Agnes starts over in the Dakota Territories, taking a teaching position, away from the Boston society that she grew up in. She blossoms away from the bright lights of the city, but when a face from the past resurfaces, Agnes finds herself at a crossroads. Will the past taint the life she’s made for herself, or be the key to the happiness that’s always been out of reach?
Agnes has learned a lot since leaving her life of privilege behind, making many new friends who come to love and respect her. I loved her empathy, and passion for the children. She grows and is stretched by the new experiences that she faces in Dakota, I loved how she comes into her own, taking pride in the person that she has become.
I admired Sam’s honesty, and how he is willing to lend a hand when needed. James is a skilled doctor, and I loved seeing him find his calling and see the difference that he made in the community. Hannah is a wonderful friend, welcoming Agnes from the very beginning.
An engaging prairie romance of second chances, with compelling characters, and a well-developed small town community. I loved the friendships, relationship dynamics, and character interactions. Heartwarming, with a convincing plotline, I loved how all the pieces came together and how Agnes fell in love with her new home in the Dakotas. This author just keeps getting better and better, this one is my favorite so far, full of heart, great characters, and second chances. Highly recommend!
