Mistaken identity leads to romance, laughter, and second chances in this inspirational historical romance. The Kansas community of Fairland anticipates the arrival of their new minister. Over the past several months, late in 1882, postmistress Grace Cristler has communicated with Reverend Dille via letters, answering his questions about the little town and its members, and developing an affection for the man who pens thoughtful missives.

the deceitfulness went on for too long so the story became unreal and boring
I can't believe an intelligent well read woman like Grace or aunt Bess can be so simply
Theo acts like a silly unsure teenage boy I really struggle to finish this book I am going to stop reading 5 stars reviews 2,3,or even 1 star give a more accurate reviews
