Grace Mallory is the telegraph operator in Harper's Station, a women's colony founded by Emma Chandler. After hours telegraph operators can talk to each other, which is how Grave meets Mr. A from Denison. While talking to Mr. A she receives an urgent warning, related to her past.
While they are talking Amos Bledsoe overhears an urgent warning while talking to Grace, he decides to take action and come to help. Amos prefers his bicycle to riding horse, and he isn't the typical broad shouldered hero, but he boards a train and rents an uncooperative mule in order to get to Harper's Station as soon as possible.
Upon arrival Amos is greeted by a woman with a gun and a woman with a plate of cookies and then promptly thrown in jail. Will he be able to prove who he is, and help Grace with the danger that she faces?
Grace is clever and quick thinking, she has the support and friendship of all the women in Harper's Station. She's courageous and doesn't take the easy way out, and leans on her faith to see her through.
Amos fits right into Harper's Station, and it doesn't take him long to realize that he wants to pursue a relationship with Grace. He is intelligent, considerate, and has a quirky sense of humor that Grace appreciates. They have a great connection, and conversation between then is natural, and full of spark.
I love how Grace helps Amos prove his identity, and how they work together to discover the secret that her father found before he died. This is a great read from beginning to end, which great chemistry between Amos and Grace. I loved seeing some of my favorite townspeople again, and Emma Potter's story as well. I loved the great sense of community in Harper's Station, humor, and dialog. Fast-paced read that put a smile on my face, I enjoyed every bit of this wonderful read!
