BOOK REVIEW: Love's First Bloom

Delia Parr has written a wonderful book of fiction combining mystery and a touch of romance set in the 1830’s.

Ruth Livingstone’s life is about to change drastically when her father, the Reverend, places a young child in her arms and makes arrangements for them to flee to New Jersey under the name Ruth Malloy, the widow.

Will Ruth ever find out the truth of who the child Lily really is? Will she ever understand the charges brought against her father? Will she be able to keep her and Lily’s identity a secret even from the reporters? Will she ever learn to trust again? Will she ever find love? Find the answers to all these questions and a lot more in this wonderful story of God’s love.

This was an intriguing book; I did not want to put it down. It kept me wondering what would happen next. Delia Parr has a way of placing you right there watching from the sideline. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good book of mystery, romance and faith. I am looking forward to reading more of Delia Parr’s books.
