BOOK REVIEW: All of her life, Grace Bidwell has longed for children, but now the chances of her dreams coming true are looking slim. Widowed and caring for her elderly father, she struggles to maintain her late husband's farm until she places an ad for a hired hand.
Robert Frasier arrives in town with three pitiful, bedraggled children who have nothing but the tattered clothes on their backs and a load of hurt, pride, and anger. Believing this is divine intervention in her life, Grace welcomes them with open arms. As feelings grow between her and Robert, Grace will have to convince him that she is a woman who can be trusted with his heart.
MY REVIEW: This is book three of Maggie Brendan's Virtues and Vices of the Old West. I have not read the previous two books, but their titles are The Trouble with Patience, and A Sweet Misfortune. I don't know how intertwined the books are with each other, but this book can definitely be read on its own.
I enjoy books about the West in the early days, but this book disappointed me. Not only was it focused only on the romance between Grace and her hired hand, Robert and the potato farm, but there were also a few parts that I did not think needed to be included in the story.
One thing I liked about the book was how readily Grace stepped into the kid's lives and was there for them. And her care for her father, who suffered from an unknown ailment.
I received this book from REVELL per their blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review.
