A Marriage in Middlebury is a beautifully written story of small town, USA and Charlotte Rose Hill. While she is the center character in Middlebury, there are many other important characters whose lives intertwine with Charlotte's. In the course of a very short time, Charlotte is confronted by her past and her first love, is offered an amazing opportunity for her business and makes a new friend or two. It's a sweet story with some twists and turns. I really enjoyed A Marriage in Middlebury! I would definitely reccommend this book to any lover of contemporary fiction, contemporary fiction or Christian Fiction.
About the Book:
One decision changed both their lives . . . but will love win in the end? Charlotte Rose Hill enjoys a comfortable life serving up country delicacies, uniquely blended teas, and matchmaking advice for her quirky, devoted customers. The only thing lacking is someone to share it with. At eighteen she denied Sam Wilder’s marriage proposal after his family convinced her to walk away from their relationship. They both moved on . . . or so she thought. When Sam walks back into her life more than a decade later, Charlotte is surprised that her heart still quickens. But is it because of his presence? Or because of the presence of Sam’s new fiancée? A second chance at love doesn’t happen often, but their past may keep them apart. Is it too late for Sam and Charlotte?
