Publisher's Summary

It's 1863, and schoolteacher Olivia Owens believes education should be a top priority in the newly established settlement of Good Springs. Between planning lessons and helping out on her family's homestead, Olivia doesn't have time for Gabriel McIntosh's charming advances. When the council denies her request to build a schoolhouse, Olivia must challenge their ruling and teach private lessons - all while hiding frequent bouts of word blindness (dyslexia). If the council knew the new teacher couldn't always read, they wouldn't allow Olivia to teach anymore.
As a carpenter, Gabe McIntosh is working hard to help build the settlement of Good Springs, and once his land is granted, he begins constructing his own house. When Olivia discovers he plans to share it with her, she guards her heart from him. But Gabe is determined to win her affection and figure out what she's hiding.

Great book

Olivia wants to teach the children and wants the town people to realize school (education) is a very important part of a new settlement. She's teaching private lessons because the council will not build a school.
Gabe is determined to win her hand and wants to find out what she's hiding.
The different things they overcame shows a lot about what kind of people they were.
This is a great book that you will enjoy listening to. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed it.
I think the narrator did a very good job.
I received an this audio from the author and was not required to write a favorable review.
