From USA TODAY best-selling author Lacy Williams comes a story of second chances and first love.
The spinster schoolmarm makes a match....
Teacher Sarah Hansen has always wanted a family of her own. But a cowboy is the last man she'd consider - especially one who humiliated her in their childhood schoolroom. Oscar White is back in her life, and all grown up. He's different than she remembers, but that doesn't mean she can trust him.
When three motherless girls are shunned by the community, Sarah and Oscar are the ones who step up to take on their care. As they work together, Sarah discovers that Oscar isn't afraid of hardship - and that he makes quite a family man. Can the soft heart Sarah has been hiding tame the wrangler?

Say something about yourself!
The narrator did an excellent job with this sweet historical Western romance. The narrator's voice was pleasing and had nicely distinctive voices for male female and child characters.
The character development in this book was quite good. Sarah and Oscar we're very likeable characters, and I felt like I really got inside their heads. Also, the children Cecilia, Lucy, and Velma all had nicely distinct personalities. They were also adorable. The book had a nicely satisfying ending and a thrilling climax before that. My main complaint with a book with that it took too long for the two main characters to say their feelings for each other, so there was unnecessary misunderstanding and heartache. Sarah and Oscar did have a lot of issues for each of them making it difficult to trust anyone, so it was reasonable for the story to have such slow relationship development. Still, I prefer it if the relationship moved more quickly. The audiobook kept my attention very well. I do like how heartwarming the book was and the large number of historical details. I also appreciate how gently Oscar trained horses. He slowly gained the horse's trust and never forced the horse to do anything it was not comfortable with.
I recommend this book for fans of sweet Western historical romance.
