In this inspirational historical romance, Edith is a nurse and has gone home to assist her cousin who is “with child.” Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high. However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger starts writing to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man's inner soul before making any harsh judgments. Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he's as wonderful in person as he is in his letters.

Who wouldn’t like letters from a mysterious secret admirer? And reading a story about one was almost as good! Loved that storyline and how stories with other couples on various stages of their love story were woven in. Great performance by a pro reader who can even sing when needed!

I dont always get into historical
Fiction but this book grabbed me right away and took me back to s Robin Hood era. My kg regret was that Robin wasnt incognito more often or for longer. Other than that the performance was top notch and the story moved along quickly and excitingly. I couldn't believe the twist at the end!!!! A great audio read

I enjoyed the spunk of the main female character. The western moved along in a typical manner for romances based in that time period. It was a simple read but seemed very true to the time. It kept me well entertained on car rides many times. I'm thankful that this writer keeps churning out tales of duh high variety!
