This is another one of those books from the library with the hearts on the side. I enjoyed this story, it was sweet and clean and romancy. I know that's not a word, but I'm going to use it anyway! Lark is a young girl trying to find her way in the world. She's an orphan and is out west trying to find a job so that she can have shelter for the winter. She's tried everywhere in town, but no one seems to need one more person to help them for the winter. Then she hears about two bachelor's whose housekeeper has just died. That sounds about perfect to Lark, she knows how to cook and clean! Then she meets them, Slater is grumpy and doesn't think that his younger brother Tom should have hired such a young girl to do their work. As soon as she's made dinner, though, he decides that it won't be so bad to have a young girl around who knows how to cook better than a couple of "old" bachelors.
