Jane Wilder left Boston, Massachusetts and moved to Missoula, Montana to be a school teacher, sent away by her Aunt, trying to help her escape the shame of her disgraced parents, and have a chance for a new life. For four years, she has been the schoolteacher, but it has come with trials when the school superintendent finds out about her parentage and past and makes it know to the townspeople. Now, she finds she will be without a job for the next school term. Correspondence with a cousin who lives in Paradise Valley, near Bozeman, informs her of an opening for a teacher, and she will be offered the job, and a chance to be close to one of her few living relatives.
Dusty Lewis was from Georgia, and after the death of his parents sold the farm and moved to Fort Worth, Texas. He got involved with some rowdier crowds before signing on with Thomas to move a large herd of cattle to Montana. He has stayed on with Thomas and his wife, Genevieve, working at their ranch. He wishes he could find a good woman to love and have a future. Thomas allows Dusty to pick a location on the ranch and build himself a home. Read book one, Of Peaks and Prairies (Paradise Valley Book 1)
The plot will have two cousins reuniting, and in the process, Jane will meet Dusty who works for Thomas. There is an instant attraction, and over time a courtship will ensue. For Dusty, the trip from Paradise Valley into Bozeman is half a day's ride each way, but he makes it as often as he can on Saturdays to see Jane. One such trip may actually saves Jane’s life when the school house was on fire, and Dusty helps pull her to safety.
Dusty and Jane have a sweet courtship, but it is not without self-doubt and indecision. Dusty is concerned that a more refined lady from back East would never develop feelings for a ranch hand. Jane is harboring a family secret that has already reeked havoc on her life in Missoula, and fears that if Dusty or the people of Bozeman find out the truth, she will be shunned again. Two people will have to learn to trust their feelings, secrets, and hopes for their future before they can move on. For a marriage to have a strong foundation, there can be no secrets, past, present or future. True love will not hold an innocent child hostage, but instead, will set her free with a future of happiness.
