5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL WINNER! 5 Dec 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is great. Warm, real characters and humorous situations. Henry Lee is a great, sexy hero, and Hannah is a strong heroine, a wonderful blend of innocence and sensuality. Strong supporting characters as well. If you like sweet, uplifting romance, this is one of the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, gentle, old fashioned. Just wonderful for me. 26 April 2008
By J. Lesley - Published on Amazon.com
I've read my copy of this book so many times that the cover is beginning to show obvious signs of wear. Just as a curiosity I came here to the book page to read the reviewes posted and could not believe that there were none. Wow, what a shame.

Pamela Morsi writes the most interesting plots with characters that you can get to know and love. This book doesn't have any dates telling when it took place but people still travel on horseback and in wagons so a good estimation would be the late 1800's, and it is situated in Oklahoma.

Hannah May Bunch is a preachers daughter, 26 years old and a spinster. When her mother became ill with cancer, Hannah, though still a child, stepped in and took over the raising of her four siblings and the running of the house. These duties continued after her mother died and so Hannah was always too busy to worry about getting married. Besides, she is not tiny, not fragile and not beautiful. Now her father has remarried, her three brothers have all married, and her sister is sixteen. Hannah realizes that it is time for her to find a man of her own and to establish her own home. She has just the man in mind and even though she doesn't love him, and he seems too shy to begin courting her, she knows that she would be the best wife he could ever want. Hannah comes up with a plan straight out of the Bible for helping Will Sample ask that special question. Now all she has to do is execute it.

Henry Lee Watson is a moonshiner. He makes the best moonshine in this part of the state and he is proud of his accomplishments. So what if the "good" folks of Plainview don't really accept him because his mother was a half-breed who was never married to the man she lived with. They certainly come to him when they want something special to drink and he is making plenty of money. He is invited by Preacher Bunch to come help at the building of the new church because Henry Lee is an excellent carpenter. His skills will be needed for the finishing touches of the new church. He didn't know that helping out the preacher would lead his life down a path he never envisioned.

A true romance, this book places all its focus on the interactions of Hannah and Henry Lee and the community in which they live. Each and every character is completely and fully drawn. Hannah isn't the first person to learn that forcing the Bible to say what you want it to say can have totally unforseen results. Henry Lee isn't the first man to find himself in an awkward situation with a life changing decision to be made. Pamela Morsi writes his character with such sweetness and with the actions of a true gentleman so that we forget the way he makes his living. And she manages to have a book based on one of my pet peeves (the big misunderstanding) be not only interesting but totally realistic. I can certainly imagine two people getting themselves into this kind of tangle just because each assummes they know what the other is thinking.

A book which explores right and wrong. Good versus bad. Honor over convenience. I just love reading this story. Don't pick up this book expecting explicit sexual content, you won't find it here. What you will find is two people caught in a situation which makes them work with and for each other in order to find love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a Good Story. 26 Jun 2013
By Bernadette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hannah was a spinster, who tried to trick a spinsterous male into a compromising situation so he'd marry her. Her trick backfired and she found herself stuck with the local moonshiner instead.

She did not know that Henry Lee made booze for a living, which was against the law and her beliefs, so after their forced wedding, she tries everything she can think of to get him to fall in love with her, but her efforts don't seem to work.

A typical romance, he does come to care for her, but he has a few negative thoughts about her too, and this is what keeps them apart.

I liked this book because it was true to life, and there were no sudden life changing realizations, such as the moonshiner suddenly condemning booze and going off half-cocked over the sins of it all.

This was just a good story.
