Product Description

From the Publisher

The news spread like brush fire through the whole county when widower Ancil Drayton announced his intention to start courting Miss Hattie Colfax. She was certainly spirited and delightfully sweet natured, and she'd managed to run her family farm almost single-handedly. But wasn't a twenty-nine-year-old lady farmer too old to catch a husband?

An Irresistable Suitor.

All his life handsome, black-haired Reed Tyler had worked Miss Hattie's farm--and dreamed of one day settling down on his own piece of land with the pretty young woman he'd sworn to marry. Hattie was someone he could tell his hopes and troubles to--someone he looked on as a sister. So he thought, until the idea of Ancil Drayton calling on her made him seethe. Until the night a brotherly peck became a scorching kiss... and Reed knew nothing would bank the blaze--and that his best friend was the only woman he would ever love. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is my 1st book by Ms. Morsi, and beleive you me, it wont be the last.
This is the story of Hattie Colfax and Reed Tyler. They are both real good friends despite that Hattie is older than Reed for 5 years. She's by NO means your typical beauty or pretty at all, but she has a golden heart and an independence enviable by any women in her time. She owns a farm and Reed works the farm until he gathers enough money to buy it for himself and his fiancee.
Hattie is now 29 and an "old spinster" until Ancil Drayton's wife dies leaving him with 7 children and a farm to tend. So he decides to court Hattie in order to gain a wife, a mother for his children and maybe a little something extra (hey I cannot give the whole story away).
Tyler learns this and is appaled by Hattie going out with old Drayton. He doesnt know what to do now and his feelings as confusing as they could have gotten. And to makes matters worse he teaches Hattie how to do somethign called "peach" which, needless to say, they both like more than they should have!
With some great secondary characters spicing up this terrific novel, the Hattie and Reed's story is fantastic and a treat to read.
They must overcome the obstacles that come their way, but most of all, they must overcome their own ideas of what they want for the rest of their lives and see if what they feel for each other is love or they simply care a little too much for each other.
The story has nothing that is unrealistic. The events that occur throughout the book were things that could have happened back in their day, but I think that only enriches the book. The villans are not that bad and i think one could relate to any of the characters one way or the other.

I read alot of romantic fiction and this has to be one of my all time favorite books ever. The characters are so real, so richly written, its hard to believe they do not exist, except in the gifted mind of Pamela Morsi. This book touched my heart so profoundly, that I find myself re-reading it over and over. The heroine is no beauty, except on the inside, she doesn't have much experience with men, and has few expectations. Her best friend, the handsome Reed Tyler, her neighbor, the younger man who is engaged, loves her like a sister. That is, until, another man comes a courting Miss Hattie. It is then that Reed is forced to confront his real feelings for her. The love scenes are funny, sensual and tender. I wept with joy. A real keeper, a jewel, a gem of a book. One of the best romantic books ever. Simply put, it is a classic that must be read by anyone who enjoys this genre.

Miss Hattie Colfax and Mr. Reed Tyler are a wonderful match. Their friendship which blossoms into love is enjoyable from beginning to end. Their story is filled with passion, laughter and love. Every time I read it (and I've read it MANY times), I find myself caught in their story again, sharing their tears of pain and happiness.
If you prefer romance novels whose main characters are realistic and captivating, you need look no further than "Courting Miss Hattie." I have read most of Ms. Morsi's work and although I have enjoyed the rest, this one by far is my favorite. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Courting Miss Hattie has all the main ingredients I look for in a book. You have believability in the characters, laughter, heartache, tears, and the coming togather of two diverse characters.
Morsi captures your heart and imagination
from the first chapter. She gives us a heroine that is ordinary and proves how extrodinary she really is and a man that grows into his manhood and love for Miss Hattie as the book progresses.

I fell in love with her creations and hated turning the final page. I hope she publishes more books along this style.

Format: Paperback
Much of this book is traditional romance. Boy knows girl, girl knows boy but both are clueless that they are meant for each other. What is different about this book is that it takes on ageism as Miss Hattie is several years older than Reed. It's also set around the turn of the century, a time that hasn't been done to death in romantic fiction.
The book's a little slow to get started but the last hundred pages are hard to put down. Not a keeper but a good read.
