Publisher's Description

From a hasty union begun in shame, a young man and woman struggle to build a lasting love.

Following a brief romance with George Mackenzie, Blue Gap, North Carolina’s most desirable suitor, Olivia Brooks finds herself abandoned and expecting a child. She is cast out of her father’s house and hastily weds George’s brother Luke, whom she has known since childhood. Luke hopes that giving his brother’s child a name will prove his own worth and provide a home for the woman he has long admired.

Determined to make a fresh start, they set off for Laurel Grove, Tennessee, but an accident on an icy mountain road forces them to take refuge with a Quaker family in Sweetbriar Creek. As Olivia and Luke recover from their injuries and await the birth of the child, they must confront their past mistakes and make peace with old hurts and betrayals if they are ever to forge a proper marriage.

    The main characters and their character growth through out this story was sadly lacking. For instants; they weren't in love and then "switch" ... they were in love. This story may have more character depth and struggle if the author were to wright it as a novel instead of a novella....The story wrapped up too fast!

    It seems that I have been on a little bit of a novella kick these last few days. Sometimes novellas are just the right length for me when I have been reading a lot of full-sized novels. So, when I read the book blurb for A Proper Marriage by Dorothy Love, I couldnt resist buying the kindle copy.

    What I found was a story that I became totally engrossed in from start to finish. Yes, it was shorter than a full-length novelI knew that going in! And, ok, I might have liked one more chapter or an epilogue at the endsimply because I really love epilogues and like to peek back into the characters lives down the road a bit. But, in all seriousness, this was a great novella.

    The premise of the story ensures that there will be lots of tension between Luke and Olivia right from the start. Both of these characters are really likeable. They both have flaws, and Olivia struggles with putting the past behind her. Luke was a great hero, stepping up to care for Olivia.

    I really enjoyed this novella and feel that the author did a great job of writing interesting characters, putting them in a situation of great tension, and providing a glimpse into the lives of the Quakers who came to their rescue.
