The Heart's Frontier By Virginia Smith and Lori Copeland

An exciting new Amish-meets-Wild West adventure from bestselling authors Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith weaves an entertaining and romantic tale for devoted fans and new readers.
Kansas,1881--On a trip to visit relatives, Emma Switzer's Amish family is robbed of all their possessions, leaving them destitute and stranded on the prairie. Walking into the nearest trading settlement, they pray to the Lord for someone to help. When a man lands in the dust at her feet, Emma looks down at him and thinks, The Lord might have cleaned him up first.
Luke Carson, heading up his first cattle drive, is not planning on being the answer to anyone's prayers, but it looks as though God has something else in mind for this kind and gentle man. Plain and rugged--do the two mix? And what happens when a dedicated Amish woman and a stubborn trail boss prove to be each other's match?


Virginia Smith is the author of more than a dozen inspirational novels and more than fifty articles and short stories. An avid reader with ecclectic tastes in fiction, Ginny writes in a variety of styles, from lighthearted relationship stories to breath-snatching suspense.
This is NOT your average Amish read. It was a very fun and easy read. I really enjoyed it.  I have never read a book that was part Amish and part western.This book had the most loveable characters in it. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to opening up book  two A Plain and Simple Heart. Ginny is a gifted author for sure. I soon hope to get a copy of book three A Cowboy at Heart.
I was given a copy of this book by Ginny Smith Thank you so much Ginny!
