Item description for The Rescue (The English Garden Series #2) by Lori Wick...
Overview (book 2 in the English Garden Series)
When Anne Gardiner slips from a ladder into the arms of a handsome stranger, her unstable father, Colonel Gardiner, deems the innocent embrace cause for immediate marriage. Anne quickly agrees while the flustered Robert Weston stammers in amazement.
At first believing he's been taken by charlatans, Weston eventually sees that the "marriage" was performed for the Colonel's sake and that Anne had as little choice in the matter as he did. His feelings change completely when he learns that she's sacrificed her own reputation to protect his name. Despite their rocky beginning, Weston finds himself drawn to Anne. And Anne is not immune to the kindness he directs her way.
Weston's heart has told him that love is overrated. Anne has survived on her own for many years. Will they trust God as they step into a new relationship? Will they recognize love when it finally reaches them?

Reviews - What do customers think about The Rescue (The English Garden Series #2)?
Wow! Jan 10, 2006
A bit heavy, sad, but works out to make it a good read. The relationship between the main characters goes from strained, to good, to painful, and back to where God wanted it from the start. It's a wonderfully written book.
Really enjoyable! Nov 17, 2005
I am a big fan of stories from this era, and I really enjoyed all four books in this series. I live in reality... I don't need a story to further dwell on that. I enjoy that Lori's books are so ideal, so perfect. I don't mind that the characters aren't "believeable" as some have criticized. That's exactly why I read them! It's fun to escape. And yet in the story there are neat twists and turns. They aren't completey predictable. I recommend this book highly. And I enjoy that the characters you meet as the series goes along are main characters in later books. That is a very neat aspect. I do recommend reading the books in order. I skipped this one book 2 because I didn't own it and read it last. I wish I hadn't. It isn't necessary, but I think you miss out when those characters pop up in the later books. The story line in this one is really neat. I enjoyed it a lot.
Awesome! Oct 26, 2005
I thought that "The Rescue" was an entertaining book. It mixes humor with Godly advice. As the story unfolds, it gets better page by page. I haven't read the first book of the English Garden series, but I hope that I will be able to. Although I enjoyed this book, I don't think it was the best book I've read by Lori Wick. My favorite book she has written is "Sophie's Heart". I enjoy reading Christian romance books and Lori Wick is one of my favorite authors.
Wonderful Apr 14, 2004
This is one of those books that as soon as you pick it up you won't put it down until you've turned the last page. You don't have to wait long until you fall completely in love with both Anne and Weston. Like a true English gentleman, Weston offers to marry Anne after he finds out that because of his rash actions Anne's reputation has suffered. I eagerly anticipated each new development in their marriage. I loved all of the English Garden Series, but this one is by far my favorite!!
Not so sure of this book Feb 10, 2004
Well, I really cannot say that I have finished reading the book. I will have to do so. But, I do have to say that I was a bit dissapointed. Personally, I believe that Wick's best work is in a historical western setting. This book seems nice, but I can't help but be cynical about the environment. The gossipers are believeable, but not the christian people. How could there be so many? If so, their views of christianity are different that what ours are. Since when does the aristocracy care about God on a personal level? Those who were religious where strict in their discipline. Plus, a pastor? They had vicars back then. I find it a bit historically inacurate. I suppose I should not criticize, I mean after all, it is fiction. What can I expect right? I do have to say that I like Wick, but not so much in this series. I'll have to read more to form an exact opinion.
