Beyond the White River

Joe Condie is new to the town of Mustang in Wyoming Territory, he's a bachelor and every time he's in town, he notices a young women named Faith Frisbee. She has tons of kids with her every time he sees her, but never a husband, and she doesn't seem to be old enough to have had all of those children. Joe figures that she's most likely a widow, but when he asks some of the townsfolk, they tell him that she just collects orphans and kids that don't seem to be wanted by anyone else. Joe eventually gets up the courage to talk to her, but she's quite rude to him, but Joe doesn't give up, there's just something about Faith Frisbee that draws him to her. He figures that she must have been hurt pretty badly by someone, sometime, and that he'll just have to tread very carefully. So he starts very slowly by finding things that he can help her do around her home, just to be neighborly. But as Faith points out, he lives several miles away and can't rightly be called a neighbor. Soon though, Joe wins her over with his tireless service to her and her boys. But when Joe asks her to marry him, she says no and goes back to being as unkind to him as ever. Will Faith ever be able to open her heart to Joe so that they can both move on with their lives?

This book was a quick read for me. The story was okay and even showed promise of being great, but for me, there was just something missing. I'm not sure why, but I never really got to "know" the characters enough that I could care what happened to them. For me that really makes or breaks a story.
