Morning Glory, by LaVyrle Spencer

In Georgia just before World War II, Ellie Dinsmore, a pregnant widow with two small boys places an ad for a husband in the local newspaper. Ex-convict Will Parker answers her ad.

This is how two lonely people meet on Ellie’s run down farm, and eventually fall in love. Author LaVyrle Spencer develops the characters and tells a wonderful story, about a couple who have been shunned by society, separated by war, survived through a false accusation of murder, and eventually find the love they have needed for so long.

  1. I read this book ages ago and enjoyed it (as I have the others books of hers I've read) because the characters are real, not caricatures. I identified with Ellie because she wasn't perfect, beautiful & stunning. Thanks for the reminder of this book - I may have to check it out again!
