to the shores of Baltimore, Maryland in 1753. To save their father from debtors prison, the eldest agreed to sell herself as an indentured servant. Her two sisters agreed to come along. Lily because she only knew Rose as her mother figure and Mariah had visions of a wealthy husband. It was agreed they would all be sold together_.funny how things don't turn out as you imagine. The greedy ship captain sells them separately. This is the story of Mariah Harwood.

    Colin Barclay happened past the auction block when the most beautiful woman was being auctioned off, how could he not buy her? And he did. He brings her to his parents plantation and his mother seems pleased until she finds out that the beautiful girl is not a local belle but a bond servant. She is convinced to take Mariah in as a tutoress for his three sisters under the condition that Colin is to stay away from her, she only wants her children marrying well.

    Mariah is on the vain side and not surprised the handsome man has chosen her. She is not strong in the faith like her sisters and for all her outward beauty, Mariah is lacking in inward beauty. Through some tough life lessons and humbling situations will she finally sink low enough to look up to God?

    This was a really good read. You get to ride to war with a young George Washington and deal with slavery. At times it's an emotional ride between Mariah's shallowness, Mistress Barclay's uppityness and the war. But it was all brought together for an ending that had me wiping my eyes while trying to read the last few chapters. Book one in the series is called Rose's Pledge. As there are three sisters, there will most likely be a third book in the series as well.
