At West Point, Only True Love Should Lead You to Flirtation Walk
Lucinda Pennyworth, the daughter of a con man, is trying her best to leave her father’s sordid past behind her. When he dies unexpectedly, she takes the opportunity to move to West Point to live with her aunt, ready to take on a new life and determined to marry a respectable man, a West Point cadet, to impress her relatives.
Seth Westcott, a cadet at the academy, is proud to be at the top of his senior class. But when his mother dies and his sister loses their inheritance to a swindler, Seth wants nothing more than to head west to track down the con man. But the army will only send the cadets at the bottom of the class to the frontier . . . which leaves Seth with some tough choices.
When a woman trying her best to be good meets a man determined to be anything but, can there be hope for love, or will two lonely hearts be condemned to casual flirtation?
My thoughts and giveaway:
I really need to read more books by Siri. I have always enjoyed them but I don’t read nearly enough of them.
This is such an interesting book with an intriguing plot. Siri spins a vicious cycle for our characters.
Lucinda is trying to be good, but I worried about being able to trust her. As time went on I began to trust her more. Her journey is very interesting. She struggles with something many of us women struggle with. Can God forgive all the bad things she has done? She truly questions this. She has a very warped idea of who God is and therefore who He says she is.
Seth, oh poor Seth. He is really caught in a tough position as he tries to get away to help his sister but in the process looses Lucinda and then the knowledge we have as the reader that it is Lucinda’s father that has tricked Seth’s sister. How is that all going to work out?
Siri has crafted a wonderful book with a very unique plot. I loved the setting and the story. If you enjoy historical romance I have no doubt you will enjoy this book.
