In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and one is more than he seems.

In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. As the depth, passion, and sacrifice of love is revealed to Susannah, she begins to question the rules and regulations of her childhood faith. In a community where grace is unknown, what price will she pay for embracing love?

This book is well written and interesting but a little more grim than most of Mitchell's work. Also, the unhappy ending surprised and disappointed me.

this book is incredible!!!!! such suspense. I did have a little trouble figuring out who each character was.

When I first started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The characters and the plot line were very intriguing, especially all the tidbits about the puritan lifestyle. However, as I got closer to the end of the novel, I had to take a break because it was not going at all like I wanted it to. But now that I finished the novel, I have to say I actually liked the ending. It added depth and intrigue that wouldn't have been there if the ending had been predictable. Highly recommend.

I liked this book. I wish the ending would have been different, but it was refreshing to see it not be predictable. A good book to understand the Puritan thinking.
