Thomas Hasken, was on his way UP. He was a gifted and talented, artist, whose painting had caught the eyes of many. Including Mr. Astor of the Astor's of New York.

One thing was missing from his life however. A wife. Thomas was not married, and was ready to marry and settle into a life of caring for a wife. Mr Astor all but commanded him to find a wife, telling him that love and a good wife, would inspire him to greater heights in his art career.

But how? He had no prospects. He didn't date anyone, nor know anyone he was interested in dating. A couple, who were newlyweds, had a suggestion. Place an ad for a wife. That was how they had met and married, and it was most successful for them. So he did, with their help and guidance.

Sara McGee was a young woman, living on the streets of New York City. Her benefactress Mrs. Whitaker, answered Thomas' ad for Sara. Describing Sara in glowing terms, and leaving out some facts, she had all but convinced Thomas, just through her letters that Sara was the perfect bride for him.

Sara arrives and to Thomas' dismay, it is easy to see that this young lady, lacks much in her training. He is dismayed at the turn of events. Add in a beautiful socialite, from Boston, the cousin, of his close friend's wife. A socialite who seems to be totally smitten with him, a woman who is polished and skilled in all the social graces. A tangled web is what Thomas now has. A web that is leaving him uninspired to paint, and very confused.

Watch lovely Sara blossom into a women, sure of herself, and developed into a vision of beauty. Follow along as Lauralee brings us a story of love, overcoming and faith. A lovely written story, one to share with friends. 295 pages $12.99 US
