The Covered Deep by Brandy Vallance

About the Book:
Bianca Marshal is holding out for the perfect husband. Finding a man that meets the requirements of her "must-have" list in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains has proven impossible. Bianca's mama insists that there's no such thing as a perfect true love, and that Bianca's ideal man is pure fiction. On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Bianca discovers a devastating statistic: her chance of marrying is now only eighteen percent. Unwilling to accept spinsterhood, Bianca enters an essay contest that propels her into a whirlwind search for her soulmate. Via the opulence of London and the mysteries of the Holy Land, Bianca's true love will be revealed, but not without a heavy price.

About the Author:
Brandy Vallance fell in love with the Victorian time period at a young age, loving the customs, manners, and especially the intricate rules of love. Since time travel is theoretically impossible, she lives in the nineteenth century vicariously through her novels. Unaccountable amounts of black tea have fueled this ambition. Brandy's love of tea can only be paralleled by her love of Masterpiece Theater Classics, deep conversations, and a good book. Brandy is the 2013 Operation First Novel winner and the 2012 winner of the ACFW Genesis Contest for historical romance. You can connect with Brandy via her website, Facebook, Goodreads, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter @BrandyVallance.

Margie's Comments: Wow! This first novel by Brandy Vallance is amazing! I love an understated romance in the style of Jane Austen. And Brandy Vallance has succeeded in The Covered Deep. Set during the Victorian Era, this book covers a good portion of the world starting in southern Ohio, moving to England, and then on to the Holy Land. I literally had to tear myself away from the story in order to get several other things on my daily to-do lists done. But I couldn't wait to get back to this well-researched, superbly written book. I can highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
