    5 stars This is my first book by this author and I was completely enthralled From the very first page this book sparked my attention and I don't know when I've been immersed and involved in the lives of the characters I know I will never forget Will Parker and his utterly lonely existence until he meets Elly DinsA few of the things I loved1 I liked this book so much I did not want to put it down This is no light fluffy read but one of intense emotion I liked that I did not have to wade in and read a few chapters before my interest was aroused and soon as I met Elly I was drawn into the story and uickly became immersed as if I had become part of this small town in Georgia in 1941 2 Even though the hero heroine are different than most that I have read I liked them from the start LaVyrle Spencer has a wonderful way of expressing her characters emotions so that you feel a part of their lives And as the story progressed and I got to know them better I found myself loving Will Parker and Elly Dins These are two very lonely people both prisoners of their past and carrying deep emotional scars First we meet Elly who the town often refers to as “Crazy Widow Dins” As a child she suffered cruelly at the hands of those who were suppose to love and nourish her She is content to live in isolation away from the town where she is taunted and tormented due to the horrendous circumstances of her childhood Now a young widow with two small children and one on the way she is in need of a husband to help around her farm Becoming desperate she resorts to placing an add for a husband in the local paper all the while knowing the odds were against anyone responding I cannot fathom the pain in Elly’s heart The cruelty she suffered and endured has clearly left scars and insecurities that are than understandable They also have molded her into the kind loving person she has become And while I loved this courageous and resourceful woman my heart belongs to Will Parker He is a hero that I’ll always remember Upon first meeting him you know he is a manly man Unfortunately he is a shell of the man he could be A drifter down trodden with a near broken spirit; tired in his soul poor hungry mistreated by many and judged unfairly and harshly; he is a man much in need of a break from the hard knocks of life He needs a place to settle down and longs for enough food that there will be no skipped meals And deep down he yearns for that something he’s never hadlove And it is soon evident the caliber of the man he is; smart handsome with a hard muscled body that isn’t afraid of hard work; faithful patient and ambitious with a need to prove his worth I admired most everything about him 3 For me this was not only a beautifully written poignant love story but also one of Metamorphosis From the moment Will answers Elly’s add I was taken on a remarkable journey into the lives of two broken individuals and witnessed the transformation when trust and understanding is given hope is restored and the other half of your soul is found I loved their story; I enjoyed the secondary characters; I laughed I cried and hated for this book to end Thank you Jill for recommending this one and I hope you have

    Morning Glory is a glorious classic romance aflame with passion and bittersweet longing One needs perhaps to have a little of these ualities in one's soul to respond fully to the novel which to a cynical mind might seem like overworked melodrama but that to me sang with innocence and trustSet in a small town in Georgia the book spans about two and a half years during World War II and follows two of the most memorable characters I’ve ever met Will is an ex con an orphan displaced and haunted by his past Elly is a pregnant widow with two young children a reputation for madness and a deep mistrust for the people who have made her an outsider all of her life Will and Elly are good and decent people who would rather do the right thing than convenience themselves Anyone who will sacrifice their own happiness for higher considerations deserves to be happy I felt a sense of triumph when they realize that about themselvesIt’s just incredibly charming how these two gradually see each other in a new light and begin to fall in love and I loved the slow character building that comes with their day to day interactions The plot lovingly constructs one barrier after another to their happiness and I rejoiced as each one falls only to be even alarmed at the next What I loved most about this story is that both protagonists are on eual footing each “rescuing” the other Along with the wonderful relationship between the main characters “Morning Glory” also addresses their relationship with the larger community Will and Elly begin their healing when they find each other and that healing is completed when they make their peace with the town of Whitney and are accepted by it There are a number of vivid secondary characters and I especially want to mention the town librarian Gladys Beasley Miss Beasley is at first glance a real iron lady but underneath her gruffness lies a tender heart She becomes Will’s champion and mentor and helps him coax Ellie from her self imposed isolation LaVyrle Spencer writes in an almost lyrical fashion All of my senses came alive with her descriptive and beautiful prose and I desperately wanted to get back out in nature and live off the land The historic detail is never intrusive but pervasive nonetheless from the smallest aspects of everyday routine to the larger social and political issues of the time The writing is also gut wrenching and I was teary eyed a few times the kind of tears that come from good things happening to people who really need it because of their circumstances So often romance heroes and heroines are anything but ordinary There’s nothing wrong with that we all like a little wish fulfillment and fantasy in our reading It takes great talent though to make the lives of plain ordinary people not only interesting but memorable and Miss Spencer accomplished that in this book Morning Glory is full of unabashed sentiment glorious excess and of love so idealistic it seems so outdated in the 21st century It is the kind of book you have to give yourself to to open yourself to Logic and cynicism will get you nowhere with this one Trust me when it finally all comes together it’s a very good feeling cathartic even The happy ending felt truly earned because Will and Elly have worked for it and in a way so will the readers

