My Thoughts: Two teachers. One is a city girl and one a professor returning to his hometown.. One job opening which they have both been hired for. This was such an interesting story as they are both pushed into a fight for what she believe is rightfully hers and what he feels is his because, well, he needs it for his own reasons. The story became quite interesting when they are thrown into a one room school for a trial period to see who will be given the job. She is all business but he has a not so serious fun side that she sees as trouble in more ways than one. They both quickly find that in sparring for this job they will find trouble inside and outside of the classroom. If you like good old fashioned romance with a showing of faith all wrapped up in one entertaining story, you will enjoy this one.
About the Book:
Humiliated after her broken engagement, Claire Montgomery flees her comfortable life in San Francisco for a teaching position in Pine Creek, Washington, a dot of a town nestled in the rugged Cascade Mountains. She’s determined to succeed—for once in her life—only to discover, upon her arrival, that success will have to be won. Thanks to a school board error, two teachers have been hired.
When scandal forces professor Barrett Clarke from his position, he returns to Pine Creek where his uncle, chairman of the school board, sets forth an irresistible offer: teach one year in return for ranch-land. For this would-be rancher, nothing is more tempting than resurrecting his childhood dream, and nothing can deter him from earning that land.
Except perhaps Claire Montgomery. Losing the battle for the classroom means losing the ranch land, but winning may mean losing Claire’s heart.
