THE BABY BEQUEST
Genre: Series, Love Inspired Historical, Current Series Imprints
THE BABY BEQUEST (4) by Lyn Cote: A misunderstanding leaves schoolteacher Ellen Thurston stranded in Pepin, Wisc. German immigrant Kurt Lang offers to take her to her cousin’s home, and she reluctantly agrees. Kurt struggles with prejudice; Ellen feels strongly drawn to Kurt, but must overcome her own form of prejudice: He resembles the man who courted her, then married her younger sister. A baby left on her doorstep just adds to her difficulties. This is a respectable look at the difficulties facing immigrants in the late 1800s. The heroine’s struggle to stay single, yet keep the baby left in her care, is easy to empathize with.
