With the mortgage due and funds scarce, Madge Morgan can't afford distractions. Especially not from Judd Kirk, her sister Louisa's meek tutor and—according to their mother's plans—suitor. Madge's focus is on her housekeeping job…little knowing Judd's connection to her employer, or his real reason for coming to Golden Prairie.
At last, Judd has found the man who swindled his mother. Yet if he seeks revenge, he risks losing the one thing he wants even more: a woman with faith enough to rekindle his own. A woman with strong values and a gentle
heart. A woman like Madge.
Thanks to Net Galley for my review copy. I really enjoyed this story. We see Madge working hard to try to save her family home after her fathers death. Her oldest sister has health issues and her younger one is quite shy. Her mother has hired a tutor for Lousia who happens to be Judd. Judd is hiding something from them and that is the real reason he came to Golden Prairie. The book is set during the great depression and I found it interesting to see how this part of Canada was affected. I love Madge's fighting spirit and her desire to save the family to the point of thinking without her they couldn't do anything. Judd also has his secrets which threaten to cause problems also. I love how the book played out. I look forward to more in this series. Part of the charm is the era and the fact its a small rural area. There is so much more I would like to say about the story but I don't like giving any of the story away. A good read.
