I finally caught up with this book this morning. I really enjoy reading this character " Ida" much as Mick.. It quite inspired me to see what she did help to save Spring Creek.
Kathleen L. Maher

Ida Mueller has big ideals and high standards, forged by her godly German upbringing in the formerly sleepy town of Spring Creek, Texas. The railroad boom has changed her landscape, but not her heart. She still longs for the innocence of a bygone day, even if that naïve era was only two years prior. Since her mother’s death, Ida grows big shoulders to carry heavy yokes, like the cooking, cleaning, helping, and one other thing. She adopts the way her mother championed causes, like a 19th Century
I’ve never been to Texas. My only knowledge of it is half-seen TV shows back in England, with rich oil tycoons and houses that would hold a fair-sized village. Okay, I know the TV shows weren’t real, and I didn’t really watch them. But Texas?

Janice Thompson’s Spring Creek Bride shows me a very different historical place, and I loved it. The small town of Spring Creek is changing and growing. The newcomers aren’t necessarily welcome. The countryside is losing out to the mighty train. And Ida Muel

The town of Spring Creek is changing as the railroad brings new businesses, some less than savory, to town. Young Ida has never really though of marrying until she meets Mick. The only problem: he is the new owner of a soon-to-be-built gambling hall and she is a devout Christian.

As tensions rise in town, Ida stirs the pot by trying to organize the church members to go and talk to Mick. Unfortunately a few others in town aren't as peaceful minded as Ida and her church.

When things go bad, Mick f
I liked this book, however, it was VERY religiously based. The main focus of the book was to get this guy to come to Christ. I liked it, and I would read more from this author. But it just wasn't my favorite. From the book;Can't Ida Mueller walk to town without being harangued by rowdy railroad men?

I enjoy reading all the books that Janice writes.
I laugh and I cry with every book. The books
are all true to life everyday happenings.
Great read.
I wondered how this story could end up the way it did.

Mick Bradley is building a gambling hall in Spring Creek, Texas

Ida Mueller is against it and "prays" about it while putting her actions ahead of really hearing what God may be telling her.

There is a Nellie DeVries in the story. I laugh as someone with my last name is in a book and she's a saloon girl.
I loved it. The characters were very memorable and the tension between the two main was fantastic! What I didn't like, however, was that I thought the female character was too stubborn and demanding! Gah!! Oh well haha!

This was a great little book set in a small town in Texas in 1902. It gives us some insight into how becoming a booming railroad town brought with it both curses and blessings.
An amazing story of a young woman in Texas! I loved the story, excellent characters, amazing setting and plot line! A very wonderful young-adult novel!
Enjoyed the setting, liked the characters. I had fun reading this one.
