"When Susannah goes to Dakota territory as a mail-order bride she finds something she never dreamed she would-true love. With no prospects for marriage and her parents recently deceased, Susannah Freemont agrees to go west to the Dakota territory to marry her minister's homesteading brother, Jesse. But Susannah is painfully shy, doesn't see herself as worthy of love from either a husband or from God, and lives in constant fear that Jesse is going to ship her back to Detroit. In spite of her petite size and the fact that Susannah doesn't look like she could survive on the prairie, Jesse quickly discovers that his new wife is a greater blessing than he even hoped for. The years she spent as her father's veterinary assistant allow her to save Jesse's ox and twin calves and to help neighboring farmers with their animals. But Susannah's feelings of unworthiness are deeply rooted, and she can't believe that Jesse's praise-or the tenderness and love he shows-could possibly last. The thawing of her heart seems almost as distant as Spring in the midst of the winter blanketing the Dakota prairie"-- Provided by publisher.

Catherine Richmond is a great author and lives in Nebraska. She has 2 books in our libraries and they are both great. One has old Omaha history included.

I enjoyed this novel very much. It's a Christian romance that was not preachy. The characters were realistic, and I liked the way the author gave peeks into the reason why Susannah, and Jesse reacted to life in Dekota without force feeding the information. A single sentence tells chapters of their past. Susannah's growth from a painfully shy 30 year old, old maid to a strong, confident woman is the core of this story. Great Read!

If you love historical fiction this one is for you. I read a lot of historical fiction and this one is one of my favorite. Even if you are not a fan of HF I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
