There’s only one thing that Sarah Marshall wants – to get back to Chicago. Instead, she’s trapped in Kansas, tending her sick aunt, destitute, and trying desperately to find a way home. In the meantime, Karen Harper, the mother of three grown men in need of a wife, is desperate to keep Sarah at Harper’s Stage Stop. Surely, one of her three handsome sons will do just fine! This begins Vickie McDonough’s newest book, Whispers on the Prairie, a gentle message about love, forgiveness, and trust, all wrapped in a delightful romance that entertains and inspires.
The problem is: which son? The oldest, Aaron, already lost one wife and is now the single father of two precocious children; the middle son, Josh, can’t wait to have his chance with the pretty lady; or Ethan, the youngest, who could care less. He just wants her to leave. At least that’s what he keeps telling himself. In the meantime, the word has spread in Kansas that a pretty young thing needs a wife and there are more than enough takers. Tensions mount and the adventures begin.
What I love about Vickie McDonough’s books is that her stories not only entertain, but they also leave you with a gentle message of faith. For a girl who married a computer geek, instead of a rancher as planned, Vickie McDonough can still spin some of the best western romance this side of the Mississippi. I’m can't wait to read the next book in Vickie’s Pioneer Promises series!
