Overview

Forgiving by LaVyrle Spencer

When Sarah Merritt arrives in Dakota Territory in 1876, she steps off the dusty Cheyenne stagecoach determined to start this ramshackle gold-rush town’s first newspaper. In Deadwood, her runaway younger sister, Addie, is living and working as domestic help at Mrs. Hossiter’s boardinghouse, according to her letters. Five years after Addie’s flight from home, Sarah is carrying the sad news that their one remaining parent, newspaper publisher Isaac Merritt, has died.
 
But when Sarah—tall, prim, and nearly a spinster at twenty-five—sets up her father’s printing press in the middle of Main Street, she finds herself at loggerheads with Sheriff Noah Campbell. Headstrong and opinionated, with an auburn mustache and grinning gray eyes, he arrests her on the spot. And so begins an enmity between two willful individuals that can change only when they find themselves united in a common goal: to reclaim the Addie that Sarah once knew.
 
But life is never simple. Mrs. Hossiter is more commonly known as Rosie in this bawdy frontier town, and Addie’s work is as an “upstairs girl,” not an upstairs maid. Addie is furious when Sarah turns up at the bordello—and she tells her proper sister to get out. What could have happened to change Addie so—and what can Sarah do to regain the sweet sister of her youth and bring her home again?

About the Author

LaVyrle Spencer is a contemporary and historical romance novelist who has written twelve New York Times bestsellers. Whether set in the Old West or in present day suburban Minnesota, a Spencer novel means seeing love in a new light and meeting characters so real it's all you can do not to climb into the pages yourself. Several of Spencer's books have been made into movies (Publishers Weekly called one of her television deals "precedent-setting") and in 1988 she was inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She lives with her husband, Dan, in North Oaks, Minnesota.

A romance novel. It not only is about love blossoming between a new couple but it about sisters dealing and mending their past (which they lived and experienced together, yet have very different opinions and knowledge about it) and it is about a couple reunited and I just think it's a very enjoyable book.
