BOOK BLURB: Inspirational Historical Romance Novel

Rebecca Hoyt’s one constant was her dedication to her beloved students. Now, a rebellious child could cost her the job she loves. Without her teaching position, what would she do?

Detective Jesse Rand prides himself in protecting the people who ride the railroads. But, when his own sister and brother-in-law are killed by train robbers, the detective blames himself. Yet, another duty calls—he must venture to Riverton where his niece and nephews were left in the care of their beautiful and stubborn teacher, Rebecca Hoyt. They need to mourn and heal, but Jesse is determined to find his sister’s killers. Rebecca is willing to help care for the children, but she also fears getting too close to them—or their handsome uncle—knowing the day will come when he’ll take them back to Chicago.

Will Jesse and Rebecca find a way to open their hearts and work together? Or will they, along with the children, lose out on love?

What I would've done to deal with a rebellious child, as a teacher, who's life is on the line, would be to: either put them in detention, and have them write sentences; or just expel them altogether. jesus is my lord and savior forty-three (43) at gmail dot com.

Rebellious children are tough - and in a classroom where you're limited to how much you can do or influence - it could be even more challenging. But, I think your ideas are solid, Lauren. Consequences are important to learning better behavior, but sometimes it's difficult to know "what" will work best, isn't it?

1. No, I haven't been to Chicago but I would love to visit there.

2. I'm not sure how I would deal with a rebellious child but I would certainly do a lot of praying. In today's society, it is very common for young people to accuse the teachers who have tried to correct them and it is almost impossible to discipline them.

Hi, Connie!

Praying certainly would be helpful! A lot of wisdom is needed in those cases, especially today with how careful teachers need to be in correcting students - and rightfully so. I've seen some out-of-control situations on the news that have been absolutely crazy.

But, those situations are few compared to how well teachers usually deal with children. Not all - but I think most teachers - really do care and want the best for their students. I have a few teacher friends, and they seriously put their heart and soul into those kids.

I have never been to Chicago but may get the chance to go some day. Thanks for the chance to win.

Hi, Vickie!

Thanks for popping in and leaving a comment. I hope you get the chance to visit the city too!
