I feel invested in this series after reading the first book, Ruby. In the second installment, Pearl finds her way to Medora after running away from a controlling father who has arranged her marriage to a widower (with five children) she doesn't love. Pearl had warning of her father's plan and applied to be the first teacher in Medora. She loves teaching at the mission in her hometown and although she has never been so far from her family, she is desperate to escape. When she is hired, she gets her younger brother to help her. Upon arrival in Dakota, Pearl questions her actions. The town is small and undeveloped. The station master directs her to the hotel where she meets Ruby, the owner. They soon become best friends and Pearl finally shares her story. Meanwhile, Pearl's father is not happy. He comes to take her home. Will Pearl's new friends and especially Carl be able to help Pearl when her father arrives or will Pearl give in and return to a life of unhappiness to please her Father? Perhaps the prayers of her new friends will availeth much!
