Spotlight and Review: "A Love So True," by Melissa Jagears

About the book:
Evelyn Wisely loves working at the local orphanage, but her heart can't ignore the women of Teaville who are also in need. Her boss is willing to help build a shelter for them, but only if she gains the cooperation and financial support of other local businessmen.

While David Kingsman plans to stay in Teaville just long enough to get his father's business back on solid ground, he's intrigued by Evelyn's cause and finds himself more invested with each passing day.

Will their plans and partnership fall apart when confronted with all that is stacked against them, or can they trust in God's plan despite it all?

My thoughts:

The characters in this book felt very real because they were both flawed. David struggled a bit with insecurity due to an overbearing father who failed to support David's choices and dreams. Evelyn also struggled with her troubled emotions, but they were due to a huge secret in her past that I didn't see coming. But despite their own troubles, both characters chose to look outside themselves to help the prostitutes in their community break free from their circumstances and find a better way to support their children. Needless to say, not everyone in their town was supportive of their efforts, which often took them into a side of town that most people dared not enter. I admired Evelyn and David's determination to follow their convictions and defy convention.
