I adored this book! I picked it up on our Thanksgiving camping trip one evening and literally read it in one sitting. It was a captivating western romance that had me almost feeling like I was watching a movie rather than reading a book. I thought it had great character development and loved that the story alternated between seeing the world from the heroine's perspective to also the hero's. It was also personally interesting for me as the context of the love story is based around the system which was an early form of American adoption, by way of the Orphan Train.
About the Book

Imagine her horror when she discovers that she's to be "delivered," too--as bride to an uncouth miner! But with no return fare, Julia's options are bleak.
What does God have planned for her on the lonesome prairies of Montana?
