About the Author
“Eakes has a charming way of making her novels come to life without being over the top,” writes Romantic times of bestselling, award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes. Since she lay in bed as a child telling herself stories, she has fulfilled her dream of becoming a published author, with two dozen books in print. She lives in Texas with her husband and sundry pets. She loves watching old movies with her husband in the winter, and going for long walks along Galveston beaches in the summer. When she isn’t writing, she considers that housework is a time to work out plot points, and visiting museums is a recreational activity.

This novel about three women who marry in nineteenth century New Jersey and it explores the circumstances behind each of their marriages and how God uses the ups and downs in their lives to bring about His will and works all things together for their good. I found the book to be very inspirational. Also - the author does a wonderful job researching the time period and demonstrating the experiences of women in that culture.
