From Goodreads:

Twenty-six-year-old Katie Macauley has placed all her hope in Hope Springs, a small town in the 1870 Wyoming Territory. But if she wants to return home to Ireland to make amends with her estranged family, she'll need to convince the influential Joseph Archer to hold true to his word and keep her on his payroll as his housekeeper despite her Irish roots. The town is caught in an ongoing feud between the Irish and the "Reds" the frontiersmen who would rather see all the Irish run out of town and the Irish immigrants who are fighting to make a home for themselves in the New World. When Joseph agrees to keep Katie
on as his housekeeper, the feud erupts anew, and Katie becomes the reluctant figurehead for the Irish townsfolk. As the violence escalates throughout the town, Katie must choose between the two men who have been vying for her love though only one might be able to restore hope to her heart.


  1. A Wyoming territory book sounds interesting since I recently moved to Montana. Close to home :-)

  2. Haven't heard about this one but I love the cover and summary sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!
    Thanks for stopping by my WOW.

  3. Sounds really good. I really like when books are out of the usual spectrum of states.
