While Love Stirs

After graduating from Fannie Farmer's School of Cookery in 1910, Charlotte Gregory is ready to stir things up. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel, lecture, and give cooking demonstrations on the very latest kitchen revolution--the gas stove--and certainly doesn't mind that the gas company has hired the handsome Lewis Mathis to perform at her lectures. Lewis encourages her work, especially her crusade to introduce fresh, appetizing, nutritious food to those convalescing in hospitals. But young hospital superintendent Dr. Joel Brooks is not convinced any changes should be made--especially by this outspoken young woman.

When Charlotte and Joel are coerced into planning a fund-raising gala for the hospital, will this combustible pair explode?

Fan favorite Lorna Seilstad is back with a breezy, lighthearted love triangle that will keep readers guessing. Attention to historic detail adorns the timeless story of a young woman looking for true love and making her way in a rapidly changing world.

Book Review by Blanche Mancuso

While Love Stirs is book two of the Gregory Sisters books. Lorena Seilstad weaves a great story about Charlotte Gregory. There is never a dull moment when it involves Dr. Brooks and Charlotte. While Love Stirs is a must, must read. There is plenty of the right amount of romance and intrigue in this great novel. I could not stop reading it. I loved all the ideas that Charlotte came up with. I was not the only one as Dr. Brooks liked the ideas as well. This world that the author spun was a nice one. It helped tell the story.
