Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister--and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk--they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"--but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.
Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

Mary Connealy has done it again!
Combining both the Western and Romantic Comedy genres of Christian literature, you will be taken on a fast-paced adventure that you will enjoy from the first page until the very last.
The story is well-written with wonderfully characters that all who read the book will enjoy. I have loved that she brought in a few characters from other books, and I cannot wait to see how the story lines and characters become more developed in the second book in this series, Now and Forever.
A great read with comedy, romance, western and mystery all rolled into one!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
