An exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.

Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first.

Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone's prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged--do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other's match?

Great Start to a New Series
5 stars By Margot, Mar 29 2015
I just love the "Englisch meets Amish" genre of Christian romance novel, and this is one of the best.All the characters were so well described and likable, the action was certainly plentiful, and the romance was delightful. Emma was most lovable, and Amish girl devoted to her faith, her family and her close-knit Amish community. Luke was also very endearing - a cocky young cowboy leading his first cattle drive with a great sense of devotion to the task. But he is also a godly man, ready to lend a helping hand to a family in need - Emma's family. Love blossoms and the story is so beautifully developed - the dilemma both young ones face as getting together across the great divide of their lifestyles seems so unlikely, but staying apart seems so impossible too. I'm already reading the next in the series! Highly recommended.

Western Twist
4 stars By Jenny, Oct 29 2013
The Heart's Frontier is a fun easy read. Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith have creatively mixed Amish culture with the rugged Wild West. The story is set against the backdrop of a gruelling cattle drive, complete with murdering thieves and cattle rustlers. Amish patience and abhorrence of conflict creates enormous tension between the central characters. Yet somehow a resolution is found. Woven between the tension that a mix of Cowboys and Amish daughters would naturally create a love match is found between Luke Carson, the trail boss, and Emma Switzer, a young Amish woman caught up in events not of her making.
The Heart's Frontier is a journey of love, spiced with humour and conflict, in an unexpected setting for anyone enjoying stories that reveal a little of the Amish way of life.
