    A reviewer

    What girl doesn't dream of a romance with a dashing rather mysterious Scottish lord? An expense paid vacation, a chance encounter with a Scot and an unexpected job offer make this an enjoyable read. Edwina is a charming story about the unexpected romance of a small town librarian who finds love when she least expects it. Edwina has plans to accompany her step-sister to Scotland on a vacation when her companion is unexpectedly called away. Edwina finds herself alone and friendless in a foreign country until she meets a mysterious Scot who sweeps her off to his castle. What follows leads to an unexpected love and a family of her own for this unlikely heroine. This book from a new author is a must try for lovers of clean Christian romance.

    Light, Funny and Heart Warming..

    I am normally a Supernatul Buff but I was PLEASANTLY PLEASED with this Book.. I was on the edge of my seat during moments , Laughing out loud and even brought to tears.. I am looking forward to reading the second book by this Author.. The Characters Draw you in and you can not help but love them.. The trials all the characters go through has happened to some one or another.. So on some level I think anyone can relate.. I recommend the book to anyone who is looking for a good read or something a little out of their normal reads..

    Captivating Read

    I sat down with this book, thinking to read just a chapter or two that day. I was quickly drawn into the plot and ended up reading it straight through in a day and a half. The main character, Edwina, was a woman I could relate to. She lives in the shadow of a perfect older sister, never able to measure up in beauty, talent, success, or confidence---at least in her own mind. And yet in her vulnerability and insecurities, she is warm, approachable, and real. I felt a kinship with her and couldn't help but root for her to land the man of her dreams. It's a great story with a satisfying ending. I'd highly recommend it.

    Ok

    This story was ok but it kind of rambled on before the point was made. I haveread several books from this author and I'm glad it wasnt my first. Otherwise I may not have purchased another one from her. The book was also poorly edited which was irritating.

    Her insecurities were annoying!
    Way too much background that wasn't necessary and not enough believable interaction between the two main characters. Could have been a much better book. Disappointing.

    Nice beginning...

    This book started out with promise but was disappointing the longer it went on. I was so hoping it would be the wonderful story it had the potential to be, but it never did. There were also several mistakes and typos, lots of wrongly hyphenated words, and very annoyingly had numbers and the title "Edwina" every so often right in the middle of a sentence. Needed to be proofread very badly!

    Good story but very drawn out and wordy. Took to long to get to certian points. Sometimes it seemed like i was reading a report not a love story. To much detail of unimportant things and not enough details in other places, don't get me wrong i love details to set the mood or get afeel or picture of the place or things going on but sometimes the book got boring , it went on and on and on. I wouldn't say don't read it, just be prepared

    The storyline is cute, however the writing, especially the dialogue seemed wooden to me. Maybe forced. There is too much talk about what the main character is wearing, what she's thinking about wearing, what she brought with her to wear, should she change her clothes again....

    There are several grammatical errors and many quotation mark errors which made it hard to figure out who was talking and what was really being said.

    Not my favorite book by any means, but not horrible either - just ok.

    I absolutely loved this book! I could relate witht the main character and feel her joy and sadness as well as her confusion in the end and really felt for her. It was nice to read a book about a common woman who was able to overcome her fears, go on an adventure and come to find her own fairytale coming true right before her eyes! I cannot believe this is free!!! So glad though! I want to read the next story-- Cecilia. This is a great CLEAN read, with nicely developed characters, plot and storyline. It felt like I was reading the actual details of a persons life. I couldn't put it down!!!!!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could! READ IT!!!! :)

    To Blah

    I know we all have our flaws (my first draft). I ask you not to over look what I have to say though short it still may show you something you have not thought about. I hope you do not think I am trying to bring you down but I do wish to put an end to what you said, as the Bible says "Hate the sin, love the sinner."
    Would you ask the same of methodist, lutheran, or even the catholic religions.
    Once again if I have made any mistakes in my note I apologize.
    In Christ's name,
    Little Pilgrim
