Book Review ~ Whispers on the Prairie by Vickie McDonough

  A City Girl Far from Home...

Sarah Marshall just wants to go home. It wasn't her idea to leave Chicago and head west in search of gold, but her uncle's ambition left her no choice. Neither was her intention to settle in Kansas City with her ailing aunt, but being penniless and without possessions brings little bargaining power. Pretty soon, she resigns herself to her fate, however unfortunate. It isn't as if she has a home to go back to.

A Country Boy Seeking to Right a Wrong...

Ethan Harper, the youngest of three brothers, enjoys a peaceful existence helping run his family's stage shop along the Santa Fe Trail. Only one cloud continues to darken his horizon—guilt over the tragic death of his oldest brother's wife. The only acceptable penance Ethan can think of is finding another woman to marry his brother and help raise his motherless children.

A Match so Incompatible, It Just Might Work...

When a series of misfortunes strands Sarah Marshall and her aunt at the Harpers' Stage Stop, the status quo is overthrown as the presence of an attractive young woman, however unversed in the ways of prairie living, wreaks havoc on the lives of the Harper brothers, all three of them vying for her attention. But will any of them prove himself worth giving up the life Sarah always dreamed of?

My Thoughts:
With as busy as Summer has been lately, I've gotten a bit behind on my reading.  So, I picked a book off my shelf that looked like it would be a quick read.  It was quick but it packed a punch!
It seemed like calamity followed Sarah everywhere she went.  And Ethan was always there to see her blunders!
I loved how the author took seemingly insurmountable obstacles and used them to teach about God's provision.  That God is working even when we can't see the "how" or the "when" or the "where".
All three Harper brothers were swoon-worthy in their own right.  I love how the author picked the youngest to be featured in the first book of the "Pioneer Promises" series.
Unfortunately, I don't have the next 2 books on my shelf at this point, but hopefully soon!
