About the Author
Writing first took her to non-fiction human-interest articles for newspapers and eventually a non-fiction book about tuberculosis set in the 1930s and 1940s (Touched By The White Plague). But romance had always been her first love and she turned to writing love stories. She is multi-published in the CBA market.
She lives on a small ranch in Alberta where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man.
She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds, only now she does it on paper-or rather, at the computer.
Linda loves to hear from her readers via her email: firstname.lastname@example.org

This book was okay. The characters and the plot are okay.
Trust and forgiveness is on the line, as Johnny and Willow get to know each other, while searching for her sisters in Montana. I enjoyed Johnny and Willow, and baby Adam, together. The connection they have is instant, at least from Johnny's side. And mostly, at first, with Adam. Those two recognised something in each other immediately, that forced a strong bond between them. Not so fast forming, but as strong as anything, was also the bond between Willow and Johnny. Being the honorable, kind man that he is, Johnny can't turn his back on her, while she obviously needs help. The journey they take together is filled with worry, dangers, and pitfalls. The worry for Willow's sisters, the menace of the men on the road, and so much adversity, while trying to start the new life. Mostly they are tested in their faith in God, and trust, that He is in charge, and sees their future, and the big picture, even while they are not able to. The forgiveness for themselves, for those who have wronged them in the past, and learning to leave it in the past, are all lessons both Johnny and Willow, as well as Willow's sisters, have relearn couple times. This story has a strong and definite message, that is easy to suit to one's own life as well. The tale takes us through in a gentle way, the growth and cultivation of the characters, their maturation in faith to God, and learning to trust again, in themselves, their feelings, and each other, while forming a beautiful family of the heart ~ Four Spoons
4 STARS I really like Johnny. He does what he thinks is right even if it messes up his plans. I love the scenes with him and the baby. Johnny is going to fix up a cabin for him and his friend to start their ranch. When he comes upon a broken wagon with a woman and her sick baby. Johnny is half Indian. He does not trust women. Has a lot of faith in God. Willow Reames is a widow traveling by wagon to a new city with her baby by herself She has sent for her sisters to come live with her at new town. Willow has had to make some tough choices in her past to take care of her sisters and her son. Willow does not trust men. Willow has a gun but finally gives in and asks Johnny for help to take care of her sick baby. She does not want help. She wants to do things by herself. Willow is excited to see her sisters. But they are not on the train as expected. She is going to find them herself. Johnny is going to help her, even if she does not want it. I cared for the characters and wanted them all to be a happy family. Sarah is a doll. She has so much faith. Celia is angry all the time. Adam is a cute baby and knows what he wants. This is a clean read. Does mention God, faith and prayer is a way that is believable for the characters. Not preaching way. I was given this ebook to read for free from NetGalley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Cowboy's Baby Bond.
