I loved the Ol’ West setting.
Interesting story that can also stand alone without the first book if you choose to read them out of order. I loved the conversations of spiritual matter, Anna’s journey, and the sweet friendship-based and Christian romance. It was also very neat how the song the book is named after worked into the story. I did think that the story ended on an abrupt note, but it seems like it overlaps somewhat with the next book so I’m sure everything gets resolved.
I enjoyed Anna. She was both realistic and interesting, and her eventual servant’s heart was inspiring. I loved how complicated and nice both Caleb and Miles were. Other favorite characters included James, John, and Wilma (everyone should have a friend like her!).
Parents may want to have caution in considering this book for younger readers because of some mild romance and adult themes. It is mentioned in passing that an outlaw character in the previous book “violated a young woman” and murdered people but nothing in much detail. Also, a father in the story very much hates his children and is a drunkard. My biggest concern, however, was the jealous women of the town are falsely accusing the main character of committing adultery (possibly even with the person she is engaged to), and they go into detail about what they think she did.
Altogether, I enjoyed this book for its sweet and hilarious moments where Anna is mothering the boys and for its godly romance!
And it has a great cover!
It was a pleasant and relaxing read, and Anna’s romance with Pastor Jenkins was engaging, unique, and, I felt, realistic (what I really liked was how they didn’t fall madly in love but were able to evaluate their courtship without their emotions overwhelming them). At times I felt the characters didn’t act completely in character and sometimes their reactions didn’t make sense one hundred percent. But I enjoyed all the characters, especially Anna and Caleb and their sweet relationship with the two Jenkins boys. I would also have liked more description of the setting. But as it was the characters shone through and grabbed all the attention! All in all an uplifting read that I would recommend.
I did feel that there wasn't enough detail about the main characters' romance, almost like it rushed them from friends to having feelings without developing those feelings or revealing them to the reader.
I'm glad there are more books in the series but it looks like they are the same story from another character's viewpoint, so I'm not sure I will read them.
The ending was unexpectedly sudden. I immediately planned on buying the next book in the series, but when I read the sample chapter, I was disappointed that it went back further than the ending of the first book. It's understandable that the main character switches from one sibling to the other, but we want to know, "What happened next?" Do we need to read very much of the ensuing book to have our questions answered? Now I'm not sure about buying it.
I would recommend that anyone seeking a book filled with imperfect characters who still strive for good, choose this one.
