About the Book:
It Only Takes an Instant for Love to Strike
Tragedy hits the Allenhouse family on a hot summer night in Ohio when a mother of four vanished. Eight-year-old Vada virtually grew up overnight and raised her three younger sisters while her father lost himself in his medical practice in the basement of their home.
Now, Vada is a grown woman, still making her home with her father and sisters. Her days are spent serving as an errand girl for Cleveland’s fledgling amateur orchestra; her evenings with Garrison Walker, her devoted, if passionless, beau.
Dizzying change occurs the day the Brooklyn Bridegrooms come to town to play the Cleveland Spiders and a line drive wallops the head of a spectator. The fan is whisked to the Allenhouse parlor, and questions swirl about the anonymous, unconscious man.
Suddenly, the subdued house is filled with visitors, from a flirtatious, would-be sports writer to the Bridegrooms’ handsome star hitter to the guilt-ridden ballplayer who should have caught the stray shot. The medical case brings Dr. Allenhouse a frustration and helplessness he hasn’t felt since his wife’s disappearance. Vada’s sisters are giddy at the bevy of possible suitors. And Vada’s life is awakened amid the super-charged atmosphere of romantic opportunity.

I absolutely loved this book! I can’t believe how much I enjoyed this book! I literally read this book in less than two days. This is a historical novel so I was completely captured by just the thought of getting to read this book.
That being said, this book is full of humor, romance, hope, heartache and mystery. It’s a wonderful book for any one to read. Allison Pittman creates characters that transform into life before your eyes. I felt like I was transported back to the 1890’s and it was as if I was Vada herself. I felt every struggle that she went through. Amazing! I love it when a book can do that to me. Among the things that I mentioned this book was full, it’s also full of God’s never ending love and His wonderful mercy.
I think that Allison Pittman did a tremendous job with creating a heart capturing story that pulls you in, keeps you hooked, and makes you crave more. I can’t give this book anything lower than a 5 star praise! It just wouldn’t be right! Well done, Allison, on creating a story that is life like, entertaining, and perfect for that relaxing day at home with a book!
