A Most Unsuitable Match

This was a lovely story. I don't read many stories set in this era, but when I do read them I always end up enjoying them. This was my first Stephanie Grace Whitson and I really enjoyed her style! It wasn't very fast, but was easy-going, full of plot, and had some deep themes. Very interesting and quite delightful! 
This book hosts a wide variety of characters of all different social classes and situations. I found that I (and a few other people I've discussed the book with as well) related better to and was drawn more to the hero of the story, rather than the heroine; Fannie was great! but a bit more shallow than Samuel; he seemed more real somehow, if that makes sense. But, like I said, Fannie was also great and I liked her even more by the end. 
There were lots of twists and turns in this story and a few times I caught myself wondering "is this going to end up how I'm thinking? Or is it all going to change on me?!" (I will say, I was very satisfied with the ending - even if it was slightly rushed.)
Rich, clean, and inspiring, A Most Unsuitable Match is actually quite a catch for all historical fiction lovers. I highly recommend it, and am looking forward to reading more from this author.



  1. Hi, I'm Grace. Just found your blog, and I've liked what I read. :-)

    I've read one book by this author, "A Claim of Her Own," but it was a western. Love the cover on this one- will have to put it on my TBR list. :-)

    Have a lovely day!
