    First and last Mary Connealy book!

    There are some laughs and lovable characters. However there was a major flaw to me. Grace's abusive stepfather has followed her into a small town so he can hurt or kill her. He is not able to get to her because she is snowed in with her husband and his children. So he decides to wait it out until spring and gets a job as the local school teacher. There he starts abusing the local children under the guise of discipline. This is where the book jumped track. The little girls he abuses the most has sisters in the class. Yet they never tell their parents. These are children with a strong mother and a doting father. THEY WOULD HAVE TOLD THEIR PARENTS. Instead they plan a booby trap for the teacher. THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN TO AFRAID. The other children this man has abused were orphans. Makes sense. They had no one to turn to. This was such a major part of the book I found myself skimming whole chapters that dealt when the teacher /abused student relationship. Also it would have been nice if Daniel a good Christian could have shown one moment of remorse for getting Grace fired from her teaching job when he realized she was thin and half starved as well as shabby. It would have also been nice if her stepchildren had received one word of reprimand for putting a snake in her desk and a tack on her chair.
