My version of the old story.
Emma finds a cozy coffee shop on her morning walks. Her acquaintance with the owner, a handsome young man named Ethan, brightens her solitary life.
Set in 1884, and based on the characters of author Susan K. Marlow, this is a fan fiction story I wrote. It is also posted on Mrs. Marlow’s blog at https://ranchfanfiction.blogspot.com/p/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-ja-x.html.
On her brother Jem’s recommendation, thirty year old Ellianna Coulter accepts the position of school teacher in Fresno, California, but a prickly landlady and mischievous children make things a little complicated. Thankfully, an old friend, Chad Carter, renews his acquaintance and invites her out to the Circle C Ranch to meet his family…but what actually happened at Ellie’s last school?
