Her husband’s suicide left Nora MacKenzie alone, and his shady Wall Street dealings left the Manhattan socialite penniless. By a miracle, she’s held on to their mountainside farm - and she’ll keep holding on, no matter what. The property is Nora’s one chance to wring some dignity out of the sham she’s been living.
The Vermont locals think she’s a city girl on a nature kick, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. Nora’s serious about learning the farming business…if she can figure out where to begin. Against the locals’ skepticism, she has only one ally: Charles “C.W.” Walker.
C.W. is hardworking, gentle with the animals and a patient teacher of the hundreds of chores Nora needs to learn. Slowly she starts to believe she’ll survive in her new life, even flourish. She might even be willing to open her heart again. But she won’t return to a life of lies…and the truth about C.W. may be more than Nora’s fragile heart can bear.

I have read a few of this authors books so when I was looking for another book I was happy to purchase this one. I was finding it a bit difficult to get into it but as I enjoyed the others I stuck with it and dud enjoy the story
This was my first Mary Alice Monroe book and i absolutely loved it - will definitely buy more of her books. The narrator was really good and the story was captivating. I would recommend it.
"Well worth the listen"
I really enjoyed this book, and will certainly ready more by Mary Alice Monroe. Greed and power versus faith, love and trust. Sandra Burr as usual does an excellent narration.
"the long road home"
typical 1st book-very predictable, pass over this one and go for one of her later books which are excellent
"Forced myself to the predictable ending..."
What a yawner. Maybe I am getting too old for these trite stories. The only characters worth note were the grounds keeper and his family. Use your credit for a more worthy book.
This is an entertaining romance. Not as good as her later books, but a fun listen.
