Pippa Greathouseabout this book: A new generation of Strasburg is here. Cicely Andrews and her mischievous twin, Mary Polly, are nineteen now and home from school for a month. And both are no less mischievous than they've always been!
Since she was a child, Cicely Andrews has always loved Abel Carter. And he loves her. But last year, when he put her across his knee for one of her pranks on another Strasburg citizen, she had decided she could never look him in the face again.
When she runs into him in the General Store, trying to switch places with Polly, who should be standing behind her but Judge Abel Carter, the 'firm and fair' judge of Shenandoah County? She cringes with embarrassment.
Abel has never stopped loving her. And he's determined to make her his bride. But he's also determined that she will begin to act like a grown up young lady, instead of the impish, naughty child she's always been.
Cicely has a determination of her own, however. She wants desperately to please him and turn over a new leaf, regardless of what it takes. Unfortunately, trouble seems to follow her, no matter where she goes or what she does. And when she ends up facing him in court, she can't believe it's happening.
And Abel is the one person in town who can—and will—see to it that she behaves.
Publisher's Note: This is a delightful story of young lovers, containing sweet romance yet firm disciplining of errant young ladies. If this sort of story offends, please do not buy.
This was great fun to write. Cicely wants so badly to behave, yet has a cloud of mischief hanging over her head and just can't seem to get out from under it, goes from one situation to another in trouble. It isn't helped any by her sister Polly, and is made worse by the old school friend, Phebe, who comes for a visit and brings a brand of mischief all her own.
I truly loved all the characters! This book, as with all of mine, is a "standalone." However, if you as a reader have not read the first series, "The Strasburg Chronicles" set in beautiful Strasburg Virginia, Cicely and Mary Polly are the wild twin girls belonging to Cinderella and Henson. They were originally introduced briefly in the Fourth book, "The Return of Lucy Grace" and were also in "Miriam's Rebirth" the last book. This is an entirely new series, about the children of the original series who have now grown up, and begin to experience lives and loves of their own!
I do hope you enjoy reading it! ~Pippa Greathouse
