As the second book in the trilogy, this book ties up the loose ends from the first book. The quiet gunsmith Hiram wonders if happiness with the also widowed shopkeeper Libby might be possible. The sister of Hiram's deceased wife comes to town and is determined to marry Hiram, even though he wants nothing to do with her.
Meanwhile, the schoolteacher meets her felon uncle, that she has never before heard of, wondering where he came from & what happenened to him. All of my favorite characters, especially those in the shooting club, return in this book that I really enjoyed. I couldn't wait to start the next book after I finished it.
These stories have good chrisitan values when it comes to dating, or courting as it was called back then. These stories also show how being a christian isn't easy, but it is most certainly worth it; because with God we can do all things.
