It is a historical romance set in Georgia, USA before and during World War II. Possibly an odd choice, him having been in prison for killing a prostitute. So, what's his appeal?
My mother's advice to me about men was to marry one who was good at DIY, because he'd save me a fortune. Now, I'm a homeowner and I have to tell you it was excellent advice. Shame I didn't follow it (though he doesn't do too badly). What really appeals about Will Parker (apart from sharing his name with a character from the musical Oklahoma) is how hard and smart he works for the benefit of Elly. He's also fiercely loyal and a good father. Maybe not the ideal choice for a steamy fling, but you couldn't ask for a better husband.
I'm showing my age, aren't I?
