Goodreads Summery: Head to Colonial Connecticut where unexpected adventure catches the Ingersoll brothers by surprise—and brings unexpected love into their lives. Nathaniel has his sights set on becoming a master figurehead carver, until he risks everything for a woman. Jonathan’s merchant trade and his new love are in jeopardy from a brother’s animosity. Micah expects to settle down to peace after a life of fighting on the frontier but finds a young woman hiding from an abductor. Alden is press-ganged into tending an ailing naval captain, then catches sight of the captain’s fetching niece. Will the unexpected end in four courtships?

     Four brothers Nathaniel, Jonathan, Micah and Alden live in the mid 1700’s and are working to help keep the colonies going. Nathaniel is working at a carver and finds himself helping a woman who claims to be wrongly brought to the new world.  Jonathan is the captain of a merchant ship and one stormy night takes refuge at an inn and finds a young woman who steals his heart. Micah is a baker and finds a child hiding in a barrel of flour. The mother claims to be on the run but can Micah find out the truth before its to late? Alden is a doctor who finds himself on a British war ship thanks to the Captains niece. Will he forgive her in time to find love?

     Another book in the Romancing America line and it was a good read.

What I liked: I liked how the stories went in order and intertwined. I also find this time period interesting to read about. I thought all the characters where likeable and each story could have been a full book in itself. I also really liked the cover image of this book.

What I did not like: The 2nd story about Jonathan was kind of boring. It just needed something to give it some excitement and I would have liked it better.

     Over all I enjoyed this book. Of the four stories I liked that last two the best and my favorite was the last one with Alden. That story could have easily been a stand alone novel. I like the Romancing America line because they can be read easily and are great books for those days you find yourself waiting on your kids at practice or waiting at the doctors office. Looking forward to reading more of these books.
