Love's sweetLove’s Sweet Beginning

by Ann Shorey

Book 3 of Sisters of the Heart Series

What will it take for a once-privileged young woman to make her way in the world?

It isn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry–and Cassie must find work to support them.

Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she’s exactly what his business needs.

With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.

My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Having read all of the Sisters of the Heart Series by Ann Shorey, this is by far my favorite. I loved the rest of them, but Cassie, the main character in this novel, is awesome. She was born of noble circumstances and taught by her mother that ladies don’t do any real work. But now that circumstances have changed and her mother and her live off the charity of relatives and friends, she’s tired of feeling useless. She puts her fear aside and steps out of her comfort zone to get a job to support them working at a restaurant. When her controlling mother objects, she must walk a tightrope of honoring her mother and making her own way. Jacob, the restaurant owner, is a kind man with a past he regrets and wants to stay hidden. He lives in fear that people will turn away if they know the mistakes he’s made. There are some other wonderful and colorful characters in this novel as well. It will keep you turning the pages. I read it in one day.
