England-born Emmaline Bradford pledged her life to Geoffrey Garrett and then bid him farewell when he sailed to America. Although Geoffrey anticipated only a short separation, several years passed before he was able to send for Emmaline. By then the fiery flame of her youthful love had all but died. Shocked by the conditions on Geoffrey's Kansas sheep ranch, Emmaline wishes to return to England immediately. Geoffrey offers a compromise: If Emmaline promises to stay until spring, he'll pay her return fare if she decides to go back to her home country. When spring arrives, will Emmaline return to England, or will she marry Geoffrey and carve out a life with him in Kansas?

I saw this on the library new books display. I knew it had to be a Christian book the moment I saw the cover. There's just something about the art. Anyhow, I love it. I want to find out more about Emmaline, Geoffrey, Tildy, Ronald, Jim and Chris....where the story goes from there. An A+ great book.
