About the book: When Hannah Cartwright meets Grant, a disreputable-looking wrangler, she's determined to keep him from committing two orphan train children to hard labor on his ranch. How long will she have to play the role of schoolmarm before she gets a chance to rescue the children? Prudence, the town dressmaker, has designs on Grant. Will she succeed in securing his affections? As Grant struggles to run the ranch and raise six orphans, he finds love making tracks to his heart. Will he be caught in a web of deceit or lassoed by the love of one good woman?

What I think about the book: This is a really wonderful book about the aspects of raising orphan children, as a single father. Grant is a young adult who is wiser than his age and takes on the responsibilities of raising children who have no place else to go. He does the best that he can do especially when there are road blocks in his way. Hannah, is a very determined young adult herself who does what she thinks is best for the children who have been orphaned. Then there is Prudence, oh Prudence. What to say about her....I guess you will just have to read about her in the book. I highly recommend this book. I had a hard time putting it down and now wish I had read the first two books in this series, and look forward to reading more of her work.

You can purchase this book at right now for $7.98

I received this book from Barbour Publishing for the sole purpose of doing a honest review.
