Overview

An exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.

Kansas,1881--On a trip to visit relatives, Emma Switzer's Amish family is robbed of all their possessions, leaving them destitute and stranded on the prairie. Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first.

Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone's prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged--do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other's match?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Heart's Frontier is one of the most compelling western romances I've ever read. The authors wove fun and laughter into the storyline, along with all the ruggedness and dangers of the frontier?specifically, the famous Chisholm Trail. This is Amish-meets-Wild West at its hoof-thundering, heart pounding, Plain old best."
?Delia Latham, author of the Solomon's Gate Series

"I was impressed with how well this book was written and researched. The characters' back stories and personalities were revealed expertly over the length of the story; I felt I was coming to know them all as naturally as if I were another character in the book. I definitely recommend this exciting, yet gentle story of the power of faith, hard work, and family in overcoming prejudice and evil."
?Cayenne DaBell

?Alan Daugherty
