Prairie Moon cover

Abigail Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father’s illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can “marry up” with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he’s put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the “little city gal” in their midst. But as time goes by, his heart goes out to the teacher who tries so diligently to smooth the rough edges from the down-to-earth men. How can he teach her that perfection won’t bring happiness

This was a very enjoyable book.  You really got into the lives of all in here:  Abigail, Mack, Helena, Mr. Patterson…even the Sheriff.  As in all books, there is one person you actually begin to not like.  That was Mr. Nance.  With this set in the 1800’s, their talk was a little different than it is now.  Of course, you had the rich trying to teach your country folk manners to receive their wives.  Back then you paid someone to match you up with a spouse.  I call this book a prairie/western along with a mystery and romance all put into one.  That is what made it so enjoyable.  It wasn’t just a Western.  You had other aspects to it.  Kim Vogel Sawyer has a wonderful flair in presenting to her audience a wonderful story that does not neglect the Gospel message.
