Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Stephanie Grace Whitson's latest historical novel features an adventurous young heroine who works for the Pony Express.
Orphaned Annie Paxton and her brothers may have lost the only home they've ever known, but they're determined to make a better future in St. Joseph, Missouri. Annie dreams of a pretty house with window boxes, and having friends, and attending church every week. But then her brothers spot the ad for a new venture called the Pony Express. "Wanted," it reads, "Young, skinny fellows not over eighteen. Must be expert riders and willing to risk death daily. Orphans preferred." Sure enough, both her brothers land jobs as Express messengers, and Annie puts her dreams on hold to work as a cook at Clearwater Ranch, a station along the Pony Express route.

Annie struggles to adapt to her new job--work made all the more challenging when she has so many to feed and few ingredients. The gruff station owner, George, doesn't seem inclined to make her life any easier, or at least not at first. But slowly a friendship builds between them. When Annie attracts the attention of a refined, dashing lieutenant from the nearby fort, she'll have to learn how to trust her instincts and follow her heart, even if she's conflicted about which way it's leading her.

    This is one spunky, touching, tenderhearted, yet lighthearted, Spiritual and yet it is down to earth. I, honestly, felt a little honored being chosen to read this novel, yes I call it a novel because it has earned my respect enough for me to call it a novel. It is a story of sacred trust and fatherly love being broken and how.To gain it back through a GODLY FATHER love and trust. This also throws in some history that you say Oh Yeh now this is how history should be taught. The story was oh so genuine. I kept wishing that I had two brothers like that. My heart was going through so many emotions and HELLO EVERYBODY you are suppose to because that is the sign of a good author on that can make you feel and one that can make you run the whole gambit of emotions. This is a love story, a pony express story, a come to JESUS which is THE most important thing in the book. Annie and her two brothers get involved with the pony express, her as someone who works at their cafe. and her two brothers Emmet, the peacemaker and Frank, the scrapper and no I do not mean scrapbooking scrapper. LT. and George vie for Annie and you will not believe what happens. They meet her at the cafe.What will happen to George? What happens to the Ltd.? What happens to her brothers? Do her brothers and Annie ever find JESUS? Do they realize HE never left that HE was always there? Will Annie find out there is something beyond The LORD is my ShephRd?

    If you like books with a combination of history, romance and humor entwined with a dose of scripture to encourage at the twists and turns of life's events....you will love this book. This is one of those books that you stand at the stove and read while cooking supper because you can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter. I have read everything Stephanie Grace Whitson has written and this is one of my favorites.

    This is a nice, gentle tale of a young woman who works for The Pony Express. She is not a rider, but a cook at one of the stations that the riders rode into as well as stagecoaches stopping in. Annies job is to feed the riders, passengers and stagecoach drivers. She didnt want to come west, but her two brothers volunteered her for the job of cook without her knowledge. Her brothers are going to be riders for The Pony Express to earn money to help make her dream of a home come to fruition, so her options were to go with them or be left behind, alone in a new town of St. Jo, Missouri. She and her brothers had been evicted from the family farm after their fathers death. Unbeknownst to them, he had big gambling debts and the only way to satisfy them was to sell the farm. They decided to try to big city of St. Jo for a brighter future. When they hit town, they quickly learn of a good paying job with a startup company and gain employment for all three siblings.

    Upon arriving at the station, Annie has a rough start as the station owner, George Mason, doesnt seem to like her. She burns food, uses too much food and doesnt know where any supplies are kept. Her brothers seem to thrive at their jobs, but Annie is miserable. She doesnt give up and over time she gains the interest of a soldier at a nearby fort. She also learns her way around the kitchen and shows George she is a good cook. Annie and George slowly form a friendship. When a crisis hits, Annie always turns to the little Scripture she was taught by her mother and then to some Scripture passages one of her brother has highlighted for her.

    I really enjoyed the Authors Note after the conclusion of the story. I found it interesting what her research did and did not turn up about The Pony Express and the role of women in the west. They had such a difficult life with daily struggles just to survive. I liked Annies brother Emmet, who always pointed Annie to Scripture or reminded her of Gods character when she needed it most. He was such an encourager and steady, positive influence on her. This was my first book from this author, and I look forward to reading more of her works. Wont you join me?

    During my childhood, I remember noticing the Pony Express Monument on an excursion to St. Joseph, Missouri. I couldn't resist reading a novel in which the main character, Ann E. Paxton, cooks at a Pony Express station. Her two brothers, Frank and Emmett, are hired to ride for the Pony Express. I loved this book! The characters are diverse and risk-takers in friendships, love, and adventure. Themes of faith, hospitality, generosity, and respect for all people are prevalent. The author also includes interesting facts regarding the Pony Express.
