My Review:
I enjoyed this book. I love historical and this was another good read. As Julia travels to Lonesome Prairie shes reads dime novels on the wild west. She finds out that the novels are nothing like the real west. She has a bond with the girls in her care as she to is an orphan. I enjoyed how Julia cared for the girls and felt for her when she had to say goodbye to them. When she finds out shes been sold to a miner this causes lots of problems. She turns to Issac the circuit preacher for help. Add a couple of well intentioned sisters, the accidental death of Issac's mentor which starts a chain of events you have a good story. I also found it good how simple folk can sometimes have very profound insights that more well educated people completely miss.
If you like Historical romance I think you will enjoy the book.
