England-born Emmaline Bradford pledged her life to Geoffrey Garrett and then bid him farewell when he sailed to America. Although Geoffrey anticipated only a short separation, several years passed before he was able to send for Emmaline. By then the fiery flame of her youthful love had all but died. Shocked by the conditions on Geoffrey's Kansas sheep ranch, Emmaline wishes to return to England immediately.

Geoffrey offers a compromise: If Emmaline promises to stay until spring, he'll pay her return fare if she decides to go back to her home country. When spring arrives, will Emmaline return to England, or will she marry Geoffrey and carve out a life with him in Kansas? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The whole story moved way too slow and the bantering between the characters was predictable and a little boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Fluegge | 1/14/2014

    " I found this book to be a very good read! I loved the author's style of writing as well as the storyline/plot. It is an intriguing story of a couple who fell in love when young teenagers but then are separated for five years while he is building a life for them in America. The characters are real - and experience real emotions. It was very good portrayal of the truth that we will experience good things and bad things in our lives, but through them all a faith and trust in God will sustain us - as He (God) will take care of us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 8/28/2013

    " I thought it was okay. I didn't necessarily like the initial plot of the book, but the secondary characters sort of grew on me. I loved the support of good friends that the heroine had; she needed them. I always like to read stories where a person's faith is rekindled. All in all, it was okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 7/29/2013

    " Finished by listening to audio. Don't think I would have gotten through it otherwise. Tells a good story and tries to throw in hardships and trials to offset the ridiculous good fortune that is seen by the end, but still very unrealistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 7/10/2013

    " I loved Tildy's character. Throughout the entire book I kept liking each of the characters more at different parts of the story. I thought the ending could be better but really enjoyed the rest of the book. "

    " I read this book in one day while traveling from TN to NJ by car. Once I started, it was hard to put down. I enjoy good Christian fiction and though I have only read one other book by this author, just before I read this one, I will definitely read more of Kim Vogel Sawyer's books. "

    " The story was okay but predictable and a little bit preachy at the end. Typical formula Christian novel. The accents on the CD drove me nuts...didn't sound at all English. "
