AN INCONVENIENT MATCH
AN INCONVENIENT MATCH (4) by Janet Dean: Iowa, 1901: Teacher Abigail Wilson has no use for wealthy Wade Cummings, especially after he broke her heart and his banker father broke her father’s spirit by foreclosing on their farm. When Wade offers her the job of helping his father while he recovers from injuries sustained in a fire, she needs the money, so can’t refuse. As Abigail and Wade clash over the future of one of her students and Wade clashes with his father over his future, Abigail discovers the vulnerability Wade’s father keeps hidden and the love she and Wade still have for one another. The heroine starts out with a hardened heart and a narrow-minded view of life. Her growth and maturation make this a touching story.
