I think I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series and I really liked that one as well! Kathleen Fuller's second book in her Hearts of Middlefield series, "An Honest Love" really focuses on the lives of 4 individuals - 2 couples on the journey of friendship growing into love.
The main characters of her first novel in this series play a minor role, so it is nice to read the first book as you can see how this family is changing and growing.
Elizabeth is at that age when she should becoming a more serious adult and interested in becoming a homemaker and mom. Elizabeth feels as if she is not prepared or as competent as she should be.

Join these two on their journey of friendship.
