A Tailor-Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer, Bethany House, 2010
Jericho ‘J.T.’ Tucker doesn’t see it that way. As far as he’s concerned, Hannah’s chosen career has the ability to incite jealousy and practice avarice. He loathes all the showy details which contribute to vanity. Decent women wear plain, practical dresses devoid of pretty frippery.
He believes people should look at inner beauty versus outer beauty, although he admits he’s never looked twice at a plain or thick-waisted woman.
Hannah needs success for her new business. J.T. has experience with vanity and doesn’t want the dress shop to succeed. They are on opposite sides of the street with an unbreechable wall between them. Until J.T.’s sister orders a new dress…
You should read this book for the entertainment value alone… or if you ever wondered what the Bible says about dressing in finery. Either way, you’ll be blessed.
What about you? Do you like frills and trim? Or do you need them for confidence?
