Synopsis:Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts.
Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she'd been deceived about her intended groom, she's now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she'll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony-until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy's father.
Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony's wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?

This is a good addition to a fun series. Even though this book is a part of a series it can be read as a stand alone and you will not feel lost. There are a number of topics in this book to keep the story moving along. For example the story has mail-order brides, custody issues, discrimination as well as orphans and widows.There is also romance and adventure involved. Plenty of things going on to keep you turning the pages to see what is going to happen next. I really liked the characters in this book and found myself pulling for Silas and Kate to work things out and become a family. The author did a good job with the settings so you can really see and feel what is happening. A nice ending to a good series.
