Overview

When her sister Abigail's beau returns from the sea after being thought dead for five years, Deborah Bowman is torn. She greatly admires Edward Hunter and believes him to be the best of men, but Abigail's heart now belongs to another. Deborah longs to honor her sister's choice, but why can't Abby see Edward's superior character and the miracle of his return? Edward Hunter has come back to life in the eyes of his friends and family. Marooned on a deserted island, only the Lord and thoughts of his beloved Abigail kept him going. But now that he's home, he finds he and Abigail aren't who they used to be. . . and neither is Abigail's little sister, Debbie. Could the Lord have used tragedy and separation to open Edward's eyes to what-and who-he really needs?

This story will make your heart sing. Poor Edward. You can't help but feel sorry for him and anxious for his cousin as he worries that Abby will want Edward back. But five years is a long time, and Edward and Abby have both changed. One thing that has remained constant, however, is Deborah's love and admiration for Edward. But dare she hope that he might return her affections? This enjoyable romance shows how getting to know someone's character and heart for others can lead to love. Beauty is only skin deep. While Deborah is by no means ugly, her heart for others makes her beautiful in Edward's eyes. Hold your breath as you wait for them to discover love and hope that they can get past societal expectations from that era to achieve the relationship they both long for.

Though this tale is totally predictable, the characters portrayed seem real and full of individuality and character. I like the descriptive detail of the Maine setting as well. This a a warm, cozy read with a happy ending for all.
