By Dor'y Nicolas
Regular price $19.00

On a farm near a small town in southern Minnesota, Jonah and Mary live with the three youngest of their seven children. Kary, now seventeen, is smart, ambitious, and pretty, but not much for dating. That reserve is shaken when the older, handsome Jake is hired by her father to paint their house. Though they get off to a shaky start, resistance grows into interest, friendship, and finally a pure love based on trust, honesty, respect, and of course, physical attraction. Nevertheless, challenges arise, and they find themselves pulled in different directions. Are Kary and Jake destined to part as friends, or will they be able to rekindle the flame they once had? It all happens on Cottonwood Farm.

I love this book! The story was very lively and kept your interest. It's a sweet love tale. I also really like the cover as it depicts an actual farm. Would love to read more from Dor'y in the future!

Great storytelling! The characters and their dialogue kept my attention throughout. The ending came too quickly for me though. I wanted it to continue. Hopefully there will be a sequel!
