At first part of the story I was not sure that I liked Willa she was so bitter. Then I realized how bad it would be for a while going through those issues. No wonder she
did not trust gentlemens words and actions.
Willa did keep her feelings away from the children she taught and she cared for the children. She cared and helped those around her.
Willa Wright's fiance left her by leaving her a note saying he was going west and follow his dream. Her dad left her and her mom when she was really young. Since her father did not work for the mill owner anymore they would have lost thier home too.
Her mother did all the laundry for the single loggers so they would have a home. Her mom worked all the time doing the laundry.
The new Preacher was in town and he came with a little girl Sally 5 and boy Joshua 7. His niece and nephew. Thier parents died 7 weeks ago.
Matthew Calvert was over whelmed at being a parent all of a sudden especially to a little girl. But he would love them and do is best for them.
Matthew was instanly drawn to Willa when they met and he was determined to get to know her better. He has never felt like that before.
Willa's heart hurt for the children and she was willing to help them to feel welcome at school and smile.
One of Willa girlfriend was going after the very single preacher and told Willa all about how she loved him and was sure he would see her as a wife. But she did not really care about the kids.
Willa did not believe that God loved and answered prayers. Which was a big concern of the preachers. A lot of women were setting their caps for the preacher but he was only interested in getting to know Willa.
It was a clean read and I really enjoyed reading the Wooing the Schoolmarm and would like to see Willa's friends have their own book in the future.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
