Gina Welborn wrote a book about marriage, a masterpiece marriage. After reading the book, I believe that the title hints a message that when God is orchestrating your true love story, it results in a marriage that is a true masterpiece! :) Here's what I think of the author's book:
Masterpiece Marriage is a delightful story about finding true love when you least expect it, exactly when you need it.
The story’s leading lady is Miss Mary Varrs, a single woman from Europe who is visiting and lodging in a home on the East Coast of the United States of America because of the soil of the Eastern Shore. According to Mary, the soil there “enjoys the agricultural advantages of a mild climate, abundant rainfall, and a long growing season” which is just what Miss Mary whose passion is studying the growth pattern of her tomato seedlings, needs.
But her studies are interrupted by a dashing gentleman by the name of Zenus Dane who at first is repelled then intrigued by the mannerisms of ever so proper and elegant Miss Mary. As the story progresses, the reader is in for laughter, sweet scenarios and moments that make you hold your breath in anticipation for what happens next.
The author, Gina Welborn, knows how to weave a beautiful story of romance matched with reality of a historical time. The reader is not likely to get bored because even when they’re tempted to speed read, the characters, plot and engaging dialogue will draw the bored or hurried reader right back into the vivid action and heart of the story.
After reading Masterpiece Marriage, the reader may want to read another one of Welborn’s books because by the end of this book you want more from this talented author whose characters in this story are not only likeable but flawed and wonderful.
If there was a soundtrack for the love story between Miss Mary and Mr. Zenus Dane, I’d say perhaps the popular love song, “If You Asked Me To” by Celine Dion is best suited to portray the inner thoughts of these two characters. Clearly, I enjoyed reading this book and recommend it to all who need their hope of finding true love rekindled.
