Of Pens and Ploughshares by Ann Elizabeth Fryer.

In a duel of words, the son and daughter of opposing politicians go head-to-head until their hearts collide…

At one time, Rachel Enger thought she loved Warren Kendrick, except he left without responding to a single letter. Now he’s returned home to help his father win the mayoral election opposite her father and that means war.

Their battle spills from the Op-Ed section of the local newspaper to engulf the town. Sparks fly, eggs thrown, and mayhem ensues. Not to mention Mrs. Taylor’s rampaging goose is on the loose. Desperate for a measure of peace, the community leaders give the pair an unexpected ultimatum: work together until the election.

Can Rachel and Warren unify the town or will their divide continue to break it apart?

My Review

I received an early complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.

Of Pens and Ploughshares by Ann Elizabeth Fryer is part of her Hearts Unlocked historical romance series.

What a fun, sweet, touching story! I laughed in various moments and was challenged in others. And the quirky parts were fantastic, especially those involving a certain goose and … eggs.

The characters are on opposite side of their respective father’s run for mayor. When the pair take the op-eds, things get messy—literally. Add to it their broken romance and this second chance might be too much for the town to handle.

This author has one of my favorite storytelling voices and Of Pens and Ploughshares lives up to that expectation. I highly recommend reading this historical romance.

    “The survival bag, or whatever she called it, was not in Eunice’s bathroom.”
    I hope you have a great weekend!

    The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is A Promise for Faith by Stacy Simmons. The author is a dear friend of mine who unexpectedly went home to be with the Lord this week and I wanted to honor her by giving her the spotlight this week. I hope you have a great weekend 🙂
