Fannie Rousseau is withal reeling from her mother’s expiry when she discovers letters hidden amidst her mother’s things—letters from her mother’s twin sister, a adult woman Fannie didn’t know existed. Once she reads the letters, Fannie longs to know her Aunt Edith, who lives inwards the Montana Territory. On the spur of the moment, Fannie too her maid, Hannah, board a steamboat boundary for Montana.
Sam Beck is desperate to honor his sister. The in conclusion anyone heard of her, she was headed northward inwards the society of an Army man. Sam gets a project on a steamboat inwards central for passage to Fort Rice, his sister’s rumored destination. As Sam gets to know Fannie on too off the steamboat, he finds himself attracted to her, but how could he e’er last a hubby to such a refined lady?
My take: I actually wanted to similar this book. The writer lives inwards Nebraska, too I similar supporting my beau Nebraskans whenever I can. But I merely didn’t relish reading it. The mass is written well—I cause got no complaints there—but I could non empathise why Fannie too Sam savage for each other. Their attraction didn’t boundary off the page, too piece I knew they would cease upwards together, I didn’t care. Late inwards the book, Fannie met a widower too his boy piece Sam was off searching for his sis too Fannie’s aunt. The human relationship betwixt Fannie too the widower I understood—even rooted for—but, alas, that wasn’t the human relationship that was meant to be! (And I form of felt similar it was a cop out to tack on a few paragraphs inwards the epilogue to allow the reader know the widower did cease upwards happy. I cared to a greater extent than most him equally a grapheme than I did most Sam, too hence I would cause got appreciated reading most how his happy ending came to be.)
While the primary romantic human relationship inwards the mass savage apartment for me, I did relish Fannie’s journeying from helpless rich daughter to competent, confident woman. Around page 200, the even out actually picked up, too I started reading amongst much to a greater extent than interest. There was fifty-fifty a fabulous plot twist close the cease of the even out that I didn’t encounter coming (though inwards retrospect, I actually should have).
Fans of historical fiction (admittedly, I’m to a greater extent than of a contemporary daughter amongst a few exceptions) volition in all probability appreciate this mass to a greater extent than than I did.
I give A Most Unsuitable Match 3 out of five stars.
