My Thoughts on this book:
I enjoyed this story greatly.  Rosemary is a fixer.  She is always trying to fix the problems that present themselves to her, sometimes it gets her into hot water.  She is a fiesty young lady, who isn't afraid to express her thoughts and opinions.  She is very cautious about giving her heart to Elijah, and is crushed when life seems to hand her a blow, with a young woman showing up who claims she is Elijah's fiancee.  This book will not disappoint you, it is filled with a wonderful story after story, of how Rosemary reaches out to people, while having trouble dealing with her own hurts in her past.  Ann Shorey, is a great storyteller and you will love this book.  Wonderful storytelling, wonderful, descriptive writing.  4 stars!!
