With Alberta in the grip of the Depression, Louisa Morgan is desperate to bolster her family's finances. But how can she tutor bedridden Ellie Hamilton? The little tomboy is more interested in making mischief than studying sums. And the girl's bond with her handsome papa is another reminder to Louisa of the children she'll never have.
For Emmet Hamilton, strength means shouldering burdens alone. He never thought he'd let himself share his child, or his heart, ever again. But before long, Louisa's kindness and optimism start to change the cowboy's mind. Maybe he can gain the courage to trust again-in Louisa, in God's grace, and in this new family..

Linda Ford dares to discuss the sensitive topic of infertility in her new novel The Cowboy Father. Through her character Louisa, we are given a glimpse inside the mind of a woman experiencing this first-hand. We feel for her loss, but at the same time, are moved by her dependence on God alone.
I enjoyed this book, but I wasn't pulled into the storyline as I would have hoped. I loved learning about how the depression and drought affected Canada much like here in America.

I received a complimentary e-book from Harlequin Publisher and NetGalley for my honest review.
