Product Description

Edythe Amsel is delighted with her first teaching assignment: a one-room schoolhouse in Walnut Hill, Nebraska. Independent, headstrong, and a strong believer in a well-rounded education, Edythe is ready to open the world to the students in this tiny community. But is Walnut Hill ready for her?

Joel Townsend is thrilled to learn the town council hired a female teacher to replace the ruthless man who terrorized his nephews for the past two years. Having raised the boys on his own since their parents' untimely deaths, Joel believes they will benefit from a woman's influence. But he sure didn't bargain on a woman like Miss Amsel. Within the first week, she has the entire town up in arms over her outlandish teaching methods, which include collecting leaves, catching bugs, making snow angels, and stringing ropes in strange patterns all over the schoolyard. Joel can't help but notice that she's also mighty pretty with her rosy lips, fashionable clothes, and fancy way of speaking.

    So before this one, I had only read one other book by Kim and that was a long time ago. However, I had really enjoyed it_and now, I'm not sure why I haven't read more since, because I'll definitely be reading a lot more by this author in the future! I really enjoyed this book. I loved the Midwest setting and had no trouble picturing it. Joel, the main guy, is a sweetheart and I liked him. Edythe Amsel (ooo-la-la, that name I love!) was a great leading lady. And Johnny and Robert, two young boys who were supporting characters central to the story, were extremely lovable. The whole book had an easy pace and great writing. Kim masterfully presents this sweet story, and I'm so glad I read it! Definitely excited to read more by her in the near future.

    This book made such an impression on me, that I couldn't remember I had read it before until about halfway through. While I do think author Kim Vogel Sawyer is a very good writer, I couldn't get into this book. I tried and tried to feel something, anything toward the heroine, but couldn't raise any sort of connection with Edythe Amsel.

    I thought all of the characters were fairly well developed. I understood the background behind each one, or at least I think I did. Maybe I didn't and that's why I didn't connect. I did like Miss Amsel's teaching methods, and wished my children had teachers like her. I also thought the look into the Women's Right to Vote issue was very well written.

    I loved the two little boys, the nephews of Joel Townsend, and thought their personalities were quite charming. I thought Joel was a tad desperate.

    There was a twist in the story about halfway through, that even though I wasn't looking for it at first, was fairly predictable, although the character kind of threw me for a loop. I don't want to give it away, but I will say I didn't see this particular character going in quite this direction.

    All-in-all, this is definitely not staying on my "Keeper" shelf, but it doesn't mean that I wouldn't love to give author Kim Vogel Sawyer another try.

    I enjoyed this book very much. Reading about history and period romances is a favorite of mine. We take so much for granted in our lives and to read about a one room school house and the creative ways Miss Amsel would teach her children and how even then the school board questioned her teaching methods. I loved how the story takes it's time with the character falling in love and not rushing into a romance like we have a tendency to do now.
