It seemed like lovely weather for a light romantic fiction and this one, with its sassy redheaded heroine (<3!), early twentieth century setting (<3!) and setting of the Amazon (<3!) seemed like a perfect fit.

This series by Gilbert Morris is one of my absolute favorites. Each book follows at least one member of a generation in the Winslow family tree and the member(s) gets saved and finds true love. There's also some commentary on the social conditions of the time frame. Truly interesting.
