    I need a title for my book.

    It's set in 1910 and is about a seventeen year old girl forced into an engagement with an older man. On her farm, in Kansas a young English man comes to stay and the two fall in love and run away to England to marry. Any good title ideas???

    I just started writing my book a few months ago.

    Thought I would be done within months, but so far I only have two chapters written, and they're still in first draft form. Writing is a very humbling experience.
