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 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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Much of this book is traditional romance. Boy knows girl, girl knows boy but both are clueless that they are meant for each other. Read morePublished on Nov. 14 2000 by Carol Peterson Hennekens
