It’s always a pleasant surprise when I’m invited to Beta Read a book and it’s almost done. I’ve done and will continue to read the raw materials of authors who are releasing their work one chapter at a time. That’s fine, but to get to read through a novel that keeps me entertained, and has the ability to put the reader inside the story so easily – My hats are off. There were a few typos and a couple of grammar stumbles in the first chapter, after that it just sings along. It was hard to believe I had started Jennifer’s book at 8PM and read through until 2:00 AM without making notes, trying to figure out what the author expected of me (the reader), or needed help doing a rewrite.
The Involuntary Widow is a wonderful adventure into early English mores and customs. It reminds us of what acceptable social behavior was and a woman’s place. The simple Christian love story is clean, fun, and full of hope. The devine plan of their lives weaves together many strong yet kind souls.
A great summer afternoon or winter evening read. 4 Stars!!!
