Lifelong bachelor William Jennings is a fierce-tempered, agnostic 19th-century Englishman---and an unlikely candidate for fatherhood.

Can she change his mind about faith . . . and family?

Publisher's Description

Lori Wick's bestselling English Garden series (more than 720,000 copies sold) is filled with engaging characters and stories. Now with fresh, new covers, each of the four books in the series will hold a favorite spot on the nightstand or bookshelf of any reader who loves a great romance.

The Proposal, book one in the series, is set in 1810 London, England. William Jennings has never been interested in marriage and family. So when a relative dies and leaves Jennings three young children, his world turns upside down.

Thrilled to have boys to carry on his name, William invests time in the two brothers, but the little girl is tended to by a negligent nanny. Finally, Jennings seeks help from his sister and soon becomes acquainted with her neighbor, Marianne Walker. Her strength and faith intrigues Jennings, but will he allow himself to fall for her and the God she loves?

    After reading several novels where the main and only point is the romance, it is refreshing to read a novel where there is more to the story. The three children are important characters and a lot of the story revolves about them grieving their father and getting used to their new life with Jennings.

    The reader also meets Jennings' sister, Lydia, husband Palmer and their children. It is through this family that Jennings meets Marianne Walker. And it is also Lydia and Palmer to whom Jennings turns when he starts wondering about the Bible and Christ.

    One thing I really like about this book and the series is how the author seamlessly includes portions of sermons and Bible verses. It's not "preachy" and the sermons serve a purpose in the story.

    Another aspect I really like is how the romance is handled; it's sweet, it's simple, it's chaste.

    Throughly enjoyed this book in the series, it shows how the power of God can work in the lives of people, and that He is still working miracles when we least expect Him too. The power of God working in the believers is awesome. A definite recommend read.

    One of the most touching stories of how genuine salvation changes a man from the inside out. The faith of three young orphaned children who still trust God will make you weep. What a powerful message of how godly parents SHOULD be raising their children - to stand on and in their own faith.
