It was great to be back in Oak Grove! I love the people there! Well, most of them, anyway. ;) I loved Sylvia and Nelson’s story! They had quite the journey!! Sylvia is strong, independent and stubborn. She has put up walls for many years. She is also kind, giving and genuine. Her fierce love for her son touched my heart. She faced difficult circumstances in her life and had to make difficult decisions. It was interesting to see the difference between her choices and Mrs. Graham’s choices and how their lives were affected because of them. Nelson is a good man! He truly cares about others and wants to help them. I loved watching him realize that Sylvia was the woman he wanted for his bride. They come from such different worlds, but are so perfect for each other. And he was so sweet with Tommy! I loved their interactions! Nelson had his work cut out for him trying to get past Sylvia’s walls. She was so afraid of being in town, and I loved witnessing the acceptance and friendship she found there from so many. Her stubbornness and fear still got in the way, but it made for a great ending! *sigh* I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

I enjoyed reading this awesome story set in the frontier town of Oak Grove. Doc Nelson is looking for a bride or nurse to help him. Sylvia Marks is trying to raise her son, Tommy; by herself in the wilderness & doing the best job she can. Until, Tommy is seriously injured. She kidnaps the Doc to fix him up. During this time they get to know each other & he finds that she has a lot of skills & a caring heart, however; the people of Oak Grove have a different opinion of her. As the book progress Doc finds that the train brides are lacking in many ways & Sylvia & her son are calling his heart. After Sylvia & her son are almost swept away by the river & recover in town, they find that as they help some of the people & being around them, that they are no longer shunned. You will have to see if Doc can convince the stubborn Sylvia to be his wife. Sometimes the thing you are searching for is right beneath your nose.

What a delightful read to start off the new year. Ms. Albright always has a way of crafting unique characters. I loved Sylvia and Nelson. I could feel their frustration to their circumstances. Sylvia, a single mom and Nelson having a bad first experience with mail order brides. I loved following the story along the journey. I received a copy of this story from the author, all opinions are my own.

Oh what a delicious small town romance filled with antics, danger and such heart warming love! Nelson and Sylvia were so much fun to read about as they clashed and clicked while discovering their paths in life. Nelson is the swoon worthy town doctor who is all too logical for his own good. Sylvia’s past makes her leery of everyone and it just makes the sparks fly off the page between these two! I understand a mom doing anything for her child – so kidnapping the doctor is fine, right?! So many well written characters that make up the lovable small town ambiance. This author knows how to write page turning stories with the creeps that bring about the danger, which seems to follow Sylvia everywhere, to the sweet and honest ones that you wish you could be friends with in real life. I love getting lost in a story and the people of Oak Grove make that happen! With the author’s help of course. I have never been disappointed in a Kathryn Albright book and she makes the happy ever after so good.
