I loved revisiting Wallin Landing. Now that all the older brothers are married and the younger siblings are grown, Beth has decided to play matchmaker for her brother, John. She begins corresponding with a mail-order bride on John's behalf--without his knowledge.
But when Dottie Tyrrell arrives things don't go as well as Beth had planned. Dottie is determined to make a better life for herself and her young son, away from the city.
John wants to help Dottie, even though he doesn't want to marry her, or anyone else for that matter. He's been burned in the past, and doesn't want to think about marriage again. But he offers her a place to stay, and he moves back in with his family.
I like how John instantly takes to Peter, he enjoys holding him stories. As John and Dottie get to know each other, they find that they have more in common than he thought, they share a passion for books and literature.
I've always liked John, he is a peacemaker, and has always been more quiet, but he knows how to tell a captivating story. I love how Dottie comes to love his quiet strength, listening ear, and gentle way with her son.
This is a great read from beginning to end, I really liked John and how he is able to quietly stand out, and is comfortable in the man that he is. Dottie and John bring out the best in each other. This was a well written book with great characters and a fast moving plot. Definitely recommend!
