Overview

When Sarah Channing's fiancé hardens his heart toward a needy child named Mairi, the New York Socialite puts her wedding on hold to locate the child's only relatives, hidden deep in the Appalachians.

Arriving at Sawback Mountain, Sarah meets Wyn, Mairi's handsome older cousin, and finds herself wishing for something she doesn't have: a glimmer of beauty.

Wyn had his fill of beautiful city-bred women during his time in Washington, DC, as a senator's aide. Yet he's impressed by Sarah, working hard to gain the love and respect of the mountain folks.

But Sarah is making mistake after mistake as she tries to use her money and influence to improve the lives of the children.

Perhaps the proud mountain folk are right: a cultured socialite, even one without beauty, has no place on their mountain or in the heart of a mountain man who's vowed to never again leave the life he loves.

    Loved it

    Loved it! Decently long at 600+ pages. Loved the story, loved the setting, loved the characters! Set in Tennessee mountain settlement in the 1820s I believe. Centered around a plain woman from the city and a mountain man born and bred. Toss in a snake, a cat, and a schoolhouse full of children and you have the makings of a story. Add to that some money, moonshine, stubborness, and intrigue and you have a really good story.

This story is based on Sarah who is from the city, circumstances take her to the mountains; a little girl and a kitty! What is she leaving behind? A fiancé, a mansion, and a socialite life! Why what draws Sarah to Sawback Mountain? A little girl, children that needs a teacher, a mountain family that includes her into family; oh, there is also a mountain man that has a smile and beautiful eyes! When the mountain calls out to Sarah find out where her heart and head leads her! Can this city go to the mountains and take the city with her?

    Good

    The story was great, I really enjoyed the story line. I did find the numerous errors in grammar very annoying. The number of errors seemed to increase the further along you got in the book. This is the first time I considered not finishing a book due errors. The author did a very good job with the story, and if you can overlook the errors, you may enjoy. On the story line alone, I would have rated this much higher. As good as this author is, she needs an editor that can do her work proud.

    Very nice

    This was a great read. It had elements that reminded me of the classic Christy. The book is a decent length and is a complete story, not like some of the others that are meant to lure you into buying more books just to find out what happens. This one was also edited quite well. There were only a handful of mistakes in the entire 600+ pages. The story flowed well and all of the characters were written in a way that brought them to life for the reader. The author includes an excerpt from her next novel, which looks to be very entertaining- I would definately be interested in reading it!

    Engaging characters and interesting plot

    Sarah is a woman who finds her own strength by leaving the belittling society of New York and traveling to the Smoky Mountains to return an orphaned child to the only family left to her. The story was engaging , but there were grammatical errors (who's instead of whose) and typos (missing words, extra words, misused words) throughout - not enough to make me stop reading, but enough to be distracting. Editing does matter!

    Editing lacking

    The story itself was good but there were so many errors in the book it took away from my enjoyment a little. Misspellings that could have been caught by a 10 year old and just poor wording in some context. I have found though that more and more books lately seem to be the same way and it is starting to turn me off from reading.

    Cute story

    Very sweet story! It read quickly. A little graphic at times but not vulgar. Quite a few typos, however.
