HOME ON THE RANCH
Judith Bowen has a "talent for spinning a powerful story."
West of the Blue River, Wyoming
Fraser McKenna is the owner of Westbank Ranch. Strong, too silent, a still-grieving widower.
Martha Thomas is the woman who comes to stay.
Martha's at loose ends, her job "downsized" out of existence. She's a city woman driving through the western states, looking for adventure. Then, in a small-town Wyoming newspaper, she sees this ad:
WANTED: Lady Companion for two girls. Remote location. No cooking/housekeeping required.
On a whim, she applies for the joband gets hired. That day, her life starts to change, and so do the lives of Fraser and the two little girls.
Who would think she'd end up married to the rancher from Blue River? Even if it is a marriage of convenience, a marriage for the children's sake. And even if she has to do the proposing herself .
