Book Review: A Most Unsuitable Match by Stephanie Grace Whitson

Fannie Rousseau's sheltered life is about to come to an abrupt end. Faced with being alone, and tired of keeping up the appearance of wealth, she decides to leave it all behind on a journey to find a mysterious aunt she has never met. With only her faithful maid and friend Hannah beside her, she heads off to the wild west.
On her travels she meets up with Samuel Beck, who is in love with God and wants to tell everyone he meets about him. An unlikely friendship blossoms and maybe something more, but they are from different worlds and each brushes the possibility aside. But maybe God has bigger plans than either of them could have imagined.

I really enjoyed this story, even though it was a little slow getting into it. I have found that with this author's books in the past too. But once you get into them, it's worth the read. One of my favorite things about it was that although it has romance in it, the whole plot doesn't revolve around that aspect. In fact the main characters are not even together for a lot of the book. I loved the characters and the individual journeys they take.
Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
