My Review How Do I Love Thee by Nancy Moser

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

She dreams of love for others but never for herself...

Elizabeth Barrett is a published poet--and a virtual prisoner in her own home. Blind family loyalty ties her to a tyrannical father who forbids any of his children to marry. Bedridden by chronic illness, she has resigned herself to simply existing. That is, until the letter arrives...

"I love your verses with all my heart," writes Robert Browning, an admiring fellow poet. As friendly correspondence gives way to something more, Elizabeth discovers that Robert's love is not for her poetry alone. Might God grant her more than mere existence? And will she risk defying her father in pursuit of true happiness?

My Review: Until reading this novel I didn't know much about Elizabeth Barrett Browning. This is a beautifully written book. Nancy Moser does a great job of taking truth and combining it with creative license to write a book that you just can't put down, and you are so glad you read. I highly recommend this book and I give it a lighthouse and shine a light on it for lighting your path to God.
