And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
~ Romans 8:28
June 1897 — New Prospects, Montana, is nothing like England. Noblewoman Beth Wellington, fleeing from the fiancé her father had chosen for her, finds America terrifying and beautiful at the same time. But she has the good fortune of becoming the town’s schoolmistress, and her young pen pal, Janie Steele, is as precious as she’d imagined she would be. Janie’s father, Garret, is another matter entirely.
In this rewrite of a previously released 1997 secular romance of the same name, Hatcher reaffirms her calling to the Christian market. In 1897, Lady Elizabeth “Beth” Wellington flees an arranged marriage in England to become a school teacher in New Prospects, Montana, the home of her young pen pal Janie Steele. Janie’s father, Garrett, expects that Lady Beth will want to be waited on hand and foot, but Beth surprises him by moving into a tumbledown cabin. As Beth settles into her new life, her feelings for Garrett grow while she fends off the mayor’s hot pursuit. With more emphasis on the role of the church in the developing West and deeper religious introspection for the main characters, Hatcher easily shifts to a new market with a title that will appeal to Tracie Peterson’s fans. For all collections. — Library Journal
