”…an intriguing story about how true love can overcome the trials and evil in life.  The characters are engaging and realistic and pull  you quickly into their stories…the phrase “a page turner” is trite     and overused in book reviews, but it is an apt description of     Burnett’s compelling story.” –Mary S.

  “David Burnett has done an amazing job writing this beautiful love story.” - Len Phelps”

Ten years had passed since they joined hands at the high altar of the old abbey church, ten years since they were hand fasted, engaged to be married. It had been ten years in which Katherine had finished college, completed med school, and become a doctor. For ten years they had not seen each other, had not spoken, and had not written.
    It was what they had agreed.
    “I’ll find you,” Steven had told her. “In ten years, when we have finished school, when we are able to marry, I’ll find you. Whenever you see a
yellow rose, remember me. Remember I love you.”
    For a decade, she had been waiting, hoping, and praying.
    Today, on her birthday, a vase of yellow roses was waiting when she arrived at home.
    Although the action occurs primarily in New York City, psychologically, the story is set in a small town in Virginia. Change came slowly to the rural South in the nineteen-seventies, and attitudes toward women were most resistant to change. These attitudes threaten to destroy Katherine and her chance for the life for which she yearns. The Handfasting is a story of love: love renewed, a suitor spurned, a vicious attack, and a struggle for healing.
