Molly Lovelace has more than her share of problems. She thought she loved Bailey Warner until he declared her to be a "temptress" to the entire church congregation, her parents are pressuring her to marry a man of means (and she doesn't even like him) and there's the issue of the new mysterious man in town who wants to take her with him on a trip around the world. Just thinking about all this makes my head hurt! I had a bit of trouble warming up to Molly until I realized that she was a lot like me. The decisions she makes in Love in the Balance are quite similar to ones that I would make if I were in her shoes. Despite the fact that Bailey Warner declares his intentions in front of the church and his words unintentionally paint a less than favorable picture of Molly, I really liked him. He's quite human and does make a few wrong choices but his convictions are strong and his integrity is admirable. Edward Pierrepont, the new man in town, is intriguing and mysterious. He gives the story a terrific twist that readers will never expect.:) I enjoyed revisiting the characters Rosa and Weston, who were in Regina's first book Sixty Acres and a Bride and I especially LOVED how Regina Jennings ended this story. I wondered if/how Molly would be redeemed and if there was even a possibility of a happily ever after. I won't give the ending away, but I will tell you that the words made me cry. Love in the Balance is in no way a fairytale. It's deeper and richer with a focus on forgiveness and love, much like God freely gives to us.
