Will Rose honor her father's last wish?

Rose stood and dropped her father's hand. "You're tired, Papa." She pulled the quilt over his thin shoulders and kissed him on the cheek.

"Think about what I said." He gently squeezed her hand. "I wish you would consider giving Miles a chance."

"Miles! I wish Sean had never brought him here. He's so serious. In all the time he's been here, he's hardly ever smiled. . . . He annoys me and I wish he would go home." Still, Rose couldn't help but think of his gentleness when he cared for her father.

On his deathbed, Rose Sterling's father asks her to consider Miles Crandall as a suitor. Then Rose is sent to live with an uncle in Spring Creek, Montana, far from her carefree life with her family in Utah. Miles is
returning to his hometown of Spring Creek to set up a medical practice, so Rose is certain her being sent there is a setup. Yet Miles doesn't seem interested in her, and after Rose falls ill in Montana, he seems content to act as her physician and friend. When Rose captures the attention of Miles's younger, flamboyant brother as well as the town sheriff, Miles retreats even further from any attempt at courtship.

How can Rose honor her father's last wish if Miles doesn¹t even try to court her? Will she have the courage to put her heart on the line and fight for the one she really loves?

Lest We Forget

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
-Laurence Binyon
 
 Lest we forget.

Just Checking In

I won't be around too much for the next month. That's right, I've gone crazy and signed up for NaNoWriMo again. This year will be a little tougher for me because I took on a temporary position at the school a few weeks ago. I'll be working until Christmas with a special needs girl. She is a sweet girl, but by the time I get home, I just want to veg in front of the t.v. or stick my nose in a good book.

My project is the next book about Rose and her family. I don't have a title yet, but I do know where I want the story to go. Now I just need to stretch out the hours in the day and figure out how to work into the wee hours of the morning and still be able to stay awake at school. Should be fun.

Did I mention that Christmas is less than two months away? And my oldest daughter is trying to get her application for university filled out, but she needs my help to figure out some citizenship stuff? And the cultural arts group I am vice-president of has decided to get started on our spring play early this year? So like I said, I won't be around much this month, but come December I'll have so much to tell you. See you then. . .
