In the high desert town of Frenchman’s Bluff, Idaho, Felicia Kristoffersen has set out to create a future for herself that is better than her painful past. Alone in the world with only her faith to sustain her, she must prove herself as this tiny community’s new school teacher. She cannot, must not, fail. But, there are those who never wanted her there to begin with. Five years after the death of his wife, local merchant Colin Murphy cares about just one thing: raising his daughter, Charity. Colin wants to give her the educational advantages he never had. The new schoolmarm’s inexperience doesn’t sit well with him, and if this teacher up and marries like the last one did, Charity’s heart will be broken once again. A woman who hasn’t known love. A man who lost the love he had. In the midst of the wide, sage-covered plains, each is about to discover that life’s bitterest circumstances truly can work together for good.

I loved this book and I think it was because the main character is a teacher! The romance is great as well – two unlikely damaged people find each other. The male main character has a daughter that is so engaging and loveable – I just wanted to reach through the pages and squeeze her!
I kept finding myself holding my breath and routing for the Miss K. She was so determined to do a good job with her first real teaching job, and she had some people actively working against her success. So, she has an uphill battle, and teaching is a tough job under the best of circumstances.
The setting of small town Idaho in 1881 adds to the interest for me. I enjoy historical fiction for the same reason I enjoy the Amish novels – that is, they are clean, old fashioned romances. Keep them coming!
