Lucy Richards leaves her hometown for the wild praries of Texas,to be a schoolmarm. When she gets there she finds the man of her dreams! She also discovers all of the different personalities of her students! As the story continues, Lucy realizes that everything isn't as it seems. The people around her have different expectations, and her demanding and beautiful sister takes something Lucy thought she loved. I know this is probably a book for an adult to review, but everytime I looked at it the page just need my review! I really loved this book becuase it was written as letters from Lucy to her friends and family! I also really enjoyed it becuase Lucy, like me, is really fiesty!If you are a person who gets really depressed when a happy ending doesn't come...read the sequel...DANCE A LITTLE LONGER!!! I hope you get a chance to read this book!
