Militine is running from her past. Attending the bridal school in Seattle seems the perfect solution. Make some friends, learn how to be a good wife, gain some real life experience and training and be far from a past you no longer want to part of.
Enter conflict. Wealthy men. Pastors who wish to impose their will upon a church. A particular man (Thane) with a past all his own he'd rather not be talking about it and you have all the mixings for an interesting book to read.
Milicent herself is a good character, well-developed, helpful, she seems a girl I wouldn't mind getting to know. :) Her best friend is Abrianna.
Thane, a good-hearted young man, recovering from a hard past. An easy character to like and appreciate along with his best friend Wade.
The book revolves around the lives of these four characters, with a wealthy business claiming a love interest, whimsical aunts (who run the boarding school), and a disaster!
Can't say anything more or I'll give away the book! :)
It was a good read, I enjoyed it, though sometimes I shook my head at the foolishness of the people involved. That foolishness is part of what made it a good read, waiting to see how it all turns out, friendship and love and concern and anger... it's all in the mix and God will see his people through.
