Publisher's Summary

Leah Townsend, a recently orphaned heiress, flees Richmond after discovering her fiancé's plot to kill her after their wedding. She needs a safe place to hide, and finds herself accepting a newspaper marriage proposal from a God-fearing young rancher in the Montana territory. But when Leah arrives at the mountain ranch, she learns her intended husband was killed by a grizzly, leaving behind a bitter older brother and a spunky younger sister.
When Gideon Bryant finds a city girl standing in his log cabin, his first thought is to send her back where she came from. He's lost too many people to the wild elements of these mountains - his parents, his wife, and now his brother. His love for this untamed land lives on, but he's determined not to open his heart to another person.
But when an accident forces Leah to stay at the ranch for seven more months, can Gideon protect his heart from a love he doesn't want? Has Leah really escaped the men who seek her life?

Mispronounced words an unfortunate distraction.

I loved the story, however the mispronounced words gave the impression of it being read by a computer. Instead of hearth she kept saying "herth", and there were many other similarly mispronounced words. I did finish the book, and I enjoyed the story very much, the characters were sweet.

Good Clean Godly

how refreshing to listen to a story that I don't have to wade through foul language or other compromises with Christian values. it was an intriguing story with a good outcome and hard to put down.

The Lady and the Mountain Man

The brave story of a young girl overcoming the drawbacks of a rich inheritance. Well and expressively narrated.
