Review: The Homesteader's Sweetheart

ENJOY THIS REVIEW BY ONE OF OUR MEMBERS, TERRI WELDON:

THE HOMESTEADER’S SWEETHEART

BY LACY WILLIAMS

Reviewed by Terri Weldon

Wealthy Penny Castlerock is desperate to escape the attentions of the loathsome Mr. Abbott. Her father approves of the much older suitor, but Penny is determined she will never marry him. Eager to get away she volunteers to visit her ailing grandfather. Penny and her brother Sam hitch a ride with Jonas White. Jonas White has been enamored of the lovely Miss Castlerock since he worked as a bricklayer’s assistant in Philadelphia where she went to finishing school. He traveled to town in the hopes of securing a loan to pay for medical treatment for his daughter. Initially though attracted to Jonas, Penny can’t imagine life with a poor homesteader with eight children. Jonas knows a woman like Penny would never love him, after all other than his ragtag family no one has ever loved him. However, as the couple spends more time together Penny’s feelings for Jonas continue to grow. She surprises Jonas with her horsemanship abilities and willingness to help out however she can.

Lacy has created a hero every woman will fall in love with! Believe me, by the end of the story you’ll want to move Penny Castlerock over and take her place by Jonas’s side.  Penny is a delightful heroine vividly portrayed by Ms. William’s pen and watching her mature throughout the book is a joy. The author does an excellent job of portraying the historical setting and gives the reader a real feel for life as a homesteader in Wyoming Territory in 1890. 

I highly recommend this book.  Trust me, you’ll love it!

THE HOMESTEADER'S SWEETHEART WILL BE AVAILABLE MAY 1.
