A Love So True – Teaville Moral Society #2
Melissa Jagears

•°o•:*:•. He has a plan and a purpose for us All .•:*:• o°•

Melissa Jagears continues the enriched drama of the Teaville Moral Society.  This time the focus is on the overly tall, and extremely persnickety Evelyn Wisely who has a heart for the orphaned children of the red-light district of a small town in 1908 Kansas.  While many people believe the problems those children face are direct results of the lifestyle their mothers have “chosen”, Evelyn believes every child deserves love and care.  She will go to great lengths to do her part toward that end.  Additionally, she holds a long-kept secret buried in her heart that causes her to keep her distance from men who might indicate the slightest interest in her.
David Kingsman is the son of a wealthy, big city businessman who has been tasked with coming to Teaville to quickly sell a canning jar production company his father recently acquired, and then get back home to business and his father’s ideas for his future.  However, God seems to have other plans for David, as he continually finds his path redirected toward helping Evelyn. He is a pleasant sort, with a strong character that pushes him to do the right thing. 
I especially enjoyed old Mr. Hargrove who is over 80 years old.  His kindness was charming, and the fact he was made to feel useful again was just precious.  So many old people get ignored, and these moments in the story were endearing.
Once again, this story was filled with detail and faith.  I enjoyed it very much.
