Love's First Bloom by Delia Parr
Ruth is taken in by a couple who also help Reverend Livingstone with caring for the special ladies who have been saved. While living in their home in Tom's River, New Jersey, she meets Jake Spencer who appears to be a man with an injured back, but who is in fact a newspaper reporter looking for her. Love blooms between the two, but neither of them know all the facts about the other. As pressures mount from many sources, it appears that Ruth and Jake may not be able to be together.
I really enjoyed this story and recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romance type stories. The book is well written and the story unfolds nicely and leads to a very sweet ending.
This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishers to read and review.
