Hold on to your hat and get ready for another great adventure with Mary Connealy. It all begins when Grant meets the orphan train in Sour Springs, Texas and plans to take the last two orphans home with him. One problem, Hannah Cartwright is determined he can’t take them to what she believes will be a life of slavery. She is appalled to learn how man y orphan children Grant has taken in the past few years. Hannah decides to stay in town as the new school teacher in order to keep close tabs on the two new children, especially since the little girl Libby is Hannah’s own sister. Hannah knows only cruelty and a hard life as an orphan herself and can’t believe Grant’s intentions are anything but evil. Again Mary uses children to bring delight to the soul and a smile to the lips. Libby and Charlie will capture your heart as they prove their loyalty to their new father in the end and save the day. If you enjoyed Petticoat Ranch and Calico Canyon, you will fall in love with the delightful characters Mary created for Gingham Mountain.
