Hannah believes that divine providence landed her with her own dress shop in a new town. She’s the only dressmaker in town, but she is shocked when the livery man has such disdain for women’s fashions and sometimes, it seems, her personally. One moment he deals out unfair judgment and assumptions with a growl, and the next he shows her unexpected kindness. Which is the real J.T.? And what is his problem with dressmakers and a girl wanting to look pretty? His arrogance riles her. She finds herself trying to rile him right back.
In fact, he’s kept his sister away from the trap of fashion for a long time, but when the new dressmaker befriends his sister, that all changes. And he doesn’t like it one bit. What will happen when his sister tries to catch a beau with Hannah’s help? Sparks fly all right – and lead to consequences no one could have imagined. Will Hannah and J.T. be able to close the chasm between them?
Things are not always what they seem. We must search the Scriptures for our answers to our questions and dilemmas and seek God’s answers in our prayers. Do not be quick to judge. We must be open to God’s leading as he may have a surprise or two in store for us. He certainly did for J.T. and Hannah, not to mention his sister. Bumps and potholes may get in the way, but God can work all things together for good for those in Christ Jesus.
This is the first book I’ve read by Karen Witemeyer, but she’s on my must read list now. This book was wonderful and I absolutely loved it! I even had some laugh out loud moments. Karen has a way with words that shows her characters speaking intimately with God in such a genuine and touching way. This story had many facets and all of them were woven in wonderfully. The lessons in this book are intertwined beautifully with the entertaining story, making it a delightful read. I didn’t want to put it down. My teenage daughter saw how much I was enjoying the book and she now can’t wait to read it as well. Congratulations, Karen, on a wonderful book!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
After growing up in California, Karen moved to Texas to attend Abilene Christian University where she earned bachelor and master's degrees in Psychology. It was also there that she met and married her own Texas hero. He roped her in good, for she has lived in Texas ever since. In fact, she fell so in love with this rugged land of sweeping sunsets and enduring pioneer spirit, that she incorporates it into the pages of her novels, setting her stories in the small towns of a state that burgeoned into greatness in the mid- to late1800s.
In January, 2009, Karen signed a contract with Bethany House Publishers for three inspirational historical romance novels, and she is thrilled to announce that her first book, A TAILOR-MADE BRIDE will be released in June 2010.
