Publisher's Summary

Tessa Taylor arrives in 1870s Upper Peninsula, Michigan, planning to serve as a new teacher to the town. Much to her dismay, however, she immediately learns that there was a mistake, that the town had requested a male teacher. Percival Updegraff, superintendent and chief mine clerk, says she can stay through winter since they won't be able to locate a new teacher before then, and Tessa can't help but say she is in his debt. Little does she know that Percival will indeed keep track of all that she owes him.

Determined to become indispensable, Tessa throws herself into teaching, and soon the children of the widowed lighthouse keeper have decided she's the right match for their grieving father. Their uncle and assistant light keeper, Alex Bjorklund, has his own feelings for Tessa. As the two brothers begin competing for her hand, Tessa increasingly feels that someone is tracking her every move, and she may not be able to escape the trap that has been laid for her.

    Story
    "Great story line."

    Enjoyed the last book in this series. Storyline was interesting. Narration was a distraction with exaggerated pronunciation of final syllables in words.

    Story
    "The narrator destroyed this story!"
    What was most disappointing about Jody Hedlund’s story?

    Jody Hedlund writes clean and interesting stories, although a bit simple. But the narrator makes the story so boring, I just can not listen to it.<br/>


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Becky Doughty is one of the worst narrators I have heard. She drags out the last syllable of every sentence. She can not change her voice to make the characters interesting or distinguishable. And her male voices are terrible!


    Any additional comments?

    As much as I would like to hear more of Jody Hedlund's books, I will have to pass on the ones read by Becky Doughty.

    "Loved it"

    Hated the "self ordained" king.This gave me the motivation to keep reading the book. I just knew that he would get his come-uppance eventually.
