The Cowboy Tutor by Linda Ford is a Christian, historical romance. I saw the cover and a short description and decided I needed to request it from NetGalley. I am glad I did not read the longer description, which would have been more aware of the Christian aspect of the story, which I am not always fond. However, in Linda Ford's case, she make the character's religion so much a part of their lives that it does not come across as forced or instructional, which is often the case in Christian ficti ...more
Review: The Cowboy Tutor by Linda Ford
The line of books really fit this book Harlequin Love Inspired Historical. The title also fits well. I enjoyed The Cowboy Tutor that is set in the great depression era. Which a lot of people are now struggling with some of the same problems.

Madge lives with her mom and two sisters. Madge was a tomboy who followed her father and learned from him skills. So when her father was died she took over the support of her family. She let the bank have most of
Madge is the middle daughter and with her father dead and a horrible drought and bad economic times she is the one keeping the family a float and trying to keep the mortgage paid each month so they don’t lose there home. Madge goes to pay the banker and finds there is not enough money and she soon finds out why. Her mom has hired a tutor for her older sister with hopes of him becoming her sisters husband.

Judd is after revenge for his family. He take the job tutoring Louisa thinking it’s the pe
The Deal: Madge Morgan has been struggling to support her family ever since her father died. She does this mostly by taking in other people's laundry, but in the years following the big depression of 1929, few people have enough money to pay for such services and she's struggling to pay the mortgage.

She doesn't need distractions, but these come in the form of Justin, a young man Mrs. Morgan hires to be Madge's sister Louisa's tutor - and if all goes well, her suitor as well. Justin is well edqca
I really should have written this review two months ago, but it keeps getting away from me. This was my first experience reading a LIH through my Kindle Fire (thanks to NetGalley) and it was great. I am completely impressed with this book and have added the author to my lists to keep an eye on the future.

Judd is a great character that had me from page one. It's amazing to me how even though this is a depression era type novel, it can truly relate to more present day things in a way. I read this
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 M ...more
I enjoy reading depression era stories. Reading about the very realistic struggles that families faced, and the strength of character it took to overcome dire circumstances. This story was no different. A story of young woman, working to save her home after the death of her father. Her older sister is ill, and her little sister is very shy. Their mother hires a tutor for the littlest girl, Louisa. The tutor, Judd has secrets of his own – trying to find the man who took his mother’s money.

I was a little learrery at this one from the beginning, I love to read Romance. However, I am not to into the way to mush stuff. But as I really started to get in to The Cowboy Tutor. One of the first this I started thinking of, “Men” lol. It is just that in this story the main charters’ trys to lie and everyone knows how those turn out right. Need I say more on that one? Let’s put it this way, there is a lot of hard work and determination in this boo

A well written book is a thing to be cherished. A well told story is a thing to be admired. Without a doubt Ms Ford was able to do both with this Inspirational Historical Romance. The plot was engaging and easy to follow. The characters were layered and complex as well as understanding and likeable.

Filled with faith and hope, this is one that I can honestly say touched me.
I really enjoyed this book. I could identify with Madge as the hard working daughter in her family. I enjoyed reading her journey, and her realization that her family could survive without her. A really enjoyable read.
The story was good, but all this talking about God taking care of the problems doesn't help solve them in my opinion.
Thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for the preview
This was a really good book. I loved the character's interaction. I want to read more on the series Three Brides and Three Cowboys.

Linda Ford grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head—often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted ten and lived (at times, endured) the dream.

Writing first took her to non-fiction human-interest articles for newspapers and
