5.0 out of 5 stars Entirely captivating stories of some of the "ordinary, little people" in history 4 June 2017
By Stephanie Cowell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was immediately engrossed in these few historical periods and wish I could read more of the characters. I loved the shy, good reluctant bridegroom, stammering awfully and five feet tall who really does find someone to love him against all odds and the little Roman boy Angelus leading an escaping charming princess and her party through a swamp in hopes of earning enough to provide for his weak elderly grandmother (who is about 48 years old!). The periods are terribly alive, the storytelling has short glimpses of these people and some others and somehow you feel you have known them a long time and want to see them about. And yet it is wonderful to have them just in these brief times in their lives, the way we often meet people we like immensely, get very involved with their lives for a few days or weeks, and years after, remember them with great fondness!

The Reluctant Groom and Other Historical Stories / by Faith L. Justice
Raggedy Moon Books, 2015 ISBN 9780692544440

If you’ve ever thought of history as boring, you don’t know what you’re missing!
The Reluctant Groom and Other Historical Stories is a collection of four intriguing tales that will move you to tears, renew your faith in true love, inspire bravery in you, and make you think twice about parting with an old antique.
The Reluctant Groom, the first story, portrays a sad, lonely and confirmed bachelor brought back to life by the power of love.
The Bitter Winter reminds us of the heart-breaking events that force peoples to migrate; the sacrifices they make for their families, and the risks they take to ensure their future.
In the third story, The Jar, Faith L. Justice draws attention to the varied and important roles that women have played since the dawn of time, yet are often relegated to a footnote in history.
The final story in the collection, The Angel of the Marshes, highlights the contributions that children have made, frequently shouldering responsibilities like adults and demonstrating creativity and bravery.
The Reluctant Groom and Other Historical Stories will transform you into a historical fiction reader, and a Faith L. Justice fan.
Take the plunge and find your own self in the past!
