Miss Jenny Higgins sets off to Rocky Creek to find the perfect husband for her two younger sisters. Armed with Miss Abigail Jenkin's book, The Complete and Authoritative Manual for Attracting and Procuring a Husband, Jenny sets up interviews with the men of Rocky Creek to determine whether or not they are suitable matches for her sisters. Unbeknownced to Jenny, her sisters are falling in love with men of their choosing and there is nothing that Jenny seems to be able to do about it. After some talks with the pastor's wife, Jenny realizes that perhaps God does have a plan for all of us and that leaving it up to God is probably the better way for her sisters to find their husbands.
A Suitor for Jenny was one of those books that I had a really hard time getting in to. I had heard that Margaret Brownley was a great author, which is why I decided to give this book a try, and I have to say, I was not completely impressed with it. It took a really long time before I was interested in what I was reading, and by the time I was interested it seemed like the book was over. There was definitely an unexpected twist at the end and I wish that the book had continued for another couple of chapters so that I could see how everything played out.
