Today we're celebrating the 9th book in this year's Prairie Roses Collection, Elsie, by Author KC Hart.
Dr. Randolph Foster is starting over. After being falsely accused of causing the death of a wealthy man’s child, he loses his medical practice, his reputation, and his fiancé, all in one swoop. Nothing is left for him in Missouri, and when the lucrative offer to accompany two women across the plains to California on a wagon train is made to him, he sees it as an opportunity to begin again.
When the two headstrong travelers are thrown together, each with their plans firmly made, will they bend to a different plan that God has set into motion?
You can find Elsie exclusively on Kindle Unlimited
“I promise I will stay with you until you can handle the team easily. It is not as hard as you think. The oxen have been trained for years to follow commands and pull the wagons. You are really just there for moral support.” He tossed the last few drops of coffee on the edge of the fire. “I wouldn’t let you do anything that would endanger your life. You are paying me to get you safely to your destination. I wouldn’t be very smart to give you a job that puts you in harm’s way.”
The tender spot in Elsie’s heart turned hard as she listened to the last couple of sentences from the man’s mouth. What was she thinking, anyway? She could care less if the man was concerned about her or not. She was learning to be independent. That was her plan. She would never achieve what she wanted to achieve until she was able to completely stand on her own two feet.
KC lives in Mississippi with her husband of thirty-plus years. She loves to write, read, play piano and guitar, and play with her grandkids.
KC's love of storytelling was nurtured by her large family growing up. She spent a lot of afternoons sitting on the front porch singing while her dad played the guitar. She did a lot of listening and laughing at the tall tales shared by her mother, brothers, or any neighbor who happened to stop by. She is number six of seven kids and admits her older brothers spoiled her rotten.
KC has always had a huge imagination and a love of humor. In her fifties, she finally developed the courage to put these traits in print and fling them to the world.
KC is the author of The Katy Cross Cozy Mystery Series. All the books are clean who-done-its with a Christian worldview and southern, small-town charm.
