A MOST UNSUITABLE MATCH
Whitson brings readers romance, family, mystery and strong characters who are trying to discover who they are and where they belong. While the hero and heroine are as opposite as two people can be, Whitson’s skillful writing gets the reader to believe they belong together and will live happily ever after.
Both of Fannie Rousseau’s parents are gone, she has no siblings and the only person she has to lean on is Hannah, her faithful servant. A letter she finds among her mother’s things changes the course of her life and she’s soon on a ship to find the author of the letter, her mother’s twin sister, Edith. Samuel Beck is on his way to locate his sister, try to make amends for the pain he’s caused her and move on with the rest of his life. Fannie and Samuel like each other immediately, despite their different personalities. When tragedy strikes, they draw strength from each other. (BETHANY HOUSE, Aug., 352 pp., $14.99)
