      In Blaineton, during a pre-Civil War America, Maggie is still paying for her sin of marrying the son of her father’s business rival. Though her husband and father of her two daughters died ten years before, Maggie is still estranged from her pompous brother Samuel, though she tries to heal the breach.

      This is not really my type of book. It is quite preachy, but the story flowed nicely and the main characters are unconventional for their era. Again, I have a problem with poor editing and formatting. I find it just so off-putting that I nearly gave up on a few occasions. Anyhow, I am sure the book will interest some people, and some others not.

      The story is set in the town of Blaineton in pre-Civil War America. The heroine is independent-minded widow Maggie who runs a rooming-house, and is itching for greater female emancipation.

      I'm not a big fan of Christian fiction, so I was a bit wary of reading Saint Maggie at first. It didn't take long for the characters and period details to draw me in,though.

Maggie's diary notes helped develop her character, too. I was pleased to find that though religion was a large part of the story, it was not at all [...]

      A strange mix of underground railroad, religion,the Bible, a boardinghouse, a murder mystery, and sex. Although everything was pulled together by the end, it was just strange reading. I felt like she threw everything she knew about the era into the book!

      I love Maggie, someone to look up to. I look forward to a sequel with Eli as a main character. Only downfall, it was too short.
