Beneath A Prairie Moon, written by Kim Vogel Sawyer, is the best book I have read this year. It is so good, I feel it should be made into a movie. The story is so well written I felt like I was there watching everything take place.
Abigail Brantley was raised in wealth, educated at the finest school and was taught the manners of society by her mother. When her father was accused of illegal dealings, her engagement was called off. Shortly after her mother past away. With no where else to turn, she went to Helena Bingham to become a mail order bride. But the men she was sent to would not accept her.
Helena received orders from 16 men from Spiveyville, Kansas. Helena believes the men are lacking in social skills. She takes Abigail to Spiveyville to educate the men as well as the community on manners and morals as well as eating and dancing skills.
Mack Cleveland is about the only man in Spiveyville not ordering a bride. He feels that since God is the one who meant for man and woman to be together that God is the best one to bring Mack his wife. Abigail invites the whole community to her classes. When she teaches the classes, the sheriff, the pastor and Mack take turns watching over Abigail. As time moves on, the few men who did not order a bride, start to wonder if they should have.
This is a really good Christian Historical Fiction novel. There is humor, suspense and romance. I feel anyone who enjoys historical fiction, especially romance will really enjoy this story.
I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books. This is my honest review.
