I liked this story. It had a little bit of history, took place "out West" in 1889, had romance, adventure and a good dose of seeing God's plan come together for many different people throughout the book. Julia Cavanaugh left New York riding the orphan train and delivering her girls across the west. At her final stop, Lonesome Prairie, she thought she would then be heading back East, but an unwanted "surprise" awaits her and she finds herself stuck in Lonesome Prairie, Montana. Isaac is the respected circuit preacher in this town who has a heart for the ministry and seeing lives changed. Even though his two sisters keep trying to find him a wife, Isaac has no plans to marry. Now you know where this is going to go, but to get to the ending that you are expecting there is alot that takes place. This isn't just a story of Julia and Isaac, but of several other characters in the book also. It was well written and gave a good idea of what it must have been like to live in Lonesome Prairie in 1889. A delightful adventure that is well worth the time it takes you to read it.
