I feel that I am being repetitious, however...
... I cannot think of any other words to describe the wonderful, "clean," innocent, historical romances by the talented Barbara Goss.
I recommend any of the books written by Barbara Goss or narrated by the wonderful performance of Garrett L. Whitehead

Could be two books, actually!
Everyone makes mistakes, but not all are ready to deal with their consequences. Silas wasn't ready, but he had to face his past and make things right before he could have a future.
This is a (non-preachy!) Christian, clean romance that I found so sweet! I could partly guess where the story was headed and what had actually happened, but I still found it great fun to follow the characters along. The story of Cassie and Silas was a good lesson on how to stay true to both your heart and what is right - and how to hold your ground when you see things are headed in the wrong direction.
This book can be divided into two archs, one about solving the past and one about solving the present. I found the second part - in particular what happened the day of the counseling - to be unnecessary. The second part of the book wasn't bad by any means, but I think the book would have been able to stand on its own without the added drama. I loved the first part of the book and was a little disappointed by what happened when things started getting back on track - it might have been because I'd finished Mail Order Compromise recently, and seeing a similar event wasn't as impactful.
Garrett Whitehead has a very pleasant voice and clear narration. I had listened to other books from the same author that had been narrated by the same female (Reagan Boggs) and even though she is very talented, it was a nice surprise to listen to the story being told by an equally talented male narrator. Will definitely look forward to listening more from him in the future! I removed a star because - though I'm not sure whether this is a narration or an editing issue - I felt some sentences ran into others. At times a new scene/chapter started without any pause as an indication, so it irked me a little that some characters appeared to teleport or appear out of nowhere!
I asked the author for a free copy of the story in exchange for a review, and I was happily surprised! Barbara Gross writes stories that are usually shorter than others, but that's because she doesn't spend time on nonsense. It's very nice to start and finish a book in the same day, even though I miss the characters a little when it ends.
