Brooke Baker's life changed when her parents and sister were killed in a buggy accident. Sent to live with her Uncle Jackson she experiences daily abuse. Then there is Hank who is handsome but has also been abusive to her. Her uncle decides to send her west as a mail-order-bride and gain some money from her sale. She is to marry Jason Jordan. Jason's cousin Sky hears about his upcoming marriage and decides to step in because no woman should be stuck with the likes of Jason. So Sky meets her at the stage carrying a single yellow daisy and marries her that very day. Brooke thinks all men are alike. Unpredictable and abusive and you always need to be on your toes. Sky notices that his new wife is jumpy around him and realizes that he needs to take things slow. Will Sky show Brooke that he's a man of his word? One that she can trust? Will Brooke realize that all men aren't alike and learn to trust her husband but more importantly trust her Heavenly Father?
I really enjoy this story. It's the first book in a series. The characters and situations felt very real. In fact, some of the storyline actually came from an historical event. And let me tell you ladies, Skylar Jordan was a hero any woman could love. The kindness and love he showed to Brooke will melt your heart. I am looking forward to the next installment of "The Shepherd's Heart series. It will be Jason's story.
