Publisher's Summary

In 1933 Louisville, Kentucky, even the ongoing economic depression cannot keep Piper Danson's parents from insisting on a debut party. After all, their fortune came through the market crash intact, and they've picked out the perfect suitor for their daughter. Braxton Crandall can give her the kind of life to which she's accustomed. The only problem? This is not the man - or the life - she really wants.  

When Piper gets the opportunity to volunteer as a horseback Frontier Nursing courier in the Appalachian Mountains for the summer, she jumps at the chance to be something other than a dutiful daughter or a kept wife in a loveless marriage. The work is taxing, the scenery jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and the people she meets along the way open up a whole new world to her. The longer she stays, the more an advantageous marriage slips from her grasp. But something much more precious - true love - is drawing ever closer.  

Best-selling author Ann H. Gabhart invites you into the storied hills of Eastern Kentucky to discover what happens when one intrepid young woman steps away from the restrictive past into a beautiful, wide-open future.

Nice

Great story. Well written. Moves along with no fillers. Great characters and storyline.

Narrator does a nice job. Her voice is pleasing to listen to and she does a great job with different characters' voices and acting.

Great Summer Listen!

I loved listening to this book! I was drawn into this hope-filled story from the beginning.
I felt Piper's struggle to find what she wanted not simply comply with her father's wishes.
Aunt Truda was a delight! No spoilers but her story alone is worth the read.
Oh, and Jaime...❤ After losing everything in the crash, he only has his heart to offer.
Read/Listen to this wonderful Depression-era dramatic story.
