Levi, the new blacksmith in town, is just that, new. No one knows anything about him, except Parson Cranford. Levi’s past is safe with the Parson. Levi came to town highly recommended by a friend of David Cranford. The Parson’s recommendation to Mr. Spencer, the town’s founder, along with the fact that spring was around the corner and they had been without a blacksmith for four long months, was in Levi’s favor in obtaining the job in Spencer.
Eden Spencer, the beautiful town founder’s daughter, catches Levi’s eye. Then when he finds out there is a library in town, which Miss Spencer happens to run, he longs for Jules Verne’s book “Around the World in Eighty Days.” Miss Spencer didn’t know how to react to his request when he came into the library. The new blacksmith horded his words, she didn’t even know if he could read. What did he really want? Eden Spencer was suspicious of all men, after being jilted by her betrothed just days before their wedding day. How could she trust her inner most feelings when it came to men, after all she had thought she had been in love and he in love with her. But now, she knew it was best to trust no man. To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer, is a fun read with a few unexpected turns.
