This book seem like it got some genealogical research involved in it. This is what starts out with being to solve one client genealogical brick wall. We are meet with Abigail who is set on going to stony ridge to help her father.

Those someone else as other plans. There seems to be a match maker that want to marry off young granddaughters and her son. Will it work? That is up in the air. Bishop seem to be doing moving slow but wants to make sure he doing it by god.

Her courage and her heart will be tested in ways she never expected...
Beth Thatcher has spent her entire life in the safe, comfortable world of her family, her friends, and the social outings her father's wealth provides. But Beth is about to leave it all behind to accept a teaching position in the rugged foothills of western Canada. Inspired by her aunt Elizabeth, who went west to teach school several years ago, and gently encouraged by her father, Beth resolves to put her trust in God and bravely face any challenge that comes her way.
But the conditions in Coal Valley are even worse than she'd feared. A recent mining accident has left the town grieving and at the mercy of the mining company. The children have had very little prior education, and many of the locals don't even speak English. There isn't even a proper schoolhouse. In addition, Beth's heart is torn between two young men--both Mounties, one a lifelong friend and the other a kind, quiet man who comes to her aid more than once.
Despite the many challenges, Beth is determined to make a difference in the rustic frontier town. But when her sister visits from the East, reminding her of all the luxuries she's had to give up, will Beth decide to return to her privileged life as soon as the school year is over?

Are you a fan of the When Calls The Heat series on Hallmark. Did you know what it based off of the books Jeannette Oke wrote? It may not be exactly the same but it based off it and I really do enjoy it.

I had not read her books I wanted to. I was able to do so with Where the Courage Calls. It about woman named Beth Thatcher. Her goal to being a teacher in a frontier town. Will she get her wish or will she be turned out.

She thrown into a mining community to teach the children. Will she make it will she not. The town see friendly and she try and help the town after a disaster. The book is really good. I am sorry it been a while since I read the book. I will want to read more of the author's book when I can get a chance.

Will she make friends in her new mining community? Will she find love? Beth seem to be tested and about her skills. Read to see how it ends up.

Grimms' Fairy Tales

Book Title: Grimms' Fairy Tales
Author: Jacob & Wilhelm GRIMM
Genres: Children's Fiction, Myths, Legends & Fairy Tales
Disclaimer: I downloaded a free copy from +LibriVox
Description:
A classic collection of oral German folklore, brought together for posterity by the scholarly brothers Grimm in the 1800s, this epitome of fairy tales includes many of the world’s best known stories. In these dark foreboding woods, you will find: Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Lily and the Lion (better known as Beauty and the Beast), and Snow White and Rose Red, among other timeless works. These tales were later heavily revised and sanitised, but here are presented closer to their grim and beloved originals. (Summary by Marlo Dianne)


The audio book that I downloaded from Libox is a free download. It got a 62 Chapters or you can call them stories by the Grimm Brothers. It fairy tales and what the originals stories ending really are.

Did you always think that the Disney version was the real one and did not know that they did not really end up Happy ever after. Well I did until I read a book that was called Grimm Woods by D. Melhoff.

It made go looking for the original stories of my favorite fairy tales. Grimm Woods did not tell all the fairy tales ending it was story of itself but it did act out some of the fairy tales. It also is an adult or new adult book. Please be caution to that fact.

This one is not as graphic in the audio book. This is not to bad. It help understand some of the fairy tales. The ending are different then though of Disney's. I know why that is, it is because they remade them to fit better for young children.

You will get some of your classic fairy tales in this audio book. It enjoyed it. Though I say it will take some time to listen to. It a 10 hours and 32 mins long audio book. I would suggest listening this is pieces or couple of hours a day.
