On My Nightstand - Fairer Than Morning by Rosslyn Elliott
Ann Miller takes her responsibilities for her father and young sisters to heart. Every time he embarks on a preaching journey, she's tormented by fears for his safety. Losing one parent is bad enough, but the thought of anything happening to him is too awful to contemplate.
Several young men come into her life, all captivated by her character, beauty, and grace. Her father wants her to choose a husband, so she'll have security and a family. Yet, something holds her back. Besides the precious children she's raised almost from birth, Ann knows this decision could affect the course of her entire life.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. Fellow-blogger, Rosslyn Elliott, shared her journey to publication with us. Her skillful use of setting and characterization kept me enthralled. When I could read only for short stretches, the frustration grated on me. How dare anything interrupt this tale!
Rosslyn has a bright future as an author. Perhaps the true test of an author is whether or not they leave you wanting more. In this case, I want more. :)
