It’s 1902 and Emily
Sundberg considers herself a proper school teacher of the Twentieth Century.
But a decade ago, she behaved more like a tomboy than a young lady. So when the
neighbor’s grandson came to visit one summer, they became fast friends and Emily
even got her first kiss.
Unfortunately, Jake Edgerton told all the
boys at church. Rumors circulated, the taunts and teasing began, and Emily
caved from embarrassment and guilt. She couldn’t confront Jake about it,
either. He’d returned to Fallon, Montana and she never saw or heard from him
Over the years she’d worked
hard to prove to her classmates and the people of Manitowoc, Wisconsin that,
despite past mistakes, she really was a decent, upstanding young woman, one
befitting of a school teacher. But even with the passing of time, Emily’s never
forgotten Jake and how he nearly ruined her life…
And now he’s a U. S. deputy
marshal and he’s back in town!
