Publisher's Summary

For listeners who love a heartwarming romance and a rich historical setting comes a tale of a young woman with a heavy burden, the International Cotton Exposition, and the pursuit of true love. 

Eighteen-year-old Laurel Millard, youngest of seven children, is expected to stay home and "take care of Mama" by her older siblings, but Laurel has dreams of starting her own family. Operating a silk loom at the Atlanta Exposition will give her the chance to capture the heart of a man wealthy enough to take care of Laurel and any children she might bear, as well as her mother. 

Brendan Rochester's parents have given him an ultimatum: settle down with a wife or lose his family inheritance. At the Exposition, Brendan meets Laurel. Marrying her would satisfy his parents's command, she would look lovely on his arm for social events, and in her besotted state, he believes she would overlook him continuing pursuing rowdy adventures with his unmarried buddies. Brendan decides to woo Laurel. 

Willie Sharp is not well-off and must take on an extra job at the Atlanta Exposition as a security guard. When mischief-makers cause trouble in the Women's Building, Willie is put in charge of keeping the building secure. He enjoys visiting with Laurel, who seems like the little sister he never had, but his feelings for Laurel change to something much deeper. Can Willie convince Laurel that he can give her a better life - even with so little to offer?

TERRIBLE DRAWL-- COULDN'T KEEP A CONSISTENT PACE!

Do NOT listen to this narration. She draws way too many words out with a TERRIBLE southern drawl. Then there is a race to finish the... paragraph/page. READ IT YOURSELF, or don't bother. JUST TERRIBLE!
-- -- tried it since there wasn't very many reviews written-- -- now I know.
Story line? honestly-- not soo TERRIBLE! -- But could easily have passed on it.

Plus, what's up with this $24 crap-- then give it a sale price. IF YOU'RE VALUING SOMETHING AT A PRICE IT SHOULD BE COMPARABLE. This performance (and author) are NOWHERE near worthy. Not even a $1.99 rental. YES I PAID WAY TOO MUCH. DON'T WAIST THE CREDIT.
