Inspirational Romance | Historical
For readers who love a heartwarming romance and a rich
historical setting comes a tale of a young woman with a
heavy burden, the International Cotton Exposition, and
the pursuit of true love.
Eighteen-year-old Laurel Millard, youngest of seven
children, is expected to stay home and "take care of
Mama" by her older siblings, but Laurel has dreams of
starting her own family. Operating a silk loom at the
Atlanta Exposition will give her the chance to capture
the heart of a man wealthy enough to take care of Laurel
and any children she might bear, as well as her mother.
Langdon Rochester's parents have given him an ultimatum:
settle down with a wife or lose his family inheritance.
At the Exposition, Langdon meets Laurel. Marrying her
would satisfy his parents's command, she would look
lovely on his arm for social events, and in her besotted
state, he believes she would overlook him continuing
pursuing rowdy adventures with his unmarried buddies.
Langdon decides to woo Laurel. Willie Sharp is not well-
off and must take on an extra job at the Atlanta
Exposition as a security guard. When mischief-makers
cause trouble in the Women's Building, Willie is put in
charge of keeping the building secure. He enjoys visiting
with Laurel, who seems like the little sister he never
had, but his feelings for Laurel change to something much
deeper. Can Willie convince Laurel that he can give her
better life--even with so little to offer?
