Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

An impetuous love swept Blessing Brightman away from the Quaker community, into the highest ranks of Cincinnati society. But behind the glitter of ballroom and parlor, her spirit slowly eroded in an increasingly dangerous marriage. Widowed young, determined never to lose her independence again, Blessing reclaimed her faith and vowed to use her influence to fight for women’s rights and abolition.

Gerard Ramsay, scion of a wealthy Boston family, arrives in Cincinnati hoping to escape his father’s clutches with a strategy that will gain him independence. His plan is soon complicated, however, by the enchanting widow. Never before has a woman spoken as if she’s his equal—or challenged him to consider the lives of others.

In a city nearly ablaze with racial tensions quickly dividing the country, can two people worlds apart possibly find common ground?

Having read "Honor," book one of the Quaker Bride series by Lyn Cote, I was very excited to find "Blessing." Blessing is the Quaker daughter of Honor and Samuel, who fell head-over-heels in love with a high society Cincinnati brewer. Marrying against her family's wishes and that of the church, Blessing learns some very hard lessons and gains a formidable enemy as she rescues prostitutes, their unwanted children, and escaped slaves.

Pompous, self-righteous, "keep women in their place" Gerard meets Blessing when he follows his cousin, Stoddard, and tries to prevent Stoddard from marrying another woman suffragette.In keeping tabs on Stoddard and Tippy, Gerard is often thrown into Blessing's company. Gerard can't abide Blessing's unconventional ways, but when the hard times come, he can't keep himself from aiding Blessing and protecting her.To complicate matters, one of Gerard's goals is to build a racetrack in Cincinnati, diametrically opposed to everything Blessing stands for. Which appetites will Gerard feed, and can he and Blessing hope to find common ground?

I very much liked this book. With inclusions of the underground railroad; the difficulties of free blacks around 1850; the women's rights movement; and the double standard society held for gentlemen as opposed to women; this book is chock full of exciting history!! There were a few times things slowed as characters thought more than acted, but overall, this is a very satisfying portrayal of the upheaval of the times. Kudos to Lyn for the historical notes afterwards. This book could be read alone, but is sweeter when it follows its predecessor.

Ever since reading Honor last year, I have been eagerly waiting for the chance to read Lyn Cote’s next Quaker Brides book, Blessing. In this second novel, Cote uses Blessing Brightman (the daughter of Honor and Samuel) as one of the main character to continue highlighting prominent social issues of the mid-1800s, including the abolition of slavery and women’s suffrage. Blessing proves to be an independent, determined and forthright character, willing to face challenges as they come and providing Gerard Ramsay, the other main character, with a few entertaining challenges of his own. Filled with drama, suspense and romance, Blessing provides its readers with an excellent and enjoyable historical read and I recommend it to fans of the genre - especially to those who enjoyed Honor.

Thanks to Tyndale BlogNetwork, I received a copy of Blessing and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.

After being wooed by a high-ranking member of Cincinnati society, Blessing Brightman leaves her family and beliefs behind to marry. Widowed young and determine to never to give up herself in such a way again, Blessing reclaims her faith and vows to use her wealth and influence for women’s rights and abolition. Gerard Ramsey, son of a wealthy Boston family, comes to Cincinnati to escape his father’s schemes of marriage. Moreover, he wants to break with his father, in a way that will anger him, while providing himself with his own independence. His planning is soon complicated by Widow Brightman and her tendency for speaking to him as his equal and her challenge to consider the lives of others over his own for once. As racial tensions rise in Cincinnati, Blessing and Gerard struggle to find common ground as violence escalates to harm not only them, but their loved ones as well.

I always appreciate when an author doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of history. Lyn doesn’t gloss over anything – this story is full of hurting people, whether they are orphans, prostitutes, free blacks, escaped slaves or a young woman fighting for her life and her distraught husband. Lyn highlights the injustices and perils that women faced during that time and how anyone opposing them was often scrutinized and targeted by society as well. She also includes several historical figures within the story – Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglass to name a few. I loved the impact that they had on Gerard, as I’m sure they had in history at the time. Because they add a lot of historical significance and depth to the story, these were the aspects of the story that I appreciated most.

While I did enjoy Blessing more than the first book in the series, there was just something that didn’t click with the writing style. I didn’t find the details that I typically crave when reading historical fiction. I often felt that the characters feelings and some of the tense scenes in the story were told to me, rather than shown. I know this is not every reader’s preference, which is obvious because Lyn has a lot of fans of this book and its predecessor. The story itself is very entertaining and Blessing is an engaging character. Gerard is not as easy to root for, but he makes a compelling transition from selfish to selfless, and I ended up liking him in the last half of the story. I also love when authors let readers know what has become of characters from previous books – it was great to see what happened to Honor and Sam and the rest of their family.

While there were some aspects of the story that I didn’t love, I still found a lot to appreciate about Blessing. Blessing possesses a lot of spunk and tenacity, and because of her position in society as both a widow and a Quaker, it rings true throughout the story. Blessing is committed to helping those in need in Cincinnati, and while Gerard Ramsey seems at odds with everything she stands for, she can’t help but feel he is simply masking a greater hurt. The contrast that their personalities created within the story is very compelling. Their verbal debates are entertaining, but also provoked me to think more deeply about injustices and how my actions might affect others.

That is ultimately what I came away from after reading this story – your choices have consequences, whether just coming back at you or another person, and even if today most of our actions are not as grand and sweeping as Blessing’s, you can still make a difference in the lives of those around you – choosing to act even in simple ways can make a difference.
