Courting Trouble

Deeanna Gist

Tired of waiting for a match made in heaven, she'll settle for one made in Texas. Whether it's riding bikes, catching snakes, or sliding down banisters, Essie Spreckelmeyer just can't quite make herself into the ideal woman her hometown-and her mother-expect her to be. It's going to take an extraordinary man to appreciate her joy and spontaneity-or so says her doting oilman father. Sadly such a man doesn't appear to reside in Corsicana, Texas. It's 1894, the year of Essie's thirtieth birthday, and she decides the Lord has more important things to do than provide her a husband. If she wants one, she needs to catch him herself. So she writes down the names of all the eligible bachelors in her small Texas town, makes a list of their attributes and drawbacks, closes her eyes, twirls her finger, and...picks one. But convincing the lucky "husband-to-be" will be a bit more of a problem. Join Deeanne Gist for another unforgettable tale and find out whether Essie's plan to catch a husband succeeds or if she's just courting trouble!
