Overview

Lucy lost Jack years ago. Jack Hunter's father was a drunk and a criminal, and Lucy Hamblin's father believed the apple lay near the tree.

It appears Jack Hunter will hang in the morning, and to preserve his property and provide for the woman he loves, he asks Lucy to marry him.

    It's All In a Name

    The Prisoner's Wife by Susan Page Davis is a very sweet inspirational. Lucy Hamblin loved Jack Hunter and wanted to one day marry him. Jack had asked Lucy's father four years earlier for Lucy's hand in marriage and was denied. Mr. Hamblin did not want his daughter associated with those ne'er-do-well Hunters, no matter that Jack was trying to shed his father's terrible reputation. <BR/><BR/>Jack has inherited his land from his father. Jack's mother passed away not too long after his father and since Jack has been working the land and trying his best to get everything respectable. He has been working in the hopes of earning Lucy's hand and proving himself an able provider. <BR/><BR/>Then one day everything changes. Jack is accused of murdering his crochety neighbor Barnabus Trent. He sits in jail for over a month waiting for a trial to held. If the villagers have their way, Jack will be hung the same day as his trial. <BR/><BR/>In order to save his farm, Jack asks Lucy to marry him and look after his farm. He is trying to prevent anyone getting what he has worked so hard to gain. <BR/><BR/>This book was a great read. I usually don't enjoy the Heartsong Presents books this much. This one was special. You could really feel the desperation of the characters. I would highly suggest this book for a quick, uplifting read.

    WOW!

    Set in the early 1700s, The Prisoner's Wife was a delectable romantic historical filled with action, suspense, and heart-pounding moments. I sat at the edge of my sea as Jack was accused of murder and worked up a sweat wondering how he would get out of the situation. The love that developed between Jack and Lucy was precious, and yet both of them were reluctant to share their true feelings out loud. It was so neat when he wanted to read the Bible with his new wife and pray with her. Lucy's enthusiasm was contagious. I felt her joy! And as the romance developed between them with such sweet longing and increasing fervor, I found myself turning the pages and thinking about the story even when I had to set it down to go to work. I loved it! It's one of the most romantic tales put out by Heartsong that I've ever read. It will take your breath away, I promise!
