    Louise is looking for a job She was very sick and now is hoping to help pay the medical bills by getting a job She is also dealing with the news that she can not have children because of the illness she had The job she ends up getting is to tutor a young girl who has a broken leg and can not going to school Also the girls father is uite handsome and kind and Louise starts to have feeling for him even though she does not think any man would want her because she can not have kids Emmet wants to only keep his little girl safe and he feels like he has failed When the new tutor upsets her he is ready to send her on her way but over time he comes to care for her Will Emmet be able to over come things from his past to fall in love again and can Louise see her worth even if she can not have kids? Read this book to find out This book was okay but I did not love itWhat I liked I like the time period and the family It is interesting to read how hard people had to work during this time period to keep food on the table and a roof on their head I felt the characters where believable and I hoped things would work out for themWhat I did not like As much as I like the characters I did not feel like I connected with them In the first book Louise came across very fragile almost like she could barely walk and might never be healthy enough to get a job etc So when in this book she was healthy except for not being able to have kids she just did not even feel like the same character from the first book Emmet and his daughter where okay but he just up and left his ranch because he daughter had broken her leg which seemed like a bit of a stretch to be able to leave it that long His daughter started out a spoiled brat but slowly got better but I just did not like her that much and I felt the plot was a little week Over all it was an okay book to read but I found the short novella after it was interesting then the main story I probably will read the third book when it comes out because I am curious about the youngest sister but this is not a series I am in love with

    During the Depression jobs were scarce so when Louisa Morgan is offered a job tutoring Ellie Hamilton who is confined to bed in a body cast while she recovers from a broken leg Louisa sees it as a way to earn some money to help contribute to her families finances Besides she can certainly relate to being sick since she had suffered pneumonia twice as well as a bout of influenzaBecause of the toll the sickness took on her body she is unable to bear children and has decided that she will never marryEmmet Hamilton lost his wife a few years ago and is now a single father to Ellie When Ellie breaks her leg he moves her to his aunts house in town and decides she needs a tutor He carries some issues from his past that causes him to believe that he will never fall in love again but when he meets Louisa her wonderful disposition draws him to her Can he overcome the burdens that he carries from the past to open his heart again?While it took me several chapters to really become immersed in this story once it did I found myself unable to put it down I found the characters uite believable and Louisa's positive attitude was wonderfulI really wasn't sure that I was going to like the character of Ellie because she seemed like a spoiled little girl but eventually was won over and actually understood why she acted the way she did I thought it was so nice that she found a friend in Leilaand actually how things worked out for Leila in the endWhile this story was a bit predictable overall I really enjoyed it I found it interesting to read about how the depression affected AlbertaNot only did I enjoy watching the relationship develop between Louisa and Emmet but also how Louisa found what her heart longed forFans of inspirational historical romance will surely enjoy reading this storyA complimentary copy of this book was provided by Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Well lately I have had the chance to read a romance from Harleuin Love Inspired Historical through NetGallery Yeah it has been ages since I have read one of these It takes me back to my teen years Way way way back folks But it was nice to have the chance to read something that was light enough to be consumed in a tub soak The Cowboy Father is the third of a series by Linda Ford It started off with Louise knowing she needed to help her family out But having been uite ill for sometime she if fearful of venturing out Especially to help a child You see Louise's illness left her were she would no longer be able to have a child That emptiness created a barrier where she was scared to be near children for desire that would never be satisfied 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 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

    The Cowboy Father is a very sweet love story It takes place during the depression in Alberta Canada While the plot is something we've seen before the characters are so real that it is easily overlookedYour first impression of Emmet's daughter Ellie is not a good one She's in a body cast after a fall from a tree breaks her leg I'm not sure why a broken leg would reuire a body cast but I'm going to assume Ms Ford did her research and that this is correct She is the most stubborn obnoxious child I've ever read about However she is a motherless little girl and she's cooped up in a house with nothing to do while she recovers so her misbehavior is almost understandableLouisa is totally sweet and hardworking However the diagnosis of her barrenness after a long illness is taking over her life In a way she comes across as feeling sorry for herself No one could love her because she couldn't have a baby The same is true for Emmet He lets what he feels are failures from his past dictate his future The reason for his guilt is revealed toward the end of the story and deals with the death of his parents I don't want to spoil the story for any of you but I will say when you read it you will cry I know I didThis two broken people are definitely suited for each other but it takes a lot to get them together Oh and not to worry there's another child for both Louisa and Emmet but you'll have to read the book to find out

    Firstly thanks to Netgalley for my review copy This is the second in the series of three brides for three cowboys This time the story is about Louisa who was the child that was sick and often protected because of her illnesses She gets a job as tutor for Ellie who is Emmet's 7 year old daughter who is bed ridden Louisa knows what it's like to miss school due to illness and be kept in bed and wants to help this child Louisa also has a secret shes trying to hold onto Emmet is dealing with his own demons I enjoyed how the story unfolded seeing Louisa standing up for herself and how she deals with working and Ellie I like how Linda worked through some of the problems in a sensitive way I also found it interesting learning about the depression and how some had to survive on very little variety My mother is now 92 and lived through the depression in Australia and now hates pumpkin as it was one vegetable that was in abundance and eaten most meals that as an adult she hates it A good read and I look forward to the final book in the series
