Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Left to fend for herself upon her father’s sudden death, Amorelle is distraught to learn that some the presumptuous but well-meaning members of his congregation have decided to take over by marrying her off to the first bidder and selling her treasures. With little choice Amorelle does what she must. She packs up her house and goes to her uncle’s. But not all roads lead to a happy ending.

Will these tumultuous time give Amorelle the faith she desires to lean on the God she so desperately needs?

Hott Review:

Amorelle is a bit of an odd story. It has all of the elements, but it just wasn’t amazing. Her thoughts and actions, along with the other characters, were very naive. The book, however, has a few very wonderful passages about marriage that I believe will help teens know what not to accept.
