This was a cute story. Emily and Gil have been at cross-purposes pretty much from the get-go, but an unexpected trip to her bath/soap shop changes things. As Gil and Emily get to know each other, they realise that much lies below the surface in each of their lives, and that God's plan for them is not what either of them expected.
I would give this book a 2.5. It definitely wasn't one of my favorites but it wasn't bad. The characters kind of pull at your heartstrings a little bit. It was a semi-entertaining read if nothing else.

I enjoyed this book. It was very clean, and romantic. I took about half the book before it got interesting, and caught my attention. Then, it was really heartwarming. I little heart-wrenching at times, and worth finishing.

Ex-con Gil runs a farm that rehabilitates young men who have lost their way. Emily runs a soap shop in town after her husband was killed in the city. Can the oil and water mix without the lye to make soap?

Unique and charming tale of love . The character of Gil Sorrent was very realistic and his personality a perfect counterpoint to the upbeat heroine.

altho has a little bit of "deep drama" in it, is another quick easy lite reading in-between heavier "stuff"

What a great read!

It had me laughing out loud at some parts and heart aching at others.

Everything was not okee dokee but real life of people failing.

Delightful read. Makes me want to drive down to Ky. Soaps and Such in Stanford, Ky. and stock up on my soap!
