From Library Journal:Forced by lack of money to earn her own living, gently bred Anthea Bright optimistically leaves Philadelphia and heads for Haven, TX, to run the local school. Unfortunately, despite her cheery letters to her sisters, the situation is appalling physically, educationally, and socially. Then Gabriel Jackson, the most infamous "bad man" in town, bursts into her classroom, and suddenly things become a lot more interesting and a lot more perilous. A dangerously appealing hero, an intrepid, determined heroine, and a child you want to hug drive the plot of this well-written Western romance that, although charming and lighthearted on the surface, also has its darker side, addressing the issues of jealousy, prejudice, self-esteem, and social-class bias with sensitivity and skill. This is the first volume in the "Marrying Miss Bright" series. Law is an award-winning writer and author of a number of "Historical Americana" romances (e.g., The Most Wanted Bachelor); she lives in Hopkins, MN.Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.
