I recently read Lyn Cote’s newest book, Honor, finding it to be a quiet, easy, relaxing read. I easily read it in only a couple of days, since it was a quick, simple story, wraught with trials, devotion, love, and struggle.
Honor, out of necessity, marries Samuel and finds a way to make the best of this quickly and quietly arranged marriage. Being in the year of mourning, Honor and Samuel have a quiet ceremony before Samuel’s mother dies. Now they are both to embark on this marriage, creating a life and family, without any guidance.
Eventually, Honor reconciles with her past. The past that led her into a position of marrying a stranger, Samuel.
Lyn Cote smoothly transitions from Honor to Samuel’s innermost thoughts and feelings throughout the book. Her descriptions of events and the difficulties that all are faced with drew me into the turn of the century time. I imagined long flowing dresses and aprons, top hats, and suspenders.
