Review: Courting Morrow Little
What I loved about this book: I loved the length of this book. There were a number of places that the author could have ended the story however she chose to give it more depth and went on. It never lost my interest and the story flowed nearly effortlessly as it was woven. I loved the sense of reality this book held. It was very believable and it was obvious that Laura did her research on writing this book.
What I didn't like about this book: Morrow Little is depicted as a subdued, almost breakable little woman. I thought her character itself could have been more believable. Although it held the ring of authenticity as women were dependant on the male's in their lives, she just sits back as her life is decided for her. I think it would have been more believable if she had at least shown some anger or persuasion. Also, the love story between Morrow and "Red Shirt" is a little bit cliche. I think it could have been developed more effectively.
I would recommend Courting Morrow Little to anyone interested in historical fiction or romance in particular. It is a great book for a gift or just to read on a rainy day.
