When Love Calls by Lorna Seilstad

Cover Art This is a wonderful historical romance about an independent girl who finds that she can't do it all herself!  Hannah Gregory is the oldest of three girls and after their parents die, she drops out of law school to get a job as a switchboard operator. Hannah has a hard time following all the rules of her new job, one of which is no fraternizing with gentlemen while in training.  That's one rule she thought would be easy to follow but she meets attorney Lincoln Cole when he comes to evict them from their family farm.  She hopes to avoid him but when an old friend is arrested for arson, she must turn to Lincoln for help.  Will she realize she doesn't have to go it alone?

I loved the characters in this well-written story.  Hannah was delightful, as were both her sisters.  Charlotte struggles with her first love interest and I'm hoping the next book in the series is about her.  Tessa is hilarious with her obsession about gruesome headlines and quite a character.  Lincoln was wonderful also.  The descriptions of working as a switchboard operator are fascinating and quite a change from our modern technology.  I loved the themes of depending on others and God and the importance of being yourself in a relationship.  I highly recommend this wonderful story.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.

Available May 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
