Great continuation of first book in series Oct 23, 2002
This book continues the story of the courtship between Julia Hollis and Vicar Andrew Phelps. Andrew originally moved to Gresham to get his oldest daughter, Elizabeth, away from the man she loved in London when they learned that he was unfaithful to her. Elizabeth is now seeing a young curate in a nearby village when the other man finds her again - he appears to have changed his ways and asks her forgiveness, and also takes on the position of schoolmaster in Gresham. You will also enjoy the courtships of other locals, including bossy Mrs. Kingston and the obnoxious lord who owns the cheese factory.
Great series to read Jul 26, 2002
This series is a lot of fun to read and full of interesting characters and their relationships. At first it was hard to keep track of so many people, but I got hooked on the village of Gresham and its people. Biblical truths and interesing people had me going back for more. I just wish there were 10 books in this series so that I would have more to look forward to. I really enjoyed these books very much!
A wonderful book! Nov 27, 2001
I highly recommend this book. It is really good. I enjoy all of Lawana Blackwell's books very much. The stories are always entertaining and full of love. They are all very decent stories and very enjoyable to read.
another lovely visit to Gresham Jul 1, 2001
At the end of book one, Julia and Andrew have decided to wait for several months before their wedding. Book two deals with the time period of their engagement. Quite a lot happens in this few months: both Laurel Phelps and Philip Hollis are now old enough to attend boarding school, a mysterious stranger and his young son come to Gresham, the prickly Mrs. Kingston finds herself being courted by none other than the Squire himself, and Mercy Sanders dreams of a way out of her impoverished and underappreciated lifestyle. Elizabeth Phelps, declaring herself finally over her broken heart from book one, concentrates on her relationship with Paul Treves, knowing that it will lead to marriage. But as their relationship progresses, so do Elizabeth's doubts. She really is not sure if she loves him as a betrothed wife should, and she seeks out the advice of her future stepmother. While Elizabeth is still struggling with her questions about her future with Paul, an unexpected visitor comes to Gresham. Will he be able to win Elizabeth's heart, and, more important, to convince the Vicar that he is worthy of her attention? Will Philip ever be able to adjust to the cruel taunts and pranks played by the older boys at boarding school? Will the mysterious Mr. Langford let down his guard to the good people of Gresham and be able to become a true father to young Thomas? Does the Lord really have a husband in mind for Mercy? Will Mrs. Kingston let the Squire break through her barriers and be able to love again? Once again, Blackwell has portrayed a lively village full of romance, family values, and the assurance that God sees his flock through everything in The Courtship of the Vicar's Daughter. This was a wonderful additon to the series, and I am looking forward to my next visit to Gresham.
Fairly Enjoyable Jan 27, 2001
This is not my favorite novel to read, although Lawana Blackwell has done a well job weaving several main characters lives and love stories into one main story. It is interesting how they all know each other and some help the others out. Reading this novel made me feel as if I were in Gresham myself.
