After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.

Talk about spunky! Charlotte is not some quiet, sit back and let men run things type of girl. Not only did she stand up for things in this book, but she reached right out and grabbed me from page one. Before I knew it, I had finished this book and glanced at the clock. I won't tell you what time it was, but I'll tell you that I winced and quickly turned off the light! If you pick up this book, you're going to fall in love with Charlotte and her sisters. You'll chuckle when Joel's sister messes with him, you'll mourn over what happens to the orphans and you'll hold your breath until you know at least one character makes it out okay. Have I teased you enough yet? Go and pick up this book!
