Call of the Prairie by Vickie McDonough

Sophie Davenport longs for a life of independence instead of being smothered by her parents' constant concern for her delicate health. After years of dealing with asthma, they aren't exactly willing to let her out of their domain. When extenuating circumstances allow her a brief respite to travel to Kansas and care of her ill aunt, Sophie jumps at the opportunity for a change in her situation.

 Josh Harper isn't impressed when he meets the young woman who came to assist her aunt and also watch his niece and nephew after school each day. He doubts her privileged background prepared her to deal with the three additional youngsters that live with her aunt and also maintain a home too. In fact, he isn't sure he should entrust his loved ones into her care at all. Sparks fly when the two battle wits over her abilities.

Vickie McDonough has another potential award-winning book on her hands with Call of the Prairie. She weaves a delightful tale of life on the Kansas prairie. With her lively dialogue and gift for description, the reader is easily drawn into the story of young Sophie and Josh. It won't disappoint.
