Description:An unlikely attraction occurs between two passengers on a steamboat journey up the Missouri River to Montana...
She is a self-centered young woman from a privileged family who fears the outdoors and avoids anything rustic. He is a preacher living under a sense of duty and obligation to love the unlovable people in the world. She isn't letting anything deter her from solving a family mystery that surfaced after her mother's death. He is on a mission to reach the rejects of society in the remote wilderness regions of Montana. Miss Fannie Rousseau and Reverend Samuel Beck are opposites in every way... except in how they both keep wondering if their paths will ever cross again.
My Opinion:A Most Unsuitable Match by Stephanie Whitson was a good read. I liked the characters and I thought the situations they were in were very realistic for the time period and the setting of the book. The character Samuel Beck’s faith and love for God is so encouraging and optimistic. Sometimes I realize that I don't just have to be at church to learn new things or to hear a good message. I can get them at home just by taking some time out of my day to sit and read.
The only thing I didn't like about this book was the end. I felt like their should have been more to the story and that Stephanie just kind of ended it. Their wasn’t really anytime to tie up loose strings but all the sudden BAM everything was fixed and then it was five years later.
