When Gidry Chavis returns to his Texas hometown to reconcile with his dying father, he must also face Prudence Belmont, the fiancé he jilted eight years ago with no more than a brief note, a woman who is no longer a gullible girl but a determined grownup with ideas of her own. Pamela Morsi's strong sense of time (the 1890s) and place and lightly realistic humor add to a gentle romance that is pure Americana and purely charming. Roses, streetlights, and a pair of well-matched protagonists combine in this well-written, captivating story of rekindled love that will definitely appeal to Morsi's many fans. Morsi is a Rita award-winning writer and lives in San Antonio.
From the first moment she met her new Texas neighbor, Prudence Belmont was in love. When she was old enough for marriage, Gidry Chavis promptly presented her with an engagement ring, and all her dreams seemed to have come true. But the hellraising Gidry disappeared before the wedding, leaving only a brief note in explanation. "My dear Miss Prudence, I have determined that it is best that we do not wed. Please forgive me and recall me with fondness." Now Chavistown's notorious favorite son is back, wiser, remorseful, sunbrowned and manly. Everyone in town has accepted his transformation to a hardworking town leader - all except Pru. After all, only a man with wicked thoughts could believe that she, the president of the Ladies' Rose and Garden Society, would mail out racy postcards, and only a cad would demand bribes of kisses to keep quiet. If he thinks he can win her love again, he's wrong. Or is he? "My only lover, I am ready to fulfill your every desire, if you will agree to grant my dearest wish...Yours soon to be..."

An Old West Love Story
The story was well written and thought out. The characters did not follow the typical storyline that you expect in a romantic novel, which was nice.
I loved how the 'electric street lights' might destroy the flowers. I can imagine when they first came about that people were worried about such things. Things like this helped to show how the author put some thought into her storyline.
This is the first time I have listened to a Pam Dougherty story. I don't have too many complaints. She had just enough of a change in the voices so I knew who was who.
Just who stole the leg? HAHA!
