The Proposal, the first of a fresh new series set in Victorian England by Lori Wick, is a captivating tale of Christ's love at work.When Frank and Lydia Palmer discover Lydia's brother is the guardian of three children, they're horrified because he is well-known for his tyrannical nature. William Jennings, relieved to have a male heir without having to succumb to marriage, sets about raising the boys and hires a nanny for the girl. The brothers tolerate their gruffly kind superior until they discover the cruelty of their sister's caretaker.When the situation erupts, Jennings goes to the Palmers for guidance. While there, he meets Marianne -- who turns his beliefs about women and God upside down with her gentle reasoning and Christ-honoring lifestyle.

Lori Wick's bestselling English Garden series (more than 720,000 copies sold) is filled with engaging characters and stories. Now with fresh, new covers, each of the four books in the series will hold a favorite spot on the nightstand or bookshelf of any reader who loves a great romance. The Proposal, book one in the series, is set in 1810 London, England. William Jennings has never been interested in marriage and family. So when a relative dies and leaves Jennings three young children, his world turns upside down. Thrilled to have boys to carry on his name, William invests time in the two brothers, but the little girl is tended to by a negligent nanny. Finally, Jennings seeks help from his sister and soon becomes acquainted with her neighbor, Marianne Walker. Her strength and faith intrigues Jennings, but will he allow himself to fall for her and the God she loves?
