A unique and 'engaging' romance!
In Left at the Altar, author Margaret Brownley pens a timeless tale of love and forgiveness in the Wild West town of Two-Time Texas where love ran deep and so did disagreements. Set during an era in history before many towns in the West had standardized time-keeping—guaranteed chaos, missed trains, and worse. So be prepared to lose all track of time reading this wonderfully intriguing, fascinating, and engaging romance!
The people of Two-Time, Texas, are fed up with running on different times thanks to a long-running feud between the town’s two stubborn jewelers who each insist on having the correct time. The wedding of their children Tommy Farrell and Meg Lockwood is supposed to bring an end to this division, bringing one time to Two-Time. However, when Tommy stands up Meg at the church, Meg’s father is furious and has a hefty breach-of-promise lawsuit served to Tommy, further dividing the town.
Grant Garrison, a lawyer from Boston, reluctantly decides to stay a while in this cantankerous town to honor his recently deceased sister who loved the place. The first two times Grant meets the jilted bride were under rather embarrassing situations for the poor gal, but something about Meg captivates him. When Grant is hired to defend the groom from the lawsuit and the case comes before the court, he has to remind himself who he is representing when his feelings for the feisty but forlorn Meg grows. What will be the outcome of the case? Can this town ever find peace and if so, will the cost be worth it? Will Grant and Meg remain lonely or will ‘everything be made beautiful in its time’?
