Hestia is a young woman in the early 1920s who goes to a small town to care for her aunt. Her cousin ends up joining them, since she's in the family way and needs to endure her confinement in secrecy. Booth, a man of Hestia's acquaintance from years past, makes an appearance and Hestia is definitely interested.

I really enjoyed learning more about the roaring 20s--phrases, expressions, fashion, etc. However, this story was a little lacking in the romance department. I definitely could have used

Once again, I'm reviewing a Love Finds You that I had previously read. The first time I read this, all I had to say about it was that it was interesting. While that is a bit true this time around as well, I have to say that I was not that impressed by the story overall as well.

I found it to be extremely preachy, even for an Inspirational title. I can understand that this was set in the 1920s and some people were like that back then, but this too things a bit too far for my tastes. I didn't care

SUMMARY: The Roaring Twenties come to a very small town…Two young women visit their ailing aunt in Maiden, North Carolina, where both seek to recover fro broken romances. But one of them harbors a scandalous secret…

REVIEW: Although fairly predictable, this delightful roaring 20's novel gives a wonderful glimpse into the changing mores of the young people of that time period and how the changes led to heartache and pain for some of them. The old-fashioned storyline reminded me of Grace Livingston

The roaring twenties are more of a whimper in Maiden NC. Hestia comes to Maiden to take care of her ailing aunt. The trip also serves to get her out of town after a broken engagement which has been accompanied by battered self-esteem. Hestia's fiance broke up with her because she kept her hair long, her dresses longer and her stockings black rather than nude. Not silky black but a clunky cotton black that made her look like an old lady. When her fashionable cousin Selene comes to Maiden too, Hes ...more

Set in the 1920's, this book gave an interesting look at what life might have been like at that time, the choices women had to make, and the societal changes that were occurring. The romances portrayed were sweet, and the ending was satisfying. I enjoyed seeing the characters change and grow throughout the story, but there were times it seemed like a little bit more action would have made it even more interesting. There were good reasons, but several of the characters weren't able to go anywhere ...more

This is a love story about two ladies who are cousins who visit their bed ridden Aunt Louisa in Maiden, North Carolina. They each needed to get away from problems at home. It is 1922 and one of the cousins is very old fashioned for her age while the other is a bit of a flapper. The two of them start to form bonds and learn about one another while also beginning to learn more about faith in Jesus and true love. Each of them have a love story and it was wonderful to read! I think it definitely mad ...more

It was ok, not as good as the first in this series I read. They are written by different authors, so that has an effect (or is it affect, I can't ever remember). I got tired of them talking about the main character leaving to go back home and so nothing could happen with the boy she met. It was not resolved soon enough for me and then not enough given to it at the end. He just proposes and everything is fine in the last 2 pages of the book. Disappointing end.

What a sweet, heartwarming book!
I loved Hestia, Aunt Louisa, Selene, Artie and Booth. I also enjoyed the fact that you got 2 romances for the price of one with this book.
It was neat to read about the 1920s in this book and how differently Selene and Hestia approached things such as style and language. Selene used many phrases that I had never heard of.

I've enjoyed all of the books I've read in this series. This one started out a bit slow, but it did continue to hold my interest. I enjoyed stepping into the 1920's and examining how society was changing during that decade.

I loved this setting and time period - it was unique and interesting. I did find the plot a bit too predictable, but that's how it goes with many books.

Nice, clean story but very predictable and slow moving.

Novel set in the 1920s that illustrates both maidenly purity and second chances.
