Blessing Review

An impetuous love swept Blessing Brightman away from the Quaker community, into the highest ranks of Cincinnati society. But behind the glitter of ballroom and parlor, her spirit slowly eroded in an increasingly dangerous marriage. Widowed young, determined never to lose her independence again, Blessing reclaimed her faith and vowed to use her influence to fight for women’s rights and abolition.

Gerard Ramsay, scion of a wealthy Boston family, arrives in Cincinnati hoping to escape his father’s clutches with a strategy that will gain him independence. His plan is soon complicated, however, by the enchanting widow. Never before has a woman spoken as if she’s his equal―or challenged him to consider the lives of others.

In a city nearly ablaze with racial tensions quickly dividing the country, can two people worlds apart possibly find common ground?

Blessing is the second book in Lyn Cote's Quaker Bride series. I really enjoyed Blessings character but I have to be honest, it took me awhile to warm up to Gerard's character. It wasn't until close to the very end that I started to like him. After having finished this book I now like the pairing and felt that this book had a good ending, but while reading it I just kept waiting for Gerard's to become someone that I felt Blessing deserved. It did happen but I just wish it had happened a little sooner. Other than that I really enjoyed Blessing and can't wait to get to know her sister! (The next book if I'm not mistaken) 

4.5 out of 5. 

 I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.
