    I really didn't like this book. I didn't find it plausible (unlike the first two), and really at the end of the day I found it offensive. Emma's worth is more than making biscuits and keeping house (view spoiler)[ which she does instantly when she returns.She could very​ easily use her influence and position in society to do good, helping many in need. But no, she fits into Peter's expectations of a proper woman and takes care of the cooking, cleaning and child rearing. I see. (hide spoiler)]

    This was my favorite book cover in the series, and my least favorite book in the series. As always, it was well written and the story flowed nicely, but it was an extremely frustrating book to read.The "hero" of the story was completely unlikable, and not a hero at all in my view. He treated the main character in a very disrespectful manner, and then they ended up together. Furthermore, after treating her a horrible way, the author would write the main character to pardon the way he treated her [...]

    The best thing about this book was the main character, Emma. Her positivity was the thing that pulled you through the story. Other than her, the boy Robbie and Colley everyone else was rather disagreeable. Her nearest and dearest relatives pushed her into an engagement. The robbers were ridiculous. The romantic interest is a ball of negative grumpiness. He redeems himself somewhat, but never completely. The plot was contrived and riddled with cliches. I'm sorry to say it, but I'm just happy that [...]

    Christian fiction, 1883. Can be read as a stand-alone. Emma is a socialite, not well liked by the other young ladies and their mothers. She sets off on a return trip home to Portland and inadvertently gets stranded and taken captive by not-too-bright outlaws. Widowed Peter is searching for the outlaws who rustled his sheep, and subsequently has to take them and Emma back to his summer camp. Emma doesn't know a thing about cooking or housekeeping, but she is given those tasks as well as watching [...]

    It was a real struggle for me to finish this book. I had to force myself to read it to the end. The whole plot and all the situations the characters got into seemed kind of ridiculous.I didn’t really like any of the characters except Robby and Colley. The worst was Peter. He annoyed me and I never could come to care about him. His treatment of Emma was deplorable. I never understood their attraction to each other in the end. Their “romance” and sudden feelings for the other made absolutely [...]

    All Emma Cromwell hoped for when she set out on her journey to Portland, Oregon was to learn to rely on herself and not the men in her life. After spending time in the social circles in Denver and finding little in the way of friendships with women and nothing but the attention of suitable gentlemen, Emma wanted to see if she could handle life without someone making all the decisions for her. So when her father agreed to send her by coach along with the pastor and his wife, he felt he had done t [...]

    Ginny Aiken in her new book, “She Shall Be Praised” Book Three in the A Women of Hope series published by FaithWords brings us into the life of Emma Crowell.From the back cover: She Shall Be Praised.When socialite Emma Crowell stops the carriage on the way to Portland to ‘exercise’ her new puppy, the last thing she expects is to be left behind in decidedly unsuitable attire, let alone kidnapped. Fortunately, she is soon found by local rancher Peter Lowery. Unfortunately, he has no intent [...]

    Infuriating book! This was probably the most sexist romance I've read in a long time. The heroine Emma is the pretty daughter of a wealthy merchant and her stagecoach gets held up in the middle of nowhere, so a sheep rancher rescues her and takes her back to his place. He is "too busy" to take her back to town so she can go home, so he says she can stay for the next few months and help out, along with his ranch manager, young son, and other workers. So the "hero" of the book is unlikable and uns [...]

    Look at this cover. Amazing! This is one of my all time favorite book covers, I wanted to jump into the picture. Now for the story line. This book is unique in a few ways. The main character Emma has been raised as a wealthy young lady. When she heads out west in a carriage things do not go as planned. Traveling with a puppy in a carriage is one thing but getting lost in the woods because of this puppy causes some problems. This part of the story was a bit unrealistic to me as she is kidnapped b [...]

    Emma's existence so far has been pampered, protected and very shallow. She hardly has concerns past what to wear to the next party and other selfish interests. Her bubble of happy ignorant bliss is popped very suddenly when she is left behind in the middle of nowhere and is taken hostage by two bumbling crooks. The next few months of her life are like nothing she's ever had to go through. However, near the end of the book Emma's character comes to the realization that without all of the discomfo [...]

    This book started out a little slow. The main character, Emma, was very shallow. What I would describe as a Southern Belle in Colorado. As she travels to Portland via stagecoach, chaperoned by an elderly couple (him a Reverend). She had just gotten engaged because it was what her dad, uncle & aunt wanted. While crossing the Rockies, the stage is held up. In the short run, she is left behind. After being rescued by a widower sheep rancher, that is when her life becomes SO very different. She [...]

    I'm always drawn to anything in relation to the Proverbs 31 woman. I saw that this story was somewhat based on her, so it went on my reading list.Honestly, though, the story just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Emma starts out clueless on how to run a home. I still liked her, though. It was a sweet, innocent kind of clueless. I'm not a feminist at all! (If you are, I really don't think you'll like it at all.)Still, though, Peter's attitude in pushing Emma to be a homemaker just made me mad. I d [...]

    Witty, humorous, and at the same time very thoughtfully written; I simply wished that the story could have been twice as long. Emma and Peter were characters that any reader would want to know better; their opposing styles very evident and yet perfectly matched. I absolutely expect that this talented author's books will only get better. A very enjoyable read.

    I received this book through first-reads.A cute story. I liked it but it did need to be longer and to have more progression of the actual romance. Though it is obvious the 2 characters would fall in, which I did like to see happen, it just seemed rushed and without enough situations to see this love developing. Over all it is an enjoyable story with some good faith lessons.

    I thought it carried on too long on boring parts of the book and then over the course of one page the whole dynamic of the story changed. I didn't feel it led on at all that Peter and Emma's feelings were as strong as they were and then the next page says how she's so miserable, misses him so much, loves him, and can't wait to see him.

    Probably 3 1/2 stars. I liked it, but the logic that the main male character was hard for me to get past and made me very frustrated. The situation was needed to progress the storyline, but I would have liked it done differently. I also think that the socialite fell into domestic capability far easier then one would have in reality. I liked the story and like the authors style.

    Before I was half way through the book I figured out how the end of the book was going to end. I was disappointed in the book because of that. But there was a turn I was surprised with. There were some good lessons in the book. This was not a deep book.

    Good Christian bookThis is a wonderful story of redemption, God's grace and His loving care. The characters were easy to love and care about in this historical novel. I want to thank the author for such a wonderful story and for no sexual content. I recommend this book.

    Linda Trionfo
    I am happy I have found another author I want to follow, great story, good book, feelings seemed about right when the romance blossomed, not out of no where like a lot of these kinds of books. I enjoyed the Characters and the little bits of mystery that were thrown. Well one!

    An enjoyable read. The "hero" is a bit unyielding and not easy to like which I guess makes for good tension in the story. Emma is a spoiled and wealthy young woman who turns out to be very strong.

    Book 3 of 3*Great! Live Ginny Aiken!

    Jennifer Covington
    Good book. Enjoyable. This is part of the women of hope novel. The first one I read, For such a time as this, was better I believe, but this was good too.

    bad - I would not read againI didn't feel like the characters connected at all. I didn't like this story at all.
