Product Description

Soon after enrolling in a 19th-century school for ranchers---and aspiring ranchers' wives---Tressa's convinced she'll never have what it takes to brand a calf, ride a horse, or "cook up a mess of grub." Kansas-born Abel Samms would have to agree---but there's something about Tressa that attracts him anyway. Is she the partner he needs? 352 pages, softcover from Bethany.

Publisher's Description

Dowryless and desperate, Tressa Neill applies to the inaugural class of Wyatt Herdsman School in Barnett, Kansas, in 1888. The school's one-of-a-kind program teaches young women from the East the skills needed to become a rancher--or the wife of one. Shy and small for her twenty-two years, Tressa is convinced she'll never have what it takes to survive Hattie Wyatt's hands-on instruction in skills such as milking a cow, branding a calf, riding a horse, and cooking up a mess of grub for hungry ranch hands. But what other options does she have?

Abel Samms wants nothing to do with the group of potential brides his neighbor brought to town. He was smitten with an eastern girl once--and he got his heart broken. But there's something about quiet Tressa and her bumbling ways that makes him take notice. When Tressa's life is endangered, will Abel risk his own life--and his heart--to help this eastern girl?

Author Bio

Kim Vogel Sawyer is the author of fourteen novels, including several bestsellers. In her spare time, she enjoys drama, quilting, and calligraphy. She and her husband, Don, reside in Central Kansas, and have three daughters and six grandchildren.

Publisher's Weekly

Romance writer and author of 14 novels, Sawyer has written another tenderhearted tale, this one set in Barnett, Kans., in 1888. When widowed Hattie Wyatt opens a school for young women to learn the skills needed to be a rancher—or rancher’s wife—22-year-old orphan Tressa Neill becomes one of Hattie’s first students. Initially an unwilling participant forced to enroll in Hattie’s school by her aunt and uncle, the shy Tressa eventually warms to her environment. She applies herself to her studies and is soon intrigued by Abel Samms, a bachelor whose heart was broken by a girl who, like Tessa, came from the east. Encountering various dangers, Tressa and Abel are soon thrust into one another’s company by no design of their own, and a mutual attraction blossoms that neither can ignore. Sawyer’s fan base will appreciate this latest work for its heart, yet they may well be disappointed by its lack of depth or freshness. (June) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for Hopeful Heart, A - eBook.
    As always, Kim Vogel Sawyer has based her story on historical fact and shown us inside Hattie Wyatt's Herdsman School, where young women learn to become useful rancher's wives in Kansas in 1888. We focus on the "mis"adventures of Tressa, who slowly learns to handle a horse, milk a cow, cook a meal and so on. She also comes to a faith in God, and deals with issues of rejection, forgiveness and many more. It is also the story of neighboring rancher Abel, who has his own issues to deal with. There's humor, serious challenges, mystery, drama, a wonderful rural community, and a gentle romance, all working together to make for an excellent story, which I would recommend to any lover of historical romance books.

    Enjoyed reading this heartwarming story. God's love for us and that He has a good plan for us came through well- without being preachy.

    A.H.H! (Sigh) Sweet Saints, how I LOVE happy endings!

    And if you do too, then you'll enjoy reading a Hopeful Heart.

    Tressa is a shy, beautiful young woman who eventually become strong, courageous and hardworking, as the story unfolds. We also get to meet Aunt Hattie; a firm believer in God, a funny and tender woman who seeks the best for everyone around her -- including her neighbor Abel Samms, a stubborn, pigheaded rancher :) whom God eventually redeems, and open his eyes to the greatest gift of all : LOVE! So many beautiful lessons, such as knowing God as a Father, trusting Him to have the best plan, even when things are not working out, and of course, learning to forgive whoever has harmed us -- even if it should be the last person we've expected to do so. Sometimes, it's good to remind ourselves of such things, through stories such as this one! --I liked it. The love stories are too cute! and I've even written down some inspiring, encouraging words I've gotten from this book. Keep up the good work Mrs Sawyer!
