Did you hear about this book? If not, I really really recommend you to read it, actually, the whole series, these are some pretty gorgeous books. 🙂
Like many other books I’ve read, these also I’ve read in college.
I remember that I would think of these books like they were a piece of cake (literally!), I read them slowly, because they had only like 200 pages.
I felt so bad when I finished a book because everything was so interesting and exciting.
The first book begins by telling the story of a young couple, who moves west to find a better life.
But their happy life is shortly over because the husband fall off a horse and dies and she remains alone in an unknown place.
I put myself in her place and I just cried for what had happened to her and of course, to people from real life.
She cried and cried until she had no tears.
They lived in their wagon until they would build up a house but they didn’t have time to do that because her husband died. She stayed there and didn’t know what to do or where to go.
Some neighbors saw the wagon and came to her, they had a funeral for her husband. At that moment she didn’t know what will be with her life, what she’ll do, she stayed there, on her husband’s grave and cried.
I can’t even imagine what people from all the world have to go through when their loved one dies at a young age, it freaks me out only to think about it.
One neighbor comes next to her and makes her a proposal (not a marriage one) and tells her to marry him so that she could stay in his house with his daughter until spring arrives and then, she will go back home with her family.
After giving this proposal a thought, she finally accepts it and moves in his house.
These book series includes 12 gorgeous books, I really recommend you to give them a try.

“Blessings sometimes show up in unrecognizable disguises. ”
“Impatience can cause wise people to do foolish things. ”
