New Scrapbook Pages
This corner of the page has a green 'crackle' background. It also has a picture of a wooden chess set (because chess will be an initial common ground for Gwen and Matt,) and a family crest. (Actually, this is my own family crest.
EMELINE GERHARD has long dreamed of living on a ranch and learning to ride horses, herd cattle, and cook over a campfire. She’s thrilled to be heading to Sagebrush. Imagine her surprise when her cowboy turns out to have a ranch all right. A sheep ranch. With gentle persistence, JOSEPH BARRETT shows Emeline the reality of life in the west, and the special bond between a shepherd and his sheep. When area cattlemen threaten the flock, Emeline and Joseph band together—with the help of her sisters and their husbands—to save their ranch.
For this one, there is a lamb, a sheepdog, and a rather modest sod cabin. I have a feeling I'm going to really have fun with this story because her expectations and her reality are so very far apart.
