ACFW Book of the Year Award winner Kim Vogel Sawyer is acclaimed for her soul-stirring fiction. In this enthralling tale, schoolmarm Edythe Amsel arrives in 1882 Nebraska with lofty goals. Soon her teaching methods—and her views on women’s rights—ruffle feathers. Only Joel Townsend speaks in support of the teacher who’s won the affection of his nephews. But when Miss Amsel reveals her deepest beliefs, he can no longer defend her—even if she’s stolen his heart.

“[A] first-rate, stand-alone Christian historical prairie romance …” (Booklist)
Courting Miss Amsel was a delightful story and the narrator was fantastic. She had a different voice for each character and I love it when a narrator does this. I could picture each character in my mind just by the way the narrator changed her voice. Looking for more audio books with Laurie Birmingham as narrator.
I haven't read the print version,but I am sure I would have enjoyed putting my personal spin on how the characters may have looked,their mannerism and speech patterns..
When she bravely risked her life to save a student.
No I haven't.. I enjoyed the narration however.
Well no, but I didn't want it to end.
I love the strength of dedication , moral christian character of the young teacher and her friend in this story. They made wise decisions for the most part based on God's words.
