    One thought on “The Newcomer”

    1. Only a few pages into The Newcomer and I knew that Laurie Eakes has crafted together another one of her unique stories The last in her little New Jersey series, it was a nice conclusion Though I admit it wasn t my favorite in the series, it was a very enjoyable read.All the characters, including the main characters Gordon and Marigold, were fairly well developed I didn t feel like I really knew them very well by the time the book came to a close, but taking into consideration that it is a very s [...]

    2. This was an enchanting read that has inspired me to read many of her Laurie Alice Eakes books The heroine of the story, Marigold McCorkle, has a big heart which is evident in her desire to remain with two recently orphaned children until their uncle arrives, resulting in halting her upcoming engagement She eventually wonders if he ever truly loved her when he becomes too impatient and threatens to call off the engagement But then that leaves her with nowhere to live Unless she is able to stay w [...]

    3. Learning to be humbleDad wants his daughter to serve as a nursemaid for a year before she marries to take her hautiness down a peg or two After a tragic accident kill the parents of the two girls she cares for, she ends up working longer waiting on the arrival of their uncle Her financee breaks the engagement because she puts her charges before him There are shenagans going on at the boating business and when the uncle arrives he tends to just want to put the girls in school somewhere, sell ever [...]

    4. Found this sweet little tale while on my Christmas book splurge Marigold McCorkle is an interesting heroine, trying to learn to not be so selfish, and Gordon Chambers a hero who s got to learn to stop being a loner The two little girls, Ruby and Beryl, seem quite realternately charming and troublesome The younger, Ruby, especially struggles with her parents recent, sudden deaths in shipwreck.

    5. I really liked this inspirational historical romance The h, Marigold, was a strong and intelligent young woman the H, Gordon, became a caring man as the story progressed and the nieces, Beryl and Ruby, with their everyday playing, quarrels, and making up, came off as realistic children The beautiful setting of 1890s Cape May, New Jersey was a wonderful background for this story It s so well written that you ll practically feel the soft breezes and salty air A keeper

    6. Leaves you guessing.Nice book to read and relax to Great character build up as well as very descriptive of the environment I almost felt like I was in the story.Schisum swbell

    7. Nice short story about marigold Her parents putting her into service to find her roots and humility before getting marriaged.
