A MAN FOR TEMPERANCE
Genre: Inspirational, Historical Romance
While Morris has shown in his other books that he is capable of writing an emotional, engaging story, this is not his best effort. The narrative does not always hold the reader's attention, though the characters are sympathetic.
Temperance Peabody has her hands full. There is a cholera outbreak in town, people she knows and loves are dying and leaving their children behind. She offers to take a wagonload of children to their various relatives. She hires a man to help her -- he isn't much, but he is all she has. They will need to get along if they and the children are to survive the trip. (B&H PUBLISHING, Sep., 336 pp., $14.99)
