Prairie Storm (by Catherine Palmer)

This is the third and last in Catherine Palmer's series of books set in an American prairie town, when it was just started. It stands on its own - the only connection between the books is the location, and one or two characters who recur in minor roles.

In 'Prairie Storm', the early part is about Elijah, an inspired but uneducated preacher, who has no idea what to do with a foundling baby he has been given.

Lily, meanwhile, is very bitter after the death of her baby. She meets Elijah, and agrees to look after baby Sam, but sparks fly as they clash in several ways.

A lot happens before the inevitable happy ending. Pleasant light reading.
