Rebecca Young and her late husband have 8 children, 7 sons and a daughter, Joy. Now that her husband is dead, she must make ends meet, and turning her farm into a Pony Express station might just be the answer.
The Pony Express sends Seth Armstrong to help set up the operation, he is responsible and a good leader, teaching Rebecca's sons what they will need to know to become riders, and he also spends time with Benjamin, even though he is too young to be a rider.
I liked Rebecca, for both her strengths and her vulnerabilities. She is determined to turn her far into a Pony Express station, and follow through with what her husband wanted, helping to provide a way for their sons to make their way in the world. But she worries about them as they grow up and if they are ready to start leaving home. I liked her for her kind spirit and hospitality.
I loved the relationship that Rebecca has with her sons, they all respect her and look up to her, and will do anything to protect her.
I liked how Seth started having a Bible study with the boys and his devotion to keeping his word.
Overall, a terrific read with great interaction between the characters, and great dialog that kept a smile on my face. I liked how this book was engaging from the first, with great characters and a great plot. Fantastic read fro beginning to end.
