Summary

So much has been accomplished. Lillian Walsh has stepped out courageously beyond what she'd ever dreamed of being able to achieve. Two years ago, she was an only child, living in a big house with her adoptive parents. Now, she shares the large home with her newly rediscovered sister, Grace, and the orphaned children to whom Grace has devoted her life. 

But then the letter arrives - an official complaint revoking the sisters' permission to manage their little children's home. An untimely winter trip across the prairie is necessary to defend their reputation and to repent from their well-intentioned lie. And Walter, who was once merely Lillian's childhood friend, is now her staunch support, transporting them all and standing beside them in their present trial. However, another wave is coming. 

More children are being sent, escorted by an unlikely advocate, a British sailor who once ran away from home. Ebenezer Waldin's scarred heart softens to the children's plight - even to the point of breaking rules. Will there be consequences? And will there be a loving place for all of them once they arrive in the West?

Love the story but not the narrator

When you have several accents to deal with its best to get a narrator who can deal with them. Her English voices were awful, Bens Liverpool accent was ……….no words to describe it really, not sure what she thought it was.
I nearly turned it off but got involved with the people so kept listening. If the next book has this narrator I hope she has done some research into English accents or I will not be listening.

Not as good as usual

Sorry was hard to follow in places especially the beginning. I finished it but it was much more hard going than her usual books.

Captivating storyline

What an exciting, thrilling, and heart tugging story. It made my 3 hour drive fly by and then held my attention so much I had to listen in between my free time. It kept me coming back until the wee hours of the morning. Can't wait to purchase the next one in the series.

The narrator did great and was very good at portraying the characters.Could have been better on the story line compared to the Nanette Ole West series.

Loved this story.

This book caught my attention from the beginning and I couldn't stop listening throughout. I hope there will be a follow up book very soon.

Characters you will love

I absolutely love this series. Each story holds me in suspense waiting to find out if things are gonna work out for the best for each character. I appreciate each characters development, that they are displaying characteristics which I appreciate in people. Gentleness, humility, hard-working, integrity. I love these stories and the characters!
