An enchanting prequel that tells the love story of matchmaking grandparents Anna and Felty Helmuth in 1952.
Raised by her widowed father Anna Yoder can't cook or sew like the other young women in her community, though she does her best, but her tender heart has her reaching out to newly returned Felty who is something of an outcast due to his service in the Korean War. A heartwarming and humorous read that tells the story of Huckleberry Hill's favorite couple.
A delightful Christmastime romance that brought a smile to my face. I loved how Anna knows she isn't like the other girls, but she always does her best and isn't afraid to blaze her own trail, yet she is always considerate of others. I like that Felty stands up for Anna and has her back, he has learned to stand his ground for what he believes.
Overall this was such a fun read, with endearing characters. I admired Felty for being courageous and choosing to do the hard things, following the call. The side characters were well written, I especially liked Anna's brothers and her father. A heartwarming Christmas read great for fans of the series or new fans alike. Highly enjoyable!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
