Madeline Brewster inherited her father’s estate when he died. She now owns almost the entire town Plum City. She feels that at the age of thirty-two, she is getting too old to find true love and decides to hatch a plan to learn the ways of intimacy between a man and a woman. Only she has no clue that she just may lose her heart and her freedom as well.
Teague O’Neal has lost much in his past. The war has changed him inside, and he now feels empty. Wandering from town to town taking various jobs to survive; he takes one to fatten his wallet but he soon finds he must tell the truth. He is not sure that his heart is able to love again, but he feels he is starting to lose his heart to Madeline.
The sparks between Maddie and Teague are instantaneous. When Maddie reveals her plans after saving Teaque from a hanging, it takes him by surprise but he finds himself saying yes. As their feelings take on a life of their own, they find themselves in a battle for their freedom from a group of townspeople who wish to be in control and rid the town of the likes of Madeline Brewster.
Awesome! This is such a wonderful book. The characters are more than three dimensional; they just leap off the pages. The story flows as smooth as melted butter. Mystery and romance are a perfect fit within the pages of The Education of Madeline. When I finished, I was sad and hoped for a story about the secondary couple, Michah and Eppie. This reader is stoked to learn that they will have their own story! You do not want to miss out on this one!
