Essie Spreckelmeyer has a bit more spunk than the normal woman in her 1894 town of Corsicana, Texas. While Essie revels in her unusual and spontaneous lifestyle, the eligible men of the town seem to disagree, which Essie's spinsterhood reveals. At thirty years old, Essie decides that it's time to stop waiting on the men to take the initiative, and makes her own list of men to court. However, the man she is most interested in is nowhere near the top of her list.

This book is not for the faint of heart! I'm kidding but this book was -I almost can't put it into words. Deeanne Gist has a gift for writing the most likeable characters. Essie goes through so much because she-like some women today-thinks that she needs a man. Despite all her tests and trials (most which come of her own making :P) Essie finally finds the man she was looking for all along and to her surprise he's been there the whole time. I recommend nay I challenge you to read this book. Perhaps you like Essie shall find that you are just the person that God made you to be.
