Rania Hamner and her family emigrated from Sweden fourteen years ago to work on a Texas ranch, working cattle and herding them up the Chisholm Trail. Something in her life on the trail caused her to doubt her worth, and her ability to trust a man enough to become his wife. Once the family buys a homestead in Kansas, she meets a rancher who begins to make her believe she can trust and fall in love after all.
Rancher Jacob Wilerson noticed Rania last year when she rode drag behind a herd of longhorns—right down Main Street of Ellsworth, Kansas.

When Jacob realizes Rania is in danger, he rushes to save her, whether or not she still . . .

Subtitle: Authentic Recipes from the Butter in the Well Series Butter in the Well Series, Book 3 Fades recipes- we've all come across them from time to time in our lives- either handwritten by ourselves or by another person in our family, or as old yellowed newspaper clippings stuck in a cookbook of sorts. While doing the research from the Butter in the Well series, author Linda Hubalek found old recipes and home remedies along with the family and community histories. The recipes had been handwritten in old ledger books, on scraps of paper, in margins of old cookbooks, and forever etched in the memories of the pioneer's children Hubalek interviewed. As a result, Egg Gravy is a collection of recipes the pioneer women used during their homesteading days. Most of the recipes can be traced back to the original women that homesteaded the real-­life setting of Butter in the Well. Everyone who's ever treasured a family recipe or marveled at the special touches Mother added to her cooking . . .
