I'm old. I know. But as I entered the world of Elinor and Maxim I thought of the classic movies of the 1930s and 1940s. I pictured Maxim as Errol Flynn and Olivia DeHaviland as Elinor. Can't you?
Maxim makes me swoon with his love and devotion for Elinor. Elinor couldn't do any better if she selected Maxim as her husband. So what's stopping her? The expectations and restraints in her society are dictating the choices she can make.
Have you ever made a decision that goes against everything you were taught or told? Did it turn out well?
Jody Hedlund has written another book that entertains and gives us something to think about.
I received a complementary copy of this book from the author. My opinions are my own.
Jody Hedlund is the author of over thirty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award.
Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).
When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.
