A Suitor For Jenny by Margaret Brownley
As part of Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program, I received A Suitor For Jenny by Margaret Brownley. This was what I would consider a christian romance. You have the love story (several actually), as well as people discovering that they need God in their lives. The story was kind of sweet, but it was very sappy. I will admit that as a teenager I read a lot of christian romance novels, and I still read them when I am pregnant, but I think that I have mostly outgrown the genre. The story was well written, and the characters were fun. It is set in the late 1800's in Texas. After their parents died Jenny felt like she needed to take care of her two younger sisters. She makes some mistakes and feels that she cannot hope for marriage, but is determined to find suitable husbands for her sisters. It is a safe romance, nothing risque. I would give it 2.5/5 stars.
