When Love Calls - A Review

Hannah Gregory's life changes drastically when her parents die. She drops out of law school and goes to work full time in order to provide for her sisters. When handsome young lawyer, Lincoln Cole, delivers devastating news about a foreclosure on the farm, Hannah vows to make sure that her sisters never want for anything and to have nothing to do with Lincoln. For a rule breaker like Hannah, when she gets a job as a telephone operator - where strict adherence to the rules is mandatory - her sisters are shocked. And as much as Hannah wants to have nothing to do with Lincoln Cole, he keeps showing up, determined to show her that he's not the enemy. Will Hannah learn to trust and let go of being in control?

This the first book I've ever read by Seilstad and I found it to be delightful. It was humorous at times, yet the characters felt real to me. One of my favorite scenes was when Hannah the rule breaker pulls Lincoln into a pond. I laughed so hard at that scene. I found that the struggle Hannah went through to accept help and rely on others to be a very struggle. I know it's something that I've had to learn to accept as well at times in my life. I also loved how the one instance in which Hannah maybe should have said something, she didn't because she wasn't sure and she didn't want to falsely accuse someone.

I found this book to be a light-heart fast read. It took me only a couple of days to read it as I was reading it mostly in the evenings. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a light read.

I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

I'm still tweaking things on the blog signature. The one below is take 2. I changed the color of the font a little. I'd really appreciate your feedback regarding the way it looks.
