However, I have one thing that really irritated me. It's silly. It's little. It's persnickety. It still bothers me. I'm Catholic. We bow. We genuflect. We kneel. We do NOT curtsy. That bothered me and made me laugh. I suppose one could accidentally genuflect in a Protestant church, but there was a comment that she would have to do the "ritual" in her head from now on. That leads me to believe that the author has no idea WHY we genuflect (not curtsy) and therefore the supposedly Catholic character also has no clue. We genuflect as a sign of reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, reserved in the tabernacle (kneel on both knees if exposed) the Blessed Sacrament isn't present in a Protestant church, so there would be no need to genuflect in a Protestant church. Bowing would make the most sense, as that's what one does in front of the altar, which a Protestant church may have.
Anyway, I know that I just made a mountain from a molehill, but those are the things whilst reading that stick out like a sore thumb. Otherwise, a really great read and I can't wait to read more.
Marshal Adam Wilerson, a friend of Sam Larson, has the daunting task of informing Ms. Donovan that her fiancé has died. The quandary that the marshal finds him in is that he does not know what Ms. Donovan looks like or the exact day of her arrival. He keeps watch and is intrigued by a mysterious young woman with a young child. Suspecting that this woman might be the mail-order bride, the marshal approaches her with the sad news. The marshal is curious about her and assumes that this strange pair is mother and child. His heart goes out to them. The marshal is strangely attracted to this young woman who arouses a strong need in him to protect her. What lays ahead for these two? Will Millie return to Chicago? What has happened to this woman? Why does he feel he needs to protect her? To find out these answers, you must read this book.
I thought this story was well written. Ms. Hubalek developed strong, complicated characters. As she tells this romantic tale, the past lives of the two protagonists are revealed. In her plot line, Ms. Hubalek, generates tension and suspense as she reveals the underlying motivation for Ms. Donovan’s flight to Kansas. Additionally, I appreciated how Ms. Hubalek interjected humor into her plot line, thereby, endearing these two characters to the reader.
