    Words

    I am truly enjoying this story but really, really wish the author had an editor. I have found only a few typos so far, ad instead of add, and where instead of what or were, but spell check will never tell you when a correctly spelled word is the wrong word. For example you use reins on a horse, not reigns which is for royalty while they rule and several others such as new instead of knew. Again, I am enjoying the story but using the wrong words is distracting.

    Kelli works in the orphanage that she was raised in, taking care

    Kelli works in the orphanage that she was raised in, taking care of the children, especially her favorite one, Charlie. She'd been taking care oof him him since he was only a few weeks old. He has a bad leg, so he spends most of his time helping Kelli with the babies and in the kitchen. So when she was asked to assist with the children on the Orphan Train, she begs for Charlie to come with her. Not only because she'd miss him terribly but she also wants to give him a chance of a better life. She also wonders if this is all her life will entail, she prays for love and a family of her own. Will God answer her prayers?

    Carter Hardy is a wealthy rancher. His wife Abby passed away shortly after his daughter was born. Will he ever be open to falling in love again?

    This was an endearing story of trusting in God. I was immediately drawn into Kelli's desires and praying to God for guidance and patience. Throughout the novel, in every trial, she was quietly praying, she never got angry at God, only at herself. I was in awe when she and Charlie began their new life. Just going boldly in faith, if only we all could have that kind of courage and faith that He's completely in control of the situation. This was a powerful and moving story! Teresa Lilly reminds us that we are never alone and our faith can be unshakeable!

    An interesting storyline illustrating how lives become intertwined and blessed. Kelli Martin needs a husband. Charlie, an orphan, needs a
    family. Carter Hardy needs a mother for his baby.  With blushing boldness, Kelli asks Carter to marry her. Charles now has a family. The
    baby has a mother--and a big brother. Carter has someone to keep house and care for his child. But does he have a wife that can be his  
    helpmate? Teresa Lilly does a great job of weaving a believable story of need and love.

    I found this story charming. It has actual historical facts and gave nice description of the area and a sweet romantic twist.
    I did not notice errors as some others have stated, perhaps they were already fixed. I recommend this book and look forward to reading other items by this author.

    So-so :(

    The story line seemed good, the plot was decent but somewhere along the way it just fizzled out. The climax seemed to occur at the end of the story and just flopped. The author flipped-flopped in using/not using contractions throughout the story which frustrated me (please note, I am an avid reader...NOT an editor).
    I would be willing to read this again as a second or third draft.

    I am a fan of mail order bride stories, as well as historical Christian fiction, so the book naturally appealed to me. I have read some of Teresa Lilly's previous books and I think this is her best. It was an enjoyable book to read and had a good amount of conflict/tension to propel me through the story. I particularly enjoyed the scene towards the end with the locusts. The descriptions were written as if the author had been through this experience herself. A good rainy day read.

    Love this story, the mixed theme of orphan train and mail orde

    Love this story, the mixed theme of orphan train and mail order bride was unique and then to throw in
    a Kansas natural disaster was clever. The romance is light and realistic. A great story.
