    Louise Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the town midwife, but after her daughter Alice died under her care, she refused to assist in another childbirth. So Louise has assumed the work. She also takes care of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's father was lost in World War I. But Louise's principal job is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main source of income. One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger, a man who has taken refuge in an old cabin in the woods nearby....

    Enjoyable but don't expect great writing

    The Publisher’s Statement is somewhat “off”. The main character’s name is Rachel, not Louise. She learns the strangers identity before he leaves his..Show More »

    Charlotte Tucker was raised in small-town Minnesota, where the only real company was the people who came to her Aunt Louise's boarding house. Several years later, Charlotte is a young woman and thirsty to get out of her hometown and see the world. She jumps at the opportunity to take a room on John Grant's ranch in Sawyer, Oklahoma, to begin a new career.

    World War II has ended, and everyone is pursuing peacetime's bright promise with fresh energy and hope. Newly-arrived in a small Wisconsin town, Christina Tucker now dares to chase her long-cherished dreams: put her wartime nursing skills to use and reconnect with country life. But helping a shell-shocked veteran recover soon tests her determination and disturbs town memories best left buried. She has no choice but to turn to her patient's seemingly-irresponsible brother, Tyler Sutter. A restless ex-soldier, Tyler can't believe this pretty ladylike nurse can heal his family.

    Always love a Garlock story!

    Would recommend any of Dorothy Garlock's novels to any lover of Americana.
