Jodi Thomas has done it again! This sweet love story is a sleeper; when you finish the novel, you realize what an unusual (and engaging) story it is.

Ford Colston is a unique man; since the time of his mother's death, he has been treated by his family and neighbors as a leper - unsuitable and unfit for human interaction. Instead of moaning, "Woe is me," Ford makes a life for himself on his own terms.

He worked hard - he earned $10/wagon load of old bison bones (that were bleaching out on the prairie). It was a singular occupation, but it helped Ford earn his dream of his own ranch. He is lonely but satisfied with his lot in life.

As a way to have some interaction with the community, Colston is a member of the school board. He's been sent to find a teacher for the town.

As Ford is homeward-bound to Saint's Roost (an unusual Texas town that tolerates no gambling, drinking or swearing), he is robbed at gunpoint by a shadowy figure. Before long, he realizes that it is a young woman - who demands his clothes!

Although the robber declares that they will never meet again, the reader knows better. Thus begins a lively tale about 2 lonely people finding each other.

I've re-read this book several times; Jodi Thomas' skill as a writer shines in this tome. Enjoy!
