Overview

In The Matchmakers, a young widow with two small sons feels very fortunate that her widowed father was there to help her care for the boys and make the adjustment since her husband's death. But now, a bit smothered by his caregiving, she feels ready to go on but is concerned about how to get him to step back a pace. A friend suggests a fine older widow in the church, who might divert his attention.
The older widow has a son who appears rather distant, seemingly self-absorbed. The young mother hopes to engage his help, but is reluctant to approach him.
When she finally decides to try the plan, to her relief she finds an ally. He has also been anxious to get his mother "to carry on with her life." Through scheming and friendly manipulation, they get the two "oldsters" together, but the results are hardly what they anticipate!
A delightful story in the marvelous inspirational tradition of Janette Oke!

I picked up this book in the middle of a busy college semester one weekend when I wanted to read a heartwarming story but lacked time for a long novel. It was perfect! This book is classy, cleaver, and classic. It's totally sweet!

This book is hard to put down. Stayed up late reading just wanting to see what happens next. Not just with the first book but with all of them.
