I was recently given the Bethany House published book, An Unlikely Suitor, for the purpose of reviewing. This historical Christian fiction novel by Nancy Moser, drew me in right away with the beautiful and intriguing artwork on the front cover. Although 376 pages in length, I was never bored or in a hurry to finish the story. It was a beautiful weaving together of the story of three young women in New York City, the summer of 1895. They were of two different classes of society, with three very different personalities. In the end, all three of them find the love of their lives, although not the obvious choices you would imagine!
Two of the girls are of Italian immigrant families...sisters. They and their mother are seamstresses by trade. I found the description of their sewing, designing hats and dresses, and fitting them on their clients to be fascinating.
I would highly recommend this captivating story, full of redeeming value. You will be whisked away to another time and place. And you will be encouraged and inspired in your own faith journey with Christ.
