Hill Country Courtship by Laurie Kingery

My review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, Hill Country Courtship. This book is one of the Brides of Simpson Creek Series. I enjoy Laurie's books; they are well written, heartwarming, and full of faith. I know you will enjoy reading this book.

Maude Harkey is a spinster. She has resigned herself to the fact that she will never have a home or family. Her father died recently; she had to give up her home to the doctor that came to take his place. Now Maude helped with the boarding house and would probably own it one day. The spinsters club had a party where a Scottish man asked her to come and be a companion to his mother, Maude refused. A few nights later a young girl came to the boarding house looking for her boyfriend who was a regular traveling salesman. Maude helped deliver her child but she later died, now Maude needed a way to care for the baby girl so she agrees to take the companion position if she can bring the baby and her nurse.

Jonas MacLaren and his mother fled from Scotland and had now settled out side of Simpson Creek. His mother is a cantankerous woman and has gone through a number of companions, now the housekeeper is threatening to quit if he didn't find someone to care for his mother. When he meets Maude he knows she will be perfect, he's not about to take no for an answer so when he returns and she agrees but with stipulations, he takes her home with him.

A journey of several headstrong people all with there own agendas. This story is humorous, adventurous, and will touch your heart. God had a plan and even though they had given up hope God made a way. God always has a plan if you can just trust Him and let him be God.
