Part of the Ponder This series:

 

Manderley Jessup is having enough trouble squeezing into last summer's dresses, and now her mother expects her to save the family honor? A film crew has invaded her Tennessee hometown to research a duel, and the duelists' descendants, who are still feuding after 200 years. Manderley's one of those descendants. Heartily sick of the rivalry, she decides to do something about it. She approaches Abram Coventry, descended from the opposing duelist, with a marvelous plan. Abram will design buttons as a gift for Manderley's mother.

But a button catastrophe threatens to make the original duel look like a kindergarten squabble. What can Manderley do with those dreadful buttons? Worse, what can she do about the hopeless crush she's developed on Abram?

An absolute delight! Even though Klumpers’s latest addition to her repertoire is a novella, it’s a fully fleshed charming story that satisfies inspirational romance readers. Buttonholed is a feast of southern wit and laugh-out-loud yet tasteful tale of a two-century-long polite feud, the origin of which have been so politely ignored that no one in the small Tennessee community, known equally as Coventryville and Lowellton depending on which side of town you’re on, has never been outed. Until strangers intent on creating a documentary come to town. Their objectivity uproots a whole cellar-full of secrets. Reputation is everything in this little hidebound town; something Manderley Jessop, proud Latimore descendant, realizes needs to be dealt with after hearing the sermon that stuck with her on the sacrifice Christ made in giving up his own reputation to clear ours. With so much family happiness on the line, the time has come to put her own convictions into action and do business w

Love this author's characters. They come to life on the pages so you keep reading to find out what happens. Once you get to the end they are like friends that you want to know more about. The story bring the good out of bad with a lot of faith in Gods plan. A must read book .
