The Flower Brides
Grace Livingston Hill
It's been a little while since I've read something by Grace Livingston Hill, and when I saw this volume of hers available- with three stories in it that I hadn't yet read- I decided to try it.
I admit I was really dragging my feet with this one. Part of the reason was that this was an ebook, which is definitely not my preference, but also, as a whole, I don't think these three stories lived up to some of the other GLH books that I've read.
I admit that it was rather difficult for me to like the main character of Marigold. She wasn't all bad, but her attitude annoyed me even though I found her character to be realistic. I guess, considering the way she was raised, her actions seemed especially unlikable?
White Orchards had some sweet moments, but the hero and heroine were separated for much of the book and some aspects of the plot seemed very familiar to me, even though I hadn't read it before. I liked the characters, though.
I received this book for free from netgalley.com in exchange for my honest review.
