In the small Puritan community of Stoneybrooke, Massachusetts, Susannah Phillips stands out both for her character and beauty. She wants only a simple life but soon finds herself pursued by the town's wealthiest bachelor and by a roguish military captain sent to protect them. One is not what he seems and the other is more than meets the eye.

In trying to discover true love's path, Susannah is helped by the most unlikely of allies, a wounded woman who lives invisible and ignored in their town. Susannah has been taught to follow rules, dress the right way, believe the right things, and live the right life. But when love interferes, she faces a choice: Follow the rules or follow her heart.

This book is well written and interesting but a little more grim than most of Mitchell's work. Also, the unhappy ending surprised and disappointed me.

this book is incredible!!!!! such suspense. I did have a little trouble figuring out who each character was.

When I first started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The characters and the plot line were very intriguing, especially all the tidbits about the puritan lifestyle. However, as I got closer to the end of the novel, I had to take a break because it was not going at all like I wanted it to. But now that I finished the novel, I have to say I actually liked the ending. It added depth and intrigue that wouldn't have been there if the ending had been predictable. Highly recommend.

I liked this book. I wish the ending would have been different, but it was refreshing to see it not be predictable. A good book to understand the Puritan thinking.
