*Highest Rank #1 in Historical Fiction*

Shy and awkward Elizabeth Montgomery doesn't think she'll ever find love. As her family's former plantation struggles in Reconstruction era Virginia, she's afraid she'll find herself either betrothed to the wrong man through an arranged marriage, or a spinster living with her widowed father. However, Elizabeth's sister Amelia is vibrant and charming, and sure to secure a valuable match. When two wealthy, eligible bachelors come to her family's plantation home for a visit, Elizabeth finds that she has to depend on her faith more than ever.    

Edward Stanton is a cocky bank owner's son, and his father, Charles, is pressuring him to take a wealthy wife to create a banking empire. As Edward resists his father's demands, the stakes become higher and higher, pointing to evidence that Charles has underlying motives for forcing a particular match on Edward.    

Will an unexpected love emerge from so much greed and manipulation?

I love it already. I'm kind of a history nut, and so including little details, like the Waltz being considered a scandalous dance for the time, really make a difference to me.

Holy Quran and Holy Bible both are divine books and have many things in common.
Ooooo, this is so exciting! I love Jane Austen and this time period in America, this book has simply started out wonderfully! I am excited to read on :)
as a maronite catholic with a really strong faith, you have no idea how much this means to me 😍

Yes but you cannot describe something or someone because you've only met a handful of people who are not as gentleman like as they should be
