A Most Unsuitable Match
By Stephanie Grace Whitson
Published by Bethany House Publishers
Nice relaxing read. I thoroughly enjoyed being swept away in time and place from sophisticated St. Charles, Missouri, into the wild Montana Territory, late 1800’s.
The story opens as free-spirited, eighteen-year-old Fannie Rousseau grapples with making her own way out of her sheltered world with only her lifelong handmaid and friend left at her side. As Fannie uncovers a bundle of letters written to her recently deceased mother, topped with an unfamiliar photograph, she embarks on an adventure that proves to be the journey of her life.
The beginning did start out just a bit slow, switching back and forth between the characters of Fannie Rousseau and Samuel Beck. However, it did not take long to pick up the pace. As soon as these two characters’ paths cross, I was completely immersed into their journey. The twists and turns of the storyline are anything but predictable. It was only a few pages before the ending was revealed that I started to guess it was even a possibility. Each chapter is prefaced with a relevant Bible Scripture. How that Scripture applies becomes obvious as the chapter unfolds. From a Christian view, the truths applied are very biblically solid.
A Most Unsuitable Match is very well written, well developed and very much enjoyed by this reader.
