Robin Willson5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Christian historical romance set in 1893.September 3, 2016Robin WillsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Lucinda follows in her father's footsteps, and those of her ancestors before her, by becoming a lawyer. She didn't have a brother, so she knew it was up to her. She had grown up reading her father's lawbooks, so it was a natural for her. She felt a calling to help defend women with issues like pension claims and land disputes. Complete with a college education, she is ready to set up shop, but her home state (Virginia) would not accept women lawyers. So her father set her up in Massachusetts, a state that accepted women lawyers, in a practice recently vacated by a friend of his. Only neither of them realized the danger that might put her in.
There was also a different kind of danger in town, a handsome carpenter, the best artisan for miles around. But his mother's background kept him from being truly accepted by the society in town. It doesn't keep him from falling for Lucinda, or her from falling for him, but it does place some obstacles for them to overcome.
The story unfolds in ways that you probably won't completely expect - at least I didn't. Each comes to realize the importance of God's love and guidance in their lives, accept who and what they are, and their love for one another - regardless of what they thought of others' opinions or even their own.
