I have quite a few books on my kindle, and too many times I pass over the kindle to read the latest book that I’ve received. This time I had no book at work on my lunch hour and opted to start a book. My book of choice was “When Love Calls” by Lorna Seilstad.
It’s about a young woman who is in the process of being evicted from her homestead with her two younger sisters. Their parents died earlier from influenza, so Hannah drops out of law school to return home to care for her sisters.
The book starts off with Hannah not following the rules set by the grocery owner, and the trouble that ensues. She knows she needs to find work, but it’s not until she and her sisters are evicted from their home by a young lawyer that she is forced to provide for her family.
She finds work as a potential Hello Girl, while at the same time meeting back up with the lawyer who was involved in evicting them from their home.
The book in all was quite enjoyable to read. There were little nuances that bothered me, but it wasn’t enough to deter me from reading the book. I liked her spunkiness and I liked Lincoln. I kinda wish I had been able to get to know Rosie a little more, but just the little bit I did get to know of her was helpful.
For me, this book was an introduction to a new author for me. I will definitely be reading more books by Lorna in the future.
