Book Review The Heart's Frontier by Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith

Book Description:
An exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.
Kansas,1881—On a trip to visit relatives, Emma Switzer’s Amish family is robbed of all their possessions, leaving them destitute and stranded on the prairie. Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first.
Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone’s prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged—do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other’s match?

My Review:
Thanks to Netgalley for my review copy.

This is a good read. Its Amish meets Cowboy. This is what I love about this book its different. I have found amish books seem to follow the same story lines. To me some are becoming predictable and I even get different series confused. Not this book. Its one of the few historical Amish books I have read. The story has the Switzer’s family moving from one Amish community to another and on the way they encounter problems.
After a mishap leaves the family in trouble they come in contact with Luke who is leading his first cattle drive. There paths cross more than once and its interesting how the book plays out.
I love the different characters. There are some secondary characters that try and steal the show at times. This is an interesting book that I really enjoyed. What I love most is the fact the book is different. Great book.
