Overview

Gordon Hill, Tennessee, 1901

"So I suppose Millie Beth may be wondering why I was bold enough to ask for the privilege of walking you home today," David commented. Celia's face showed how nonplussed she felt by his upfront manner. "And now, I've disconcerted you with my plain speaking. It's something you'll have to get accustomed to if this courtship is to go any further."

"Courtship?" Celia inquired, only a trifle breathlessly. "Is that truly what this is?"

"It's the best I can do, ma'am," David admitted. "Flowery speeches and subtle hints are not my strong suit. I run more to telling a girl what's on my mind and asking her what's on hers. Maybe that's why I'm thirty-three and still single." He looked down at her and saw that she had no reply. "See, there? I'm doing it again."

She paused for a moment's reflection then nodded her head once. "Plain speaking I can't fault a man for that."

He stopped, there in the middle of the path in full view of at least ten people and turned to face her. "Then I certainly hope you'll accept my proposal. If you don't mind honesty in a man, then you're the girl for me."

"Dr. Byrd, please," Celia replied as she continued on their way down the broad path. "Folks are beginning to stare."

"I'd say I'm sorry," he replied, "but I'm not. If you think it bothers me for people to stare at me as I talk with a beautiful girl, you don't know me very well yet, do you?"

He had to work to win her heart and her father's permission. Then he had to find a way to get her down the aisle. David knew how to deal with a wayward girl and didn't hesitate to apply his paddle where it would do the most good, but could he truly convince her to trust him? Giving up wasn't a choice, no matter how many times a bottom had to be set ablaze with belt, spoon and paddle.

The second book in the series is primarily about Celia, Millie\\\'s best friend. She falls in love with Dr. Byrd, David, and when her father does not approve she starts to sneak around with Millie\\\'s help. Neither David nor Coleman approves of the girls are constantly in trouble. Fun story about best friends that are spoiled and bratty in the early 1900s. Liked this story is much is the first one.

Pretty good story except it could have had a bit more of a storyline. I found myself getting distracted in the middle.

A reader:

I found this book really dry. This is the second Chula Stone book I have tried and they just feel kind of... empty to me. Like the spankings are there, and the story is sort of there, but they don\\\'t meet up quite right. :-/
