Publisher's Summary

Glory’s life is being turned upside down. Her comfortable daily life as a teacher at The Wigg School and Foundling Home has ended. She'd lived there all her life. How will she survive without her friends? Her future now is to travel to Texas as a Mail Order Bride and be a teacher.

Glory wonders if she is good enough for Kent Sandler. Glory has never spent time with a man before and as soon as she says “I do”, Kent’s mother-in-law shows up and hands him a two-year-old boy he had no knowledge of and rides off.

Kent never wanted to get married again. Once was one time too many. But Parker Eastman offers a bet to his three best friends. Whoever gets married first will have a house built for them and Kent wins.

Trouble comes to the town of Sweet Water in the guise of hooded men who terrorize the freed slaves. Parker Eastman decides to hire the freedmen and pay them the same wage as the other cowboys. It was a time of violence and suspicion in the South.

Glory pushes on to teach and finds plenty of children on the ranch who did not have any education.

Too many hopes and dreams are wrapped up in the school to allow it to fail.

Through it all, both Kent and Glory admire each other’s courage and commitment but was that enough for a happy marriage?

Another great story in the series.

**I am reviewing the audio version of this book.**

This was another great story in the series.
I liked the characters and the story line was very good.
I also like the fact, that characters reappear in other books. It’s nice to see how they are faring.
My questions about Sandra have been answered, in the later books.
It’s also interesting to learn about the time period the novel was set in.
I don’t know much about the civil war, since i live in Australia.
Little Teddy was adorable.
The mystery about the blocks was cute and had me intrigued.
The Narration was very good. The reading was done with lots of emotion and animation.
I would highly recommend this book, and also the other books in the Mail Order brides of Springwater series.