    Orphan Bastard Convict Woman killer Boy Will Parker has been called every name in the book none of them inaccurate and all of them unflattering Drifting into Whitney Georgia in the summer of 1941 he's just been fired from the local sawmill on account of his stint in prison for killing a woman in a Texas brothel Bone thin from hunger and wearing clothes stolen from a local's drying line he decides to answer a woman's newspaper ad looking for a husband The yard may be full of junk the house a jumble of additions and the prospective wife a very pregnant mother of two who's known to the townspeople as Crazy Elly but he sees only an opportunity for redemptionThe man walking up her drive looks as beat down as a man can get but with two young boys and a third child due in a few months Eleanor Dins's willing to take any man willing to do a man's work around her house Widowed when her dreamer husband falls from a tree he was cutting onto the beehives he kept she's left with a ramshackle house set amid the piles of junk scrap and salvage her husband collected aimlessly Much as she loved him anyways the realities of running her home with three small children demands she find a helper and fastWhat an amazing well written story this was Spencer created such lush imagery it felt like I was seeing the story rather than reading it I could all but smell the northwestern Georgia woods Eleanor's house lounged in and hear their bees buzzing about the junk heaps that dotted the yard A passage early on in the book stood out for me in how it took something as mundane as carrying firewood and managed to make it visual and sensualHe knelt and loaded his arm with wood good sharp biting edges that creased his skin where his sleeve was rolled back; grainy flat pieces that clacked together and echoed across the clearingMuch of the book is written like this drawing a full picture that's a feast for the senses When I can hear each bootstep and see the motes dancing in the sunbeams it heightens my sense of immersion and turns the volume up on the emotionsAnd emotion this book has Both Elly and Will are drenched in feelings both for each other and about themselves They've come from dreadful unloving childhoods Will growing up in indifferent orphanages and foster homes and Elly living in a windowless house with her pious grandparents castigating her for being born out of wedlock and are both learning to value themselves They surprise each other a bit I think with how they seem to balance each other out Will gets in Elly a rare friend and lover but also a bit of the mother he never had Elly gets from Will a friend and lover as well sure but she also gets needed confidence and a challenge to overcome her fearsThey work through their insecurities weathering childbirth WWII and a murder trial along the way to come out stronger healthier people in the end It's a slow moving slow burning sort of romance They're continually growing together as the story progresses rather than feeling an immediate passion which they then actively resist It's an organic story of two people weathering the challenges life can throw at people and coming out stronger because of itIt was a delight to read from start to finish I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves a story of two broken souls healing each other and a story that doesn't end with the I love you or the I do

    Many years ago I was a LaVyrle Spencer fan and I read lots of her books I just came across this one which I had not read before and wondered if the magic was still there after all these years It was This author's main talent was always for the way she wrote her characters making them real with human needs and mistakes As they struggle to make their own fairy stories come true they make the reader laugh and cry with genuine emotion This is possibly one of her best books and I loved it If you want to have your emotions let loose for a while grab a box of tissues and sit down with this delightful book You will not be sorry
