Both of the main characters, Charlotte Beck and Alex Hambly, are extremely stubborn people, a trait that does not serve either of them well when they are faced with desperate situations. Charlotte wishes to go to college and become a businesswoman, something rare in the 1800’s. Alex finds his family in desperate financial trouble after his father’s death. Charlotte’s father offers them a solution to their problems. He will fund and allow Charlotte to go to college, as well as providing Alex the money his family needs and some lucrative business deals, if they agree to marriage after she is finished with college.
They reluctantly agree to this arrangement, but plan to have the marriage annulled as soon as possible. Alex, however, realizes that God would want him to honor his vows, and refuses to back out of the marriage. Charlotte is devastated, and the two are left to resolve the issue.
The book definitely has a great story line, and I found it quite amusing in many places. I recommend it to anyone ready for a wonderful tale!
