Currently Reading: She Walks in Beauty by Siri Mitchell

If you're stopping by for Faith and Fiction Saturday, it's cancelled due to the 24 hour readathon.

I've read a total of 200 pages this's just been that kind of week. I really wanted to be able to get a review of this up today but I'm not finished in time. I have a lot to say about it, so I'll still write one and post soon.

Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite Christian fiction authors and I'm loving this book so far. The synopsis is below, but again, I'll a better review soon.

For a young society woman seeking a favorable marriage, so much depends on her social season debut. Clara Carter has been given one goal: secure the affections of the city's most eligible bachelor.

Debuting means plenty of work--there are corsets to be fitted, dances to master, manners to perfect. Her training soon pays off, however, as celebrity's spotlight turns Clara into a society-page darling.

Yet Clara soon wonders if this is the life she really wants. Especially when she learns her best friend has also set her sights on Franklin De Vries.

When a man appears who seems to love her simply for who she is and gossip backlash turns ugly, Clara realizes it's not just her marriage at stake--the future of her family depends on how she plays the game.
