I LOVED this book. It’s about a girl who grew up on a mountain and a man who is a cattle rancher. It is a great romance and is SUPER funny!!!! (The girl basically knows nothing about the outside world and is oblivious to everything, and the guy has to try to teach her about life.)

This is a great book for girls but it is for older girls, there are a few mentions of a man and woman be left alone and wedding nights. Nothing gets described but it is mentioned.

Over all, this is a great book for older girls and is very Christian-friendly! I HIGHLY suggest it to anyone who likes funny romance. Have a great day! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • Very funny!
  • A great book for teens girls!
  • Historical

  • Some ‘adult’ things mentioned.

Josephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world–a world she’s been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls’ secret home, her older sister especially is frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.

David’s parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. David’s father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?
