A Christy Award winner and RITA finalist, bestselling author Deeanne Gist crafts inspirational fiction of the highest order.

It’s a battle of wills—and love is on the line. Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is as tough as nails and proud of her independence in a man’s world, which makes it twice as vexing when the telephone company sends a man to look over her shoulder. Georgie is anything but pleased.

What Georgie doesn’t know is that dashing Luke Palmer is more than he appears. He’s a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate a notorious gang of train robbers. Repairing telephones and tangling with this tempestuous woman is the last thing he wants to do. But when his stakeout puts Georgie in peril and the gang is headed her way, Luke realizes that more than his job is on the line.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William J. Meyer | 2/19/2014

    " Love the structure of this book, the meta-narrative technique as though this is a translation of an old work. I also really like the extended flashbacks to delve into the back-stories of the various characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni Snyder | 2/18/2014

    " A rare case where the movie is better than the book, but the book's not all bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 2/8/2014

    " It's rare to find in equal parts a book and movie that are as good separately as The Princess Bride. I saw the movie first many, many years ago. It has been my absolute favorite of all times and I can honestly say that this book equally matches the greatness that I found in watching the film. The book is well done and so funny. I've never read a book that has me guffawing out loud so much that it had the people in my household look and wonder if my sanity was still in tact. This book is nostalgia. It is the quote always stuck on the tip of my tongue whenever I think how inconceivable it would be to never have read The Princess Bride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish Evans | 2/8/2014

    " Great family read aloud. A must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daryl | 1/30/2014

    " This sat on my bookshelf for years but I just could never bring myself to read it. It couldn't possibly be as good as the movie could it (certainly an odd thing to say about a book, I know)? I was wrong. The only issue I had was trying to divorce my view of Prince Humperdink from the movie as he's quite different in the book :). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharla | 1/11/2014

    " This is one of my favorite books of all time. I have loved the movie since I was a kid and the book itself is so playful and funny. If you love the movie, even if you don't, I would highly recommend the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 1/8/2014

    " Favorite movie ever...great book too! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rozemarijn | 11/8/2013

    " Did not think it was great. Did like the idea of abridging Morgenstern, but the actual fairytale was not great. I especially hated the torture scene. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Odhran | 10/11/2013

    " Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beats of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles. "

    " Sadly not as good as the movie, blasphemy I know "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim N - Lost-In-A-Book | 8/26/2013

    " I really enjoyed this. I've been a fan of the movie for years (thanks to my husband for introducing it to me), but I loved the backstories of Inigo and Fezzik in this book that you don't get to see in the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma Chase | 3/23/2013

    " Would have been 4 stars if I didn't see the movie first. The film is absolutley one of my favorites - could watch it over and over! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill-mel Reynolds | 3/12/2013

    " One of my favorite books of all time!! "

    " I don't think I've ever said this about any other book before, but the movie was SO much better. The story itself was good, but I found the author's added comments to be a bit tedious and annoying. "
