At Love’s Bidding
Author: Regina Jennings
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Historical Fiction
Regina Jennings’s book, At Love’s Bidding, tells the story of Miranda Wimplegate, a young woman who helps her family manage an auction house in Boston, Massachusetts. In a faux pas, the auction house accidently sells a portrait that they were not to sell.
These circumstances set Miranda’s grandfather to purchase an auction house in Missouri where the portrait was overheard to be shipped. Miranda sets out with her grandfather to Missouri where surprises and the mystery of the portrait await. While in Missouri, Miranda meets many quirky and endearing characters, one of whom is Wyatt Ballentine. Their journey together is fraught with angst, however, these characters impact each other in very positive and faithful ways.
I would recommend this book. The storyline is entertaining but also explores how faith impacts us on our walk through life’s struggles. I enjoyed reading this story. Regina Jennings is a gifted storyteller, who writes very memorable characters.
