The Proposal: The English Garden

Front Cover
Harvest House Publishers, 2002 - Christian fiction - 297 pages
When Frank and Lydia Palmer discover Lydia's brother is the guardian of three children, they're horrified because he is well-known for his tyrannical nature. William, relieved to have a male heir without having to succumb to marriage, sets about raising the boys and hires a nanny for the girl. The brothers tolerate their gruffly kind superior, until they discover the cruelty of their sister's caretaker. When the situation erupts, Jennings goes to the Palmers for guidance. While there, he meets Marianne who turns his beliefs about women and God upside down with her gentle reasoning and Christ-honoring lifestyle.
