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.

The book was great and the audio lives up to the books greatness.
Everything. Characters were great. The story was wonderful.
She did a great job on male and female characters. You were immediately engrossed in the story as she had all the characters flow flawlessly.
It's a great title I wouldn't change it.
Thank you audible for having more Lori Wick books. She has a lot more we would all enjoy listening too. Can't wait to see more listed.
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.
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.
The accent, most definitely!
This is a wonderful book. It was the first Lori Wick book for me to "read". It will not be the last. Audible is quickly becoming my favorite. The narrator did a great job.
Ms wicks has taken modern values and modern religious beliefs and written as if this was the norm back in the 1800's. Children were seen and not heard. The rod was not spared! Women were not respected by society or the law. In ms wicks version of this time period she claims the opposite. I kept listening mainly because I couldn't believe how bad it was! I am not against an honest expression of faith, but don't try to rewrite history!

Lovely Story - Christian Thought is inspiring and appreciated!
The female protagonist reminded me a little of Jane Eyre - one of my favorite books.
First Time to hear of Virginia Leishman.
No to the author. The voice was ok.
I only listened about half an hour to this book. When I read the description, it looked like an ordinary romance, but when I listened to it it soon became clear that it was a christian book. I'm sure it's an ok book for a christian audience, but as an atheist I have wasted good money on a book I'll never listen to.
