Publisher's Summary

The Civil War took everything from Ruth Stallings except for her grandmother and sisters. Now without a home or funds, they take the White River as far as it will go and end up in Painted Bluff, Arkansas, a town populated mostly by men out looking for a wife. Sheriff John Powell wants nothing to do with the pretty women or the trouble they bring, especially when a gang of marauders show up looking for Ruth. Can Ruth and John overcome their differences and find love?

Enjoyable Listen

Narration - Margo Trueblood, narration was pretty good, production could be improved. There's some duplicate "takes" throughout the production and weird breath sounds, but the narration voice and her character voices are good!

The story was enjoyable! It takes place after the civil war and some bands of misfit soldiers are still wandering about. Ruth hears gun shots while out hunting and finds that one of these groups of men have attacked her home, ransacked, robbed and lit it on fire. She goes after them, gets her families money back, but not without some altercation and now, she's on the run with her sisters and grandma.

They end up in a small mountain town to make a fresh start and the group of beautiful women quickly have the entire town smitten, including the sheriff!

Ruth seems to have disaster upon disaster following her and she's really turned her back on her faith. Sheriff John, makes it his mission to help her find her way back to God.

There are lots of twists and turns, some OMG moments, and a very sweet romance. A very enjoyable listen.

I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

another wonderful christian book

I loved this book. two stubborn people who finally fall in love...the sherriff and the gal who came to town with her grandmother and two younger sisters. grandmother has fallen in love with man her age and they get married after helping the gal and the two sisters.....they had escaped with their lives after marraders killed their parents and burned their house to the ground at civil war time. book has twists and turns as marraders follow them to arkansas to wreak revenge... the gal has a prickley tough exterior while housing a soft heart of pure gold. book has a few other great surprises along with the trials of trying to stay alive. narrator had a lot of breath sounds, but I got used to them as story progressed...all in all I highly recommend this book and can't wait to listen to the next book in series. and yahoo no illicit sex.
