Cottonwood 1875. Out from under her domineering mother and into an apartment above her workplace, Maggie Taylor finally blossoms into the woman she feels God wants her to be. She revels in her independence and doesn't want any sort of entanglement with a man.
Forced by his father to leave England, Sinjon Lytton arrives in Cottonwood only to find he's to work as a stable hand. The only good thing about the town is the beautiful woman with the golden hair he meets the first day.
Maggie doesn't feel any delight about the man who seems so happy to be hired as her driver. She denies the tingling the touch his hand brings her, too busy dealing with living on her own to admit her growing attraction to Sinjon.
Maggie's mother would love nothing more than to see them married. Maggie worries if their faiths are too different to get what her heart desires. Sinjon wants what Sinjon wants and nothing is going to stand in his way.
When all options seem wrong, can they learn to trust God and see that he will make a way? Even when it seems impossible?

My favorites are historical novels. I hate when I purchase a book and then find it is full of filthy language and/or explicit sexual stuff
I loved the story and that it centered on having a relationship with Christ.
The entire story was great. I'd enjoy another in the series.
When Maggie refused to accept St John's marriage proposal.
If they wanted an English character, they should have used a narrator that could speak with the English accent.
yes I would recommend to a friend. It has a pretty good story line and I enjoy getting lost in a story. It kept going and was very good at taking you to the time and place in history in which it was written.
How Magi had to chose if she was going to put God first or the man she loved first.
She did a good job on the voices. My favorite was Magodonlina's mother. She made me laugh several times with the way she just brought the character to life. I also believe she did a good job portraying Magi in this story her young innocence.
It made me laugh several times. Also it took me for a loop when Magi got hurt.
I enjoyed the first book in the cottonwood series a little more only because there was a little more suspense in the story compared to this one. But it was enjoyable non the less and I look forward to the next book in the series coming out on audio.
