Mary Varrs may be able to grow amazing tomato plants, but she definitely has no artistic abilities at all. Needing an illustrator, so she can get the only job available to a female botanist, she calls on Priscilla Dane Osbourne to draw a picture of her plants. Considering she is down to the wire on this deadline, she doesn't take to kindly to anyone stepping in her way. Zenus Dane's mill has flooded and he needs all the help he can get. When he goes to his aunt to ask for her help, he becomes acquainted with Mary. The unlikely pair soon find themselves together.
I really enjoyed, Masterpiece Marriage, the storyline has many situations and differing personalities all blended together. With that being said I feel like that it made for a very interesting read as well as a big page turner for me. I was so fascinated with everyone's character that before long I reached the end of the book. I loved the interaction between Zenus and Mary and their constant arguing. This book is a must read!
