If only I could meet my prince, Essie thought. Like the fairy tales she’d read in one of the books she’d borrowed. Young maidens were always rescued by handsome princes, or at least well-meaning young men. Where was her prince?
Gus wished she could have her happy ending. And, by gum, she deserved it. But there wasn’t anything he could do to help her. Nothing he could do to make some man swoop in and sweep her off her feet. But neither of them realized what God had in store for them.
It’s 1862, and four orphaned sisters find themselves in the bustling city of Yankton in the Dakota Territory when one of them accepts a marriage proposal from a young man who needs to marry to stake a homestead claim. In this clean Western romance series, author Jenny Creek Tanner weaves a heartwarming tale of the love the sisters have for each other, and the love they find with the rugged men of the homestead prairies of Dakota.
