A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund
Families are just trying to look out for each other in Hedlund's newest release.
Annalisa Werner lost her husband by accident or murder. She needs to run the farm as well as care for her daughter and unborn child. Nobleman Carl von Reichert of Germany needs to run from his homeland. He's a wanted man and law is coming for him though he is innocent. Annalisa's father sends off for a husband from Germany. Carl's father (with the help from Carl's manservant, who felt like a father to Carl) sends him to the States to save his life.
A Noble Groom is a great story full of family, self-discovery, and faith. I loved the German heritage as well as the rags to riches storyline. It is a standalone piece, so readers will not have to bite their nails for the next installment. Yay!
Hedlund's next book, "
" is set to come out in the Fall of 2013. This book is set in the 1700's instead of the 1800's. I'm looking forward to reading it!
