This was a great book and I could not put it down. While Ms. Dean did not quote scripture she weaved in biblical meaning within her characters. I just purchased her other 4 books and can't wait to start reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I loved Courting Miss Adelaide, Janet Dean's debut novel. The historical era is different and interesting and of course wrapped within a touching romance. I look forward to more from this new author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Small-town spinster Adelaide has never found a husband but she believes she has a chance to be a mother. She applies to adopt a child off an orphan train. Bitterly disappointed over being rejected, she goes back to her job creating beautiful hats and ponders how to give the love in her heart to a child in need. Charles has just inherited the newspaper right across the street from Adelaide. All of the stiff-necked men refused to even consider Miss Adelaide¿s adoption application¿except Charles. Then one of the children turns out to need something only Adelaide can offer and Adelaide believes maybe her dream can come true. And the handsome Charles is encouraging her as she works to keep this child she has come to adore. Adelaide hopes that she can adopt a child and maybe even find a husband to love. But Charles has been burned by love and he¿s rejected his faith thanks to the hypocrisy of his abusive father. Courting Miss Adelaide is just wonderful. It¿s funny and poignant and full of love and heartache and charm. Janet Dean did a terrific job with her debut novel. It rated a 4 ½ stars in Romantic Times magazine and deserved every one of those stars and more. When you finish this book I promise you will close the pages and start hunting for more from Dean. Which will be coming soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
