Borrowed Light by Carla Kelly 2011

Something different can be good!

When Julia sees her engagement to a respected Salt Lake City bachelor in a different light there are changes in the air.  On a whim she answers an advertisement for a cook.  A profession she is feels qualified for based on her schooling.  However, once the “desperate rancher” from Wyoming sees who he has hired he is full of doubts.

Carla has woven a story of determination, desperation, and disappointments into a fascinating take from the old west mingled with the advancements of society.  There are well developed characters, lots of action bringing a fun and enjoyable read.
