Summary

A historical romance set in 1873.  Darcie Robbins fled St. Louis to protect her two children from their bad father. Now divorced, she’s temporarily working on the Bar E Ranch in central Kansas. She needs a permanent job—or a trustworthy husband—to help provide for her family. 
Reuben Shepard went home to his family in New York after the Civil War, to find his wife had declared him dead—so she could wed another. In shock, Reuben didn’t contest her claim and wandered south, spending years as a cattle drover on western trails until settling down to work on the Bar E Ranch. 
Spending time with Darcie’s toddler, Tate, makes Reuben miss his own son, Gabe. Reuben travels to New York, hoping to visit his son, and ends up bringing Gabe back to the Kansas because the boy’s step-father had just died. 
When Reuben proposes marriage to Darcie for their children’s sake, the couple falls in love as they learn to trust and support each other while planning for their future. But their wedding is stalled when Reuben’s former wife arrives, stating she and Reuben are still married.  
What’s the truth and what’s best for the children is their concern now instead of a wedding date. How can they clear the past so they can have a future together?

    A few excerpts: 'Crack' the Head's hand landed. The Head released my wrists and helped me stand upright. "Bend over Wright, and place your hands on the seat of the chair." "Come along girl, I haven't got all day," said the Head impatiently clicking his fingers to emphasise his words. Clumsily I complied, and handed my knickers over with a shaking hand. Immediately the Head busied himself by laying out all the punishment implements, a formidable display. 'Crack! Then the policeman's hand cracked down time after time, until the girl's backside was a bright scarlet. Time and time again, the cane landed, leaving criss-cross weals, until there wasn't a space left unmarked. The girl groaned aloud, and the policeman laughed. Waiting outside the Head's study, Called in at 09.10. Christ I thought the last Head was bad enough but this one is ten times worse. I was pulled straight over the Head's knees, skirt up knickers down for a spanking I shall remember for some time to come.

    Sixteen boys and one schoolmaster on tour as a choir come across an idyllic village stuck in some kind of 1930s time-warp, where all the men seem to be women dressed as men, who seem to be very much in charge of those actually dressed as women, who actually appear to be men! This being a Glynis Dunnitt story, as luck would have it the village school is in dire need of a music mistress and sixteen more girls, and never mind their current gender, (or indeed their wishes), the travelling choir soon fill that need!

    For far too long, doctors thought hormone replacement therapy was the answer to menopausal symptoms from hot flashes to sleepless nights to stubborn belly fat. But while it does help, HRT can be risky--and may raise women's chances for breast cancer, heart attack, and stroke. Luckily, there's a growing stack of research that natural remedies can be just as effective.
     
    In The Natural Menopause Solution, the editors of Prevention and integrative medicine specialist Melinda Ring, MD, distill that research into the easy-to-follow 30-Day Slim-Down, Cool-Down Diet, which can help women lose 21 percent more body weight. Plus it's proven to help reduce the number and intensity of hot flashes by 50 percent. In addition to this easy eating and exercise program, there are hundreds of drug-free solutions for sleep problems, memory lapses, mood swings, lack of energy, low libido, and more--and strategies to protect against heart disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, and cancer.
