Book Review/ Love Finds You in Annapolis, Marryland

Add caption

Mrs. White does a wonderful job with this book. I read it a few months ago, but it was one that I will remember for a long time to come.

From the beginning you love Lark. And at first you just can't help but think 'Man, Emerson is an idiot.' but the more that you read, the more you see that Lark isn't perfect and Emerson isn't all bad. About half way through I was cheering for them to work things out.

I loved how this showed a bit of an everyday life, romance, and a little adventure.

The characters where believable, the sub-plots not distracting, but strong enough for the story not to evolve completely around Lark and Emerson.

Mrs. White used some of the best description I have ever read in historical works. She gave you glimpses of the 18th century world, without making you ram into the objects, slowing the story enough so your not reading a Disney where everything is worked out in a day.

What I liked:

Everything. ;)

What I didn't like:

Nothing, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Back cover:

In 1784 peace has been declared, but war still rages in the heart of Lark Benton. Never did Lark think she'd want to escape Emerson Fielding, the man she's loved all her life, but then he betrays her with her cousin. She flees to Annapolis, Maryland, the country's capital, and throws herself into a new circle of friends who force her to examine all she believes. Emerson follows, determined to reclaim his bride. Surprised when she refuses to return with him, he realizes that in this new country he has come to call his own, duty is no longer enough. He must learn to open his heart and soul to something greater... before he loses all he should have been fighting to hold.
