All alone on the Kansas prairie, Summer Steadman has few options. With her husband and children lost to illness, she has no desire to continue on farther west to where she and her husband planned to build their future. Instead, she seeks employment in a small Mennonite community in order to be near the graves of her family. Widower Peter Ollenburger, the local gristmill owner, needs someone to teach his young son. When he hears of a "learned woman" in town, he believes she is the answer to his prayers. He soon discovers, however, that helping this outsider may have troublesome consequences. There is little this father will not do for his son, but as the boy begins to look at Summer as more than a teacher, Peter must make a choice. Does he marry this woman to give his son a new mother, or does he marry only for love? Will Summer's broken heart ever be able to love again?

I mostly enjoyed Waiting for Summer's Return. I liked the way the plot progressed and I liked both the lead charaters, although I did feel that one conversion late in the book was a little too convenient and easy. My major complaint was that, while the way the German-English speakers spoke is probab...

Just not for me. A freebie that I couldn't finish. Sounded better than it was.
