Publisher's Summary

Following the stunning success of her high-spirited debut, Karen Witemeyer delivers this compelling blend of humor and romance. When Adelaid Proctor finds herself stranded in 1883 Texas, she’s hired by a British-born sheep rancher as governess for a daughter still grief-stricken over her mom’s death. As Adelaid gently draws the girl out of her shell of silence, the governess and sheep rancher, at first, resist their mutual attraction. But as a looming standoff draws near, it will either shatter or strengthen their developing romance.

Lovely Story of Life, Faith, and Love

This is such a sweet wholesome story. It's filled with adventure, chivalry, faith, and love. It is truly a feel-good book that reminds me of a "Hallmark" story. It is a Christian romance, so if you are a Christian like me, you will definitely enjoy this book. If you aren't.....I think you will still like the feel-good aspect. Its worth a listen.

Great Story

Why this wonderful title by Karen Witemeyer only received one star is beyond me.
I bought it because of the author and the reviews from Amazon. Also I sought out her web page.
This is a peach of a story with lots of interesting happenings. Disappointments along with surprises for a young miss who thought she was to become the wife of a book peddler, only to discover to her mortification, he had different plans.
But now great excitement is ahead, not to mention true and lasting love.
Set in the Early American West... Texas of course.
An aristocrat wealthy Englishman comes to Texas to set up a sheep ranch.
One little girl who has not spoken a word since the death of her mother. (This is where our heroine comes in)
A villainous uncle and a bit of skullduggery along with a bit of mystery, make this book a great read
If you are a Christian you will love it. If not, well... I think you will find the story lovely. Pure true love and a wonderful experience for the listener
The only thing lacking is graphic sexual scenes. Ahhh What a blessing to behold.
