Publisher's Summary

Bernadette Havering is a vivacious and independent woman. She knows her mind and never intends to let a man dictate what she should or should not be able to do. In a world where women having a job is frowned upon, she longs for a profession and wants to make history by becoming one of the very first women in the United States of America to gain a law license. But why should she give up a husband and family in order to do so? Can she truly have both?
Edward Grieve has worked hard. He has come from nothing and managed to gain an education, becoming a skilled veterinarian in great demand. But this is not the only thing that makes him unusual. He also believes passionately that women deserve more than they get from men, society, and the law of the land. But will he ever trust anyone enough to explain why?

Strong women prevail!

This series keeps getting better and better. In this book we have Bernadette, a well educated woman who does an experiment to see if the men who write for a bride really would accept her as a lawyer. When Edward, the vet in Ruby Springs responds in a positive way, Bernadette is taken by surprise and finds herself intrigued by this man. Gracey continues to create a town of incredible character. Each couple has their own hurdles and personalities. This one really hits home with me, as a woman who wants the best of both worlds, professionally and at home. Edward proves there are men out there that welcome the well educated woman and believes in her ability to be both wife and working woman. For the times, this is unheard of! But is the beginning of what we have today.

J Scott Bennett continues to breathe wonderful life into these characters, giving them personality and charm.
