Publisher's Summary

Mistaken identity leads to romance, laughter, and second chances in this inspirational historical romance.

The Kansas community of Fairland anticipates the arrival of their new minister. Over the past several months, late in 1882, postmistress Grace Cristler has communicated with Reverend Dille via letters, answering his questions about the little town and its members and developing an affection for the man who pens thoughtful missives.

Theophil Garrison grew up under the loving influence of his saintly grandmother, but when Theo's older cousins make plans to rob a train and involve him in the heist, he flees the scene. While the cousins are on the run and out to avenge Theo's duplicity, he comes across a fatally ill traveler - a minister. Seeing a way to evade his troubles, Theo trades identities with the man, dons his fine black suit, carries a Bible, and prays that he'll be accepted as Rufus Dille.

In a short time "ministering" in Fairland, Theo finds himself falling for Grace, stumbling through sermons, but becoming enmeshed in the triumphs and trials of the people in the community. When Theo's true identity is uncovered, what will be left of the wonderful world he has built for himself, Grace, and those in the town who have come to love and accept him?

    "Great Story"

    A well written story without being subjected to filthy language. I wish more authors would tell the story without the use of bad language. Always grateful to find a good author who writes like the great storytellers in the past!

    Story
    "Cozy escapism, great narration"

    This is a charming tale from what feels like a much simpler, more innocent era; the story is predictable but delightful to follow. The narrator reads with obvious affection for all the characters; by the end of the book I felt like they had all become old friends. The story is humorous and loving and has a satisfying redemption theme. The references to the Bible are not heavy-handed; the characters turn to God frequently for guidance, but I think you could thoroughly enjoy the story whether or not you are a Christian. If you are, you will no doubt find lots to relate to here. I appreciated the escape into frontier times; a wonderful break from our current political climate. A nice story with memorable characters.

    "An enjoyable story. A tough narration. :-)"

    I enjoyed this story. Pretty much guessed the ending, but that's ok. So many stories have similar ideas, but this one was different! A nice change.
    I would have enjoyed it more if the older men didn't sound like Granny from the Beverly Hillbilllies, the other men sounded like women, and the main male character didn't sound like an 11 year old boy. it was very hard to picture him as a rough, grown man.
