For Corva Collier, life as a mail-order bride in the quirky town of Haskell, Wyoming is her last chance for escape. She longs for a peaceful life away from the darkness of her past where she can create the paintings that are close to her heart, and where she hopes she can grow to love her husband.
But how do you love a man who was persuaded to marry you against his will?
Franklin Haskell never planned to marry. What woman would want a man who was crippled due to his own arrogance? But when he is offered the chance to help a woman in crisis, he agrees to wed. Corva is so much more than he expected, and when a baseball game gives her the chance to shine, he loses his heart.
But how do you tell a woman you love her when she deserves so much better?
The game of love has never been so hard to play, or so worth winning.

I believe this was a good story but not absolutely sure. It was hard to get a good feel for the characters because of the narration. She probably should consider sticking to more upbeat or kids/young teen books. She might also want to read the book a few times before narrating it. It seemed there were incorrect inflections and 'tone of voice' through the whole book. The only thing worse was when she tried to drop her voice to sound like a man. That was awful.
I really loved the redeemed Franklin.
The baseball game that Corva played in.
Though I hated the voice, I would say Vivian, because she nailed how she sounded in my head. So the voice was perfect.
It made me nervous at the fire.
Yes and no. Yes, because the narrator gave a fantastic rendition of the story. No, because the story is very well written and a joy to sit and read.
Corva was my favorite character. She overcame all trials which came her way and became a much stronger person.
The baseball game.
When Franklin and Corva competed as one in the game.
