Once again Ruth Axtell Morren writes a story that is hard to put down and full of drama set in London in the early 1800's. Jonah Quinn is moments away from being hung from the Newgate Prison when he is unexpectedly broke free by the crowd. He grabs a young woman, Florence Hathaway, as his hostage and flees to the seedier part of town to hide. Jonah is an innocent man, but there is no way anyone would believe him. But Florence is a lady who reaches out to the needy and downtrodden and encourages him to come to her home and let her brother try to help him.

Before you know it, Jonah is in Florence and Damien's home and they are trying to make a gentleman out of this burly fugitive from the law. Jonah fight's Florence every step of the way and you don't see how these two people could ever grow to love one another, but it happens, very slowly.

You will find that looking like a gentleman on the outside won't change the man on the inside. But when you have people with faith in God and a powerful prayer life, the inside of a person can be changed and then it affects his whole demeanor. Florence was a hard person to get to know, but in time I came to understand and appreciate her. Jonah has a hard time coming to grips with life and his circumstances, but when he gives it all over to the Lord, he will find that the Lord's way is the best way. This was another great story and I am glad I found this author. She is easy to read and does a great job of weaving precious love stories. ( )
