Overview

In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and one is more than he seems.

In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. As the depth, passion, and sacrifice of love is revealed to Susannah, she begins to question the rules and regulations of her childhood faith. In a community where grace is unknown, what price will she pay for embracing love?

Editorial Reviews

Mitchell's writing itself is a joy to read. True to period detail, even the thoughts of our heroine Susannah are rendered in a charming, long-ago cadence and rhythm. I'm certainly not an expert on 1640's dialogue but the turns of speech and trains of thought ring true and are consistent throughout....

Lovers of historical fiction should definitely add Love's Pursuit to their shortlist; it's unexpected depth, beauty, and quality of prose set it far above the crowd. I look forward to reading more of Mitchell's work in the future.
