On My Nightstand - Courting Miss Amsel by Kim Vogel Sawyer
Edythe Amsel finally sees her dreams coming true. As the schoolmarm in Walnut Hill, she can enjoy molding young minds. Reality hits hard when several parents fight against her newfangled teaching methods.
Her troubles escalate as the town's eligible bachelors seek to court her. Determined to make a life for herself, she resists their attentions. Only Joel Townsend doesn't chase her. His tenderness and friendship catch her by surprise, but courting would ruin her future plans.
Taking care of his orphaned nephews and running a farm keep Joel busy. Hurt by a former love interest, he's not ready to put his heart on the line...until Miss Amsel catches his eye.
Kim Vogel Sawyer's books always leave me with that "ahhh" ending. Her stories have strong spiritual themes and emphasize putting God first in daily life. She's become a favorite here at Christian Writer/Reader Connection.
If you like warm and fuzzy, you'll love this book. I highly recommend it.
