This is the best book I've read this year and I doubt any will surpass it.

Once Richard Kendrick encounters the Gray family, he falls under the spell of not only their daughter Roberta, but also their family life itself. Realizing that they possess something he has been missing all these years in his own relationships, he strives to make himself better acquainted with them and in so doing, changes the direction of his life entirely.

An unusual romance, coupled with a cast of characters that demo

A very sweet story - I enjoy how Richmond positively portrays large families and their dynamics as the members interact with each other. However, I am tired of reading books about lazy, rich young men who fall in love with spunky, go-getter, independent girls and work to make themselves 'worthy' of the ladies by getting jobs. I think I've read about five or six stories like that......

One of my all-time favorite books. Again, a spunky heroine who speaks her mind and is all I-am-woman-hear-me-roar, and in the end finds true love. There are some fun, clever interchanges. This is very old-timey, written in the early 1900's-ish.

I enjoyed this. It has the flavor of Louisa May Alcott's writing. I'm looking forward to reading the other ones in this collection. The best way I can think to describe this is that it's kind of like Little Women but from Laurie's point of view (if he was a little bit older). It made me smile and it made me tear up.
My daughter asked me about this book today, and when I started to explain, I realized that I was halfway through and not much had happened, and that I didn't care about the characters, and I didn't even care if I finished the book. So, I stopped.

I appreciate her frequent theme - what's important in choosing a husband is not so much the outward appearance but how he handles crises - models of rectitude may desert you, but the ones who are steady are the ones you want!

Sweet book

I've read this book 4 or 5 times and love it every time. It's classic from times gone by and has a great moral message.
Mar 15, 2008 Lisa rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Joe Wheeler chose this book to include in his series of 'Great Stories' alongside such classics as Robinson Crusoe, Little Men, A Christmas Carol and Freckles. After reading it I understood why. I don't read romances, but this is kind of a suspense-romance-mystery-drama all rolled into one. Because of the type of values weaved throughout the story, it would make an excellent read for young women preparing for courtship (or whatever term someone is using...Godly relationship with intent to marry. ...more

This book was so boring that I came near to the end, where he takes the girl back to the mountain to propose and then ....... I put the book down to work and never remembered to pick it back up. So, I never finished the book. I have no intention to either. I have since read like 10 other books.
Jul 08, 2012 Dillon rated it really liked it
I enjoyed this book, but I did find the plotline and characters a little chalky. They didn't feel as deep and real. I really liked Richmond's other works a lot though.
May 14, 2012 April rated it really liked it
An excellent book, well worth the time. She waxes rather Pride and Prejudice like for a bit, but moves on. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this author.

I liked the change in heart and ambition shown from Richard's perspective, with only glimpses of Roberta's thoughts from time to time. An excellent book.

This story was written in 1919, the style of writing is a bit wordy, but the true sense of the story came through. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
