Publisher's Description

Lucy Scarpelli, an Italian dressmaker from New York, befriends socialite Rowena Langdon as she's making her summer wardrobe. It's an unlikely friendship, but one that Rowena encourages by inviting Lucy to the family mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. Grateful for Lucy's skill in creating clothes that hide her physical injury, Rowena encourages Lucy to dream of a better future. One day Lucy encounters an intriguing man on the Cliff Walk, and love begins to blossom. Yet Lucy resists, for what man will accept her family responsibilities? Rowena also deals with love as she faces a worrisome arranged marriage to a wealthy heir. And Lucy's teenage sister, Sofia, takes up with a man of dubious character. All three women struggle as their lives, and those of each unlikely suitor, become intertwined in a web of secrets and sacrifice. Will any of them find true happiness?

    This review was written for An Unlikely Suitor.
    After having read the five-star reviews, this book was a disappointment! Knowing this author was a Christie Award winner really peaked my interest in reading her work for the first time! It was okay but is considerably less than I expected! It wasn't as spiritually deep as I was prepared for and the themes shallow. To me it is is disjointed in hopping from character to character without smooth transition! I was prepared for more! I could recommend this book but not enthusiastically!

    I really like the author and the time period that she writes from. I have read several of her books and I share my books with two other ladies that live on a low income. They also loved this book.

    This review was written for An Unlikely Suitor.
    Nancy Moser has penned a truly enjoyable read, a tale rich with unconventional characters trying to make their way in a society with clear dividing lines between the haves and have-nots. In Lucy Scarpelli, Moser has created a character that will inspire women of all ages as she refuses to let circumstances define her future and instead lives with courage and determination. She is rendered in sharp contrast to high-born Rowena, who seems destined to follow the path others have set for her, but who manages to grow throughout the story in a way that contributes to a satisfying conclusion. The characters were beautifully developed and their unique stories skillfully woven together.

    Moser writes with beautiful prose, and yet the amount of detail was just right as the book flew by and was difficult to put down, with some unexpected surprises. I have to admit that I never grow tired of reading historical novels of people born to poverty who, through their determination and God's grace, manage to rise above their humble beginnings. And, though I would not seek out a purely romantic novel, I enjoyed watching these characters find love in unexpected places and in spite of social mores that forbade that love. I do wonder if, in reality, love really would have conquered all, including greed or the promise of financial security, as is portrayed in this novel. But I am a sucker for a happy ending, so I chose to put aside such cynical thoughts and just enjoy the story that Moser so expertly tells!

    I highly recommend this novel for those who enjoy historical fiction. I always look forward to reading a book by Nancy Moser, and this one is absolutely another winner. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    My sincerest thanks to the publisher, Bethany House, who provided a copy of this book for the purposes of this unbiased review.

    This review was written for An Unlikely Suitor.
    A few months ago I received a copy of An Unlikely Suitor, a novel by Nancy Moser. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, I was just able to read this book this week. I wish I had been able to read it sooner!

    In An Unlikely Suitor, Ms. Moser takes the reader back to another time and place. While she expertly creates a picture of the poor of New York City in the late 1800s, she also recreates the magic of Newport, RI during the same time. The beginnings of three couples were beautifully woven together seamlessly. The author brought both the society of the time and the fashions of the time to life!

    This book was very easy to read and a very enjoyable read to escape reality for a while. I read it while on vacation with my family in the mountains and felt it was a perfect vacation get-away. This is a great book for everyone from teens to more mature audiences who love historical romance.
