Table For One by Georgiana Daniels

Lucy Brocklehurst is a looking for a good Christian man, but only the new handsome youth pastor will do. Unfortunately, the ratio of single women to men is 7:1 and Lucy isn’t the only one interested. As she throws herself in the youth pastor’s path, she finds herself in one embarrassing situation after another. Fortunately, kind-hearted Edgar Flowers is there to pick her up when she falls, and soon, love blossoms. Their only obstacle is Edgar’s newly widowed mother who will do anything to keep her son’s attention.

I have to admit, I had tears in my eyes a couple of times while reading this charming story of love and forgiveness! Lucy is a loveable character, and is easy to relate to as she struggles to give her life over to God and trust His plan for her life. I love that this book inspired me to turn to the Bible more as Lucy’s lessons became my own.

Occasionally self centered and prone to pity parties, Lucy comes close to being annoying once or twice. Fortunately she has her best friend and roommate, Dinah to remind her of what’s really important. Poor Lucy opens herself up to one problem after another until she discovers where her solutions lie.

Edgar and Lucy’s old fashioned romance is wonderful to witness. As Lucy grows spiritually, I felt myself growing along with her. The trials and tribulations they go through as they struggle to figure out how to make a life for themselves and keep Edgar’s mother happy had me cringing at the reality of it and keeping my fingers crossed for a happy ending! Lucy really was between a rock and a hard place. Stand up for herself to her future mother in law and risk insulting her and losing the man of her dreams, or grin and bear it hopes that she will grow to accept her.

Whether you’re single, or married, TABLE FOR ONE is a sweet story that will encourage your heart.
