RANCHER DADDY (4) by Ann Roth: Jenny Wyler is the new one-room schoolteacher in Saddler’s Prairie. She becomes very fond of one of her students, Abby Dawson, who is unable to speak. Working with Abby’s father Adam to help her learn to talk, Jenny realizes that Abby may not be the only Dawson she is falling for. Adam has been wary of relationships since his wife’s death and has turned all the love he has left into making sure that Abby is happy and well adjusted, so he does not plan on falling for her teacher. Roth’s story is compelling as Jenny realizes that in running from her past she just may have run into her future.
