While Love Stirs by Lorna Seilstad

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Take one lovely young woman.
Add two ambitious young men.
Stir . . . and stand back.


As a graduate of Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery, Charlotte Gregory is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove. And she certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the kindhearted Lewis Mathis to entertain at her lectures.

Lewis encourages Charlotte's work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Follow the second Gregory sister as she looks for true love and makes her way in a rapidly changing world in this breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep you guessing.

My Take:

Lorna has stirred up another sweet yet snarky book that is perfect for summer! Charlotte drives Joel crazy. As a graduate of Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery she believes she has the best menu for patients recovering, Joel takes notice of this after she wins the cooking contest put on by the company of the latest invention, a gas stove. Charlotte enjoys the opportunity to travel, cook, and lecture. What she really wants is to bring change to hospital food, yet Dr. Joel Brooks is reluctant to agree.
Joel and Charlotte are fire and oil, be careful not to light a match around them or they will explode!
Lorna's books are fun, and full of humorous banter, along with traveling back in time. I know I will enjoy every minute spent reading one of Lorna's books and this one did not disappoint. Highly recommended!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

(No image available) Eva Gibson is the author of twenty books, including A Stitch and a Prayer, the latest release in the Quilts of Love series from Abingdon Fiction. She currently teaches Writing Your Life Story classes for Portland Community College and is an active member of Oregon Christian Writers. She has lived most of her life on the family farm in Wilsonville, Oregon, which is the setting for her novel.

ABOUT THE BOOK

After her fiancĂ© returns from the Klondike gold rush in 1897, Florence Harms sets about building a new life in her new marriage—even though the lingering effects of illness have left her weak and vulnerable. She and her young husband, Will, work tirelessly to clear the land around their Northwest cabin, content with their modest life. But then a stranger comes knocking and Florence suddenly senses a restlessness in Will’s spirit that she had never seen before. When he leaves her with only a note that tells her he will return before their baby’s birth, she is devastated, and the illness that stiffened her joints returns. Counting the days until Will walks back through her door, Florence busies herself with a Tree of Life quilt displaying a map of the farm they call home. Doubts claw at her heart as Florence struggles to believe Will’s promise to return to her. Will her labor of love—and faith in God—sustain her as she waits to see her beloved once again?
