J.T. Tucker, has worked hard all his life, his mother abandoned he and his sister and father as a child, and his dad died when he was a young teen, and he worked hard to keep food on the table for he and his sister.  He helps people all the time, so when a new single woman comes to town, he is surprised by his adverse reaction to her. 
Hannah Richards is a beautiful, talented dressmaker.  She is resourceful and is not a helpless female.  Given the shop by a previous client, she is determined to make a success of her dressmaking business.  Highly attracted to J. T. Tucker, she finds herself confused and often angry at his comments about her business.  A giving spirit, and a heart ready to befriend and love others, Hannah reaches out to others in the community, including J. T.'s sister Cordelia, and become fast friends with her.  Teaching her neighbor's daughter to sew, and befriending a smelly old man, J. T. begins to wonder if his conclusions about Miss Hannah Richards are off mark.
A beautiful story set in the late 1800's, this book will really keep your interest.  This story just flows and is wonderfully written.  Most definitely a keeper for your permanent library.  348 pages $14.99 US 5 stars
