Every one had an opinion on the morality of actresses.
Henrietta saw more to Juliet Drake than the rest of the town.
She literally forced her brother-in-law, Amos Morgan to hired Juliet as housekeeper and companion to his sister, Frances.
Amos, at 36, was not about to fall into the clutches of another designing woman. He had his ailing sister, Frances and an impressionable 16 year old son, Ethan to look out for.
Ethan was favorably impressed with Juliet which further angered Amos. But Frances needed help and he couldn't run the house and the farm both. He could not face the thought of Frances dying.
Juliet's bungling attempts to cook soon had Amos ready to send her back but Frances had other ideas. She taught Juliet how to cook and clean house.
Juliet couldn't believe how Amos could kiss. Her very own first kiss was an eye-opener. Amos couldn't believe that a woman as young as Juliet would be interested in a stuffy old farmer - unless it was for money or security.
Wonderful, emotional love story that just had to work out - more in keeping with the honorable attitudes of the times - wonderful characters - so heart-warming and realistic.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - another of her keepers.
A love beyond all dreams
Once burned by a beautiful woman, Amos Morgan vowed never to lay his heart bare again. At thirty-six he was one of the most prominent farmers in western Nebraska. He filled his life tending the land and caring for his young son and his fragile, ailing sister Frances. But when Frances' needs become too great, Amos knew he must seek help. He never expected to find Juliet Drake, a golden-haired beauty whose blue eyes could melt the coldest of hearts.
Juliet, whose own life had known sorrow, yearned for a true home. She found it on the Morgan farm. Yet, she wanted more-the ruggedly handsome Amos.
