Publisher's Summary

When Emily Rose Howard took in four goats, she didn’t know she was getting more than she bargained for. However, life gets even more complicated when her neighbor’s son brings his army friend home for a visit after the Civil War ends, and her former art professor shows up too. But life in the Appalachian Mountains has never been easy, and Emily Rose is determined to face her problems with faith and determination the way she always has.

It’s a long trip from Georgia to Kansas, and Robert Johnson agrees to go home with Lomax Greer and rest up before he goes on to see his sister and her family. The mountains of North Carolina are closer, and Robert is exhausted from the long years of fighting for the Union. However, he hadn’t expected the Appalachians or Lomax’s neighbor to be so lovely. He likes the small, mountain farm, even with all its complications, but he knows there’ll come a time when he must return to Kansas. What will happen then, if part of his heart will always remain in these mountains?

Entertaining and Romantic

I really liked this book! There was some goat humor, adventure, romance and wonderful characters. It was also inspirational as the relationship of Emily Rose and Robert progressed, each putting the other before their own desires, and turning to God for leading. Very encouraging to see that God can take Robert's life that seemed like a hopeless mess and turn it around. It was a sad day when Robert left to return to Kansas and his family, but Emily Rose turned to God and was ready to move on. She knew in the end she needed to trust God and His plan for her life. This series has been made up of different types of stories and characters and each one has been delightful. I'm looking forward to more!

The narration was well done and I enjoyed that they used a man for the men and a woman for the women. It made listening interesting.

I requested this audio book from the author and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

A Sweet and Gentle Romance

A sweet romance develops when two strangers meet. Robert stops at his friends house on his way home from the war and meets Emily Rose. The story moves along in a gentle manor and you meet some well-developed side characters too, one of which is an feisty goat. The story concludes with a very satisfying ending.

Christian Historical Romance

This book ended way too soon!
I loved the slow building relationships between this couple! Too often books rush the romance and don't give feelings a chance to grow!
Seems like everyone is in line to marry this educated, creative, beautiful, capable mountain woman, but her heart doesn't beat for any of them, and none appreciated all that she is, until Robert comes to the mountains! Very well written! I just wish someone came to faith or deepened his or her walk with the Lord!
I'm getting used to this narrator, but there's still room to improve!
