    The book is good, but the narrator is pretty bad. Not enough inflection in her tone and you can hear her swallowing saliva - it's disgusting! I want..Show More »

    Award-winning author Lauraine Snelling continues the story of Ruby Torvald in book two of her Dakotah Treasures series. Ruby's most recent boarder at the Dove House is schoolteacher Pearl Hossfuss. Avoiding an arranged marriage, Pearl has deserted her home in Chicago to teach in Little Missouri. There she has befriended Ruby and fallen for carpenter Carl Hegland. But her father threatens to take her back home. Ruby must turn to God for the strength to stand up to her father.

    Enjoyed it

    I would actually give it a 4.5. Even though you already know where the plot is going, it's fun getting there.

    When Amethyst O'Shaunasy reluctantly travels west to find her nephew, her faith is restored by a group of pioneers and their reliance on God's guidance. Now, with prayers in her heart and a growing interest in a handsome rancher, Amethyst has no wish to leave.

    Very slow and not much action

    This moved really slow and did not hold my interest. All of the books in this series could have been done in one and been great.
