    Acclaimed, best-selling author Lori Wick’s The Proposal is a moving tale of Christ’s love at work in early 19th-century London. William Jennings is not married and likes it that way. But when a relative passes away, he is suddenly guardian of three young children. This unexpected development provides him a male heir without the bother of a wife, yet the children quickly become more than he can handle. Finding help from a truly remarkable woman, he learns to see the world in a completely different light.

    What made the experience of listening to The Proposal the most enjoyable?

    The narrator's English accent really helped the story come to life. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of what country life for the priviledged was like during this period of England's history.


    What other book might you compare The Proposal to and why?

    Similar in some ways to Colleen Coble's Lonestar series where characters in those stories marry out of need, rather than love. Both author's do a good job of demonstrating the importance of friendship, respect, and commitment in a marriage, rather than depending solely on love.


    What does Virginia Leishman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accent, most definitely!
