Uncertain Heart by Andrea Boeshaar
Sarah McCabe is looking to gain independence from her parents and brothers. She plans to teach in Chicago; however, she spends her summer as a governess to 4 children of Captain Sinclair's in Milwaukee. Sarah finds that being independent has it's downside: unprotected, vulnerable and alone. She is a naive pastor's daughter from MO spreading her wings. However, she's a feisty one. Can she hold her own or must she return home defeated? Guess you'll just have to get the book and find out.
The Civil War is over. Sarah longs to escape the country and experience the finer things in life, so she leaves her home in Jericho Junction, Missouri, to become a governess in Milwaukee. Her rich and dashing employer, Brian Sinclair, shows an attraction to Sarah but doesn't share her beliefs.
Richard, however, does. Richard Navis is Mr. Sinclair's steward. He is kind, thoughtful, handsome...and harbors an unfortunate desire to leave his city job to be a farmer. Sarah has no interest in a rural farm life, even while her interest in Richard grows.
Does she sacrifice love to get the lifestyle she wants? Or will love be enough?
