"On a bitter December day in 1785, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of master blacksmith Liege Lee in York, Pennsylvania. Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship and move west. But because he is a fast worker and superb craftsman, Liege endeavors to keep him in Lancaster by appealing to an old tradition: the apprentice shall marry one of his master's beautiful daughters. Eden is as gentle and fresh as Elspeth is high-spirited and cunning. But are they truly who they appear to be? In a house laced with secrets, each sister seeks to secure her future. Which one will claim Silas's heart - and will he agree to Liege's arrangement?" -- Cover verso.

Beautifully written book, a cut above your typical inspirational historical fiction. Excellent characterization and plot line; historical details seemed accurate and were very interesting, too! Despite the author's use of challenging vocabulary words, the diction never feels forced. She definitely spoiled me for the next couple of books I read!

Note: A couple of really sad things happen in the book. However, these served to make the story read more realistically, and thankfully for me (who tends to take sad things too hard), they were not dwelt on in excessive detail.

Highly, highly recommended.
