Unrivaled, by Siri Mitchell, really made me smile.
The basic plot is that in 1910 a young woman named Lucy comes back home from Europe and finds her family’s candy making business in shambles. She could either marry her way out of it (like her mother wants), or become a young businesswoman and turn that candy business around. Booyah!
Unrivaled reminded me so much of everything I loved about Bethany House as a teenager. There’s history, romance, and a determined female character all rolled into one.
387 pages and every one of them rated G! But Siri Mitchell managed to tell a compelling story without any vice whatsoever. That’s pretty amazing.
I am definitely adding this book to my collection of novels I can turn my daughter loose on someday. I might even read it again myself, just for fun.
P.S. I received a free copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest opinions and review.
