    • If you enjoyed Lasting Impressions by Tamera Alexander, Maid to Match by Deeanne Gist, or Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland by Roseanna White you will love Love in Three Quarter Time by Dina Sleiman.This book had me laughing and tearing up, and at many times simultaneously. Constance “Gingersnap” Cavendish has been in love with Robbie Montgomery since she first saw him at his plantation in Virginia. At one time she thought he loved her too. After all, they were practically engaged.Then, [...]


    • Dina Sleiman whisks readers to old Virginia, when Thomas Jefferson resided at Monticello and Charlottesville was considered a frontier town. Sleiman refers to the novel as "Scarlett O'Hara meets Jane Austen" in her historical notes. There are definitely elements of both throughout the plot. "Love in Three Quarter Time" is easier and lighter reading than an Austen novel, but the dance scenes and early 1800s setting are elements dear to Austen enthusiasts. Constance Cavendish has the spunk and for [...]


    • Intrigued by the depth of historical detaileven touches the influence of Deism during this period. Jefferson and Franklin were Deists as well as other of our founding fathers. I don't recall Deism mentioned in many or any novels of this genre. I really enjoy reading Christian fiction set in the 18th and 19th centuries and appreciate these 'overlooked' details.

    • My review for: Love in Three-Quarter TimeBy  Dina L. SleimanI was swept away by this book. Love in Three-Quarter Time is a well written book that makes you want to dance. I, personally, do not dance. I only have awkward square dancing in my past. Reading about Constance and her family was like a breath of fresh air during this crazy holiday season. I truly enjoyed each scene with Constance and Robert Montgomery. They had me smiling and at times, laughing out loud. This story truly shows the imp [...]

    • This book was great. I won a copy several months back on a blog and just got around to reading it recently. I never know quite what to say about a book or explain why I like or didn't like it, but the one thing I really can say that I noticed in this book was the great witty dialogue. Several scenes stood out in my mind, including but not limited to the conversation at the dinner party at the Jefferson's.


    • The character development was top notch. It was so easy to get swept up in the culture and history of this great read- enjoy the twists this ride will take you on!


    • God Works Among Believers In His TimeDani has given a powerful glimpse into the way God works while bring Virginia to life.

    • I love dancing. So this book appealed to me for that and in the write up it says it was written in the style of Deanne Gist. While I like Deanne Gist, I feel Dina L. Sleiman has a style all on her own. Her characters were both loveable, well developed, and funny. I found myself rooting for Lorimer even though it is obvious her heart belongs to Robert. I am glad they were able to clear up their misunderstanding in the end. I also hope the ending of the book takes wings for a sequel about Lorimer. [...]


    • Lovely lively love storyA story filled with difficulties, but with the help of the Holy Spirit, every one finds a way through tangled emotions and events in post Jefferson Virginia. I was even led to a virtual tour of Monticello. Good story.
