Great Lakes Romances
Great Lakes Romances

Fayette—A Time to Love, Eighth in the series of Great Lakes Romances® (Set in Fayette, Michigan, 1868.) The new iron-smelting town of Fayette, Michigan held no promise for sixteen-year-old Lavinia McAdams. The moment she arrived, she took an instant disliking to its muddy streets, acrid smoke, and dirty furnace men. The sooner she could return to her hometown in Canada, the better. Then Huck Harrigan came along to challenge her thinking and soften her iron will. Could she really find happiness in this raw, new town with a “pig iron” Irishman from across the bay?

Disgusted with the contentiousness of the laborers, Lavinia turned to go, bumping headlong into an auburn-haired young woman and knocking her basket clear from her hand. Eggs flew out and smashed to the ground.
The girl’s wide-set blue eyes flashed with anger. “Now there’s a fine kettle of fish you’ve put me in! And how am I to pay for my washboard, pray tell?”
“I’m so sorry!” Lavinia exclaimed, picking up the basket and returning it to the owner whose lovely face was marred only by her scowl. “It was all my fault. We’ll put your washboard on my father’s account.”
“And who might your father be?” she asked skeptically.
