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?
