very sweet love story of two misfits that fall in love and build a life together

Loving Eliza

I just got through with Loving Eliza, and thought it was wonderful! I love the message, that everyone, no matter their past, deserves love.
I've read about 10 of Ruth Ann Nordin's books, on my iPad, and find them to be lovely! They are very well written, and I really appreciate the bits of history, mingled in with the love stories. She also manages to put just the right amount of "romance". I also like that even the ones, that I've read, set in modern day times, have some sort of look into the past. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone, as a lighthearted, easy read, with a great message :)

Great story!

I found the story to be very well written. I loved the main characters from the beginning. Great story!!
