Publisher's Summary

Cathy Marie Hake, best-selling author of Fancy Pants, delivers a poignant romance set in 1891 Texas. Miss Hope Ladley believes God wants her to cook and clean for grieving widower Jacob Stauffer. But when Jacob hires the cheerful dynamo, he can't imagine the profound effect she'll have on his frightened sister, his motherless daughter, and on his own tender heart - or how much they'll all miss her if she leaves.

Delightful Character

I really enjoyed Hope, who was true to her name. This was quite an uplifting story with lots of information making me want to research German immigrants to that region. I wasn't sure of what religious group they might have been affiliated with (i.e. Mennonite, Lutheran,...?). They probably said and I just missed it. The narrator was quite good too.
