Virnie White is the new school teacher, and Conor Russell is the father of one of her new students. She sees some of herself in his daughter, Rachael, and knows that one of the reasons she's come to town is to give this motherless girl some love and guidance.

I really liked this story and at the same time I was fustraighted with the characters. Virnie White a pretty young lady comes out west to be the best teacher she can be and ends up butting heads with Conor Russel who believes pretty is weak. The first half of the story Virnie gets attached to Rachel ( Conor's daughter) and teaches her some domestic skills. In doing so Virnie shows Conor that pretty doesn't equal weakness. Then Virnie is somehow fighting with herself about thinking she's not good...more

Sweet characters, good story line. Great christian values of love, acceptance and dependence on God for our sense of worth and strength. While I found Virnie frustrating, I could readily understand her reluctance to leave her hurts behind and accept love. Her fear caused her to push everyone away, thinking it would be better than disappointing them. Connor and his little girl Rachael cause her to reconsider the walls she's built around her heart.
All read.

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...more
