The Bride's Choice by Ruth Ann Nordin:

"Stop stuttering, Jack. Don't be so clumsy. What's wrong with you?" Over and over, Jack Warren heard such words his entire life from his father and others. When his brother comes across an ad looking for hired hands in Lincoln, Nebraska, Jack jumps at the chance to go. Finally, he'll get to live his life in peace since he'll be far removed from others. What he doesn't count on is the owner's attractive daughter who happens to be available.

When the new hired hands arrive at her pa's farm, Maybell is immediately drawn to Jack. Though he wasn't the most graceful of all men to work for her pa, there's a certain charm and sweetness about him that appeals to her. Her pa, however, has other ideas. Certain someone as timid as Jack wouldn't make a good husband, he rejects Jack's suit. Instead, he plans for her to marry his brother, and he'll do everything he can to make that happen.

When the Whistle Blows by Janet Syas Nitsick:

When the Whistle Blows, Hugh Warren paces outside the depot, waiting to see if his love, Winifred Preston, will step off the train to meet him. He only had himself to blame for his predicament. Could she give him another chance? He did not know. Heart in his throat, he looks this way and that hoping against hope she did not already marry the beau back in Virginia.

When the Whistle Blows takes readers to the Midwest of 1877, where two unlikely individuals collide with each other physically and emotionally. However, only Winifred can determine whether duty and Hugh's betrayal will keep her in Virginia or allow her to return to the man who still haunts her heart.

I enjoyed the first story but not the second one. The second story was just a reiteration of the first and very boring. I skipped over most of it. The second story should have started out with the ending of the first with Winifred leaving. Oh well. I still enjoy Ruth Ann stories.

I very much liked this story of Jack and his Maybell. Jack is so sweet and wants desperately to be loved. Maybell impressed me when she sees Jack for who he is; not his stutter, not his clumsiness, she just sees Jack. A man she very much likes and would like to know a lot better. She didn’t let her father’s attitude or anyone else’s dissuade her. I didn’t care for Hugh’s willingness to go along with the plans of Maybell’s father. I think he’ll redeem himself once we have his book, which I’m looking forward to reading Adult read
