A Hopeful Heart

Kim Vogel Sawyer
Also Available In
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?

Another Fantastic Offering From Kim Vogel Sawyer
5 stars By Margot, Dec 04 2013
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 neighbouring rancher Abel, who has his own issues to deal with. There's humour, 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.
