I loved the main characters of Melissa Jagears newest Teaville Moral Society book, A Love So True. From the way Evelyn Wisely and David Kingsman meet, I knew their story was a unique one. From Evelyn’s seeming unlike of David and his determination to figure out why, these two form an unlikely friendship.
But they each make the other a better person. Through Evelyn’s interactions with the lesser in society (the orphaned children and the soiled doves), David takes notice of the needs for the first time. And Evelyn learns to hope for more than the minimum help she needs to make her dreams come true. Yet she also learns she is settling for less than the best in her own dreams due to a mistake in her past.
The interactions with the children at the orphanage were spot on and it was fun to catch up with Lydia, Nicholas, and Charlie from the previous stories while getting a quick introduction to the new members of the Moral Society.
In the end, Jagears’ message of God’s perfect timing rings clear and bright. Sometimes God’s answer is “wait” for the best of reasons.

Evelyn Wisely has a heart for the orphans of Teaville and works at a local mansion that rescues children out of the town’s red-light district and gives them a place to live. But her desire to help isn’t limited to orphans. The owner of the mansion, Nicholas Lowe, is willing to help her try to get the women working in prostitution out of the district as well–if she can gain the cooperation and support of local businessmen to go against the rest of the community.
David Kingsman has recently arrived in Teaville from Kansas City to help with one of his father’s companies in town. While he plans on staying only long enough to prove his business merit to his father, he’s shown interest in Evelyn’s work and is intrigued enough by her to lend his support to her cause.
They begin with the best of intentions, but soon the complications pile up and Evelyn and David’s dreams look more unattainable every day. When the revelation of a long-held secret creates a seemingly insurmountable rift between them, can they trust God still has a good plan for them despite all that is stacked against them?
