When Sarah Channing's fiancÈ hardens his heart toward a needy child named Mairi, the New York Socialite puts her wedding on hold to locate the child's only relatives, hidden deep in the Appalachians.
Arriving at Sawback Mountain, Sarah meets Wyn, Mairi's handsome older cousin, and finds herself wishing for something she doesn't have: a glimmer of beauty.
Wyn had his fill of beautiful city-bred women during his time in Washington, DC, as a senator's aide. Yet he's impressed by Sarah, working hard to gain the love and respect of the mountain folks.
But Sarah is making mistake after mistake as she tries to use her money and influence to improve the lives of the children.
Perhaps the proud mountain folk are right: a cultured socialite, even one without beauty, has no place on their mountain or in the heart of a mountain man who's vowed to never again leave the life he loves.
"The mountain community... comes alive under Trana Mae Simmons' artful pen. Her romance charms." ~Gerry Benninger, Romantic Times
"...a refreshing, fun-to-read American historical romance. This reviewer will gladly waltz to more tales by Ms. Simmons." ~Harriet Klausner
THE HOMESPUN HEARTS SERIES, in order
A real page turner very well researched and written with subtle teachings inserted. Would recommend to all.
Wonderful book. Very enjoyable. Recommend highly.
I thought the characters were wonderfully done, and quite realistic. I especially like the twins, as I have twin nephews about that age. Their personalities were charming. At first I was afraid Sarah was going to be overly feminist but the balance was just right, and she made you feel rather proud of her. Dan reminds me of my dad who is in a wheelchair and can't walk, but doesn't stop trying. My favorite place in the world is a mountain. The descriptions brought back the feel and scent of the air up there. I'm missing it desperately now!
