“You all right? his eyes asked.
I’m all right, hers answered.”
– LaVyrle Spencer, Morning Glory
On a recent weekend away to Bath me and my boyfriend popped into a second-hand bookshop, a small shop with shelves stacked high with hundreds of different genres of books.
My favourite types of books are romance novels, so it will come as no surprise that my boyfriend ended up buying me Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer.
The book is about ex-con Will Parker who answers the ad of Elly, a pregnant widow looking for a husband. As Will helps Elly work on her homestead and care for her young children, they develop mutual respect and love.
This is what I call historical romance. It’s realistic, down to earth and absolutely beautiful. It’s a definite must read!
