Helpful Score: 1
Emma and the Outlaw is the second book of "The Orphan Train" series that Linda Lael Miller wrote. I enjoyed the series and each book was special in its own telling. Emma, the town librarian, wants to fit into society so much that she tries to deny herself fun and love. She tries very hard to keep her womanly side under wraps with a locked key, but alas the Outlaw comes to town in the form of Steven Fairfax and the rest is pure enjoyable reading. Everyone has a story and Steven isn't any different as the story unfolds we find that there is much more to this young man than meets the eye. Emma learns that just because you want to be respected and live the life to be respected that you aren't always treated that way and it is a hard lesson to learn. Stevens problems come to life and as Ms Miller weaves the story around these two people you are swept away into a storm of love, life, and mystery of Emma and Steven. I love stories of the South and the West and to read one where both are woven into the storyline was really enjoyable. Ms Miller is an excellent writer and her stories always leave me with a smile on my face and lift to my heart. I love a good romance with a happy ending!
