About the book:
Lula never wanted to be just a wife.
At the Spearfish Normal School, Lula Arnsby is ready to begin a whole new chapter of her life. When a bully from her past strides into her class as the new teacher’s assistant, she wants nothing to do with the handsome prankster but his aim isn’t to torment her anymore.
Barton Oleson wants to be noticed by the pixie-haired beauty, Lula. He’s spent the last two years making sure she thinks of him every single day, but he’s running out of time to get her to notice him. Only one school term until she will be a teacher and out of his reach.
Is it enough time to make up for two years of hurt and can Lula forgive all that he’s done?
I have enjoyed every book I’ve read (and or listened to) by Kari Trumbo! Her stories pull me in and keep my attention right from the very beginning. Not only can I easily picture what’s happening as if I were watching it on the screen, but I feel what the characters are feeling. Reading this book was a fully immersive experience!
For this story, I enjoyed listening to the audiobook on my daily commute to and from work, or at least that is how it started. But honestly, I was too wrapped up in the story to stop listening, so I put on my headphones and enjoyed listening while catching up with my household chores. Its the first time I can honestly say that the chores got done too quickly!
While I have read other books from Kari Trumbo, this is the first book in the Seven Brides of South Dakota series that I have read. I quickly added the others to my TBR in hopes of reading them soon! I do not know if all of the books can be stand-alone, but if you jump in with this one, you will be just fine!
