This is the third book in the Coming to America series. This tells the story of Mary Malone, an Irish immigrant who arrives in New York, pregnant, and hoping to be united with the baby's father. He has died and she works as a domestic to provide for her young son. When her employer attacks her and she defends herself, she thinks she has killed him, and she flees to Idaho and becomes a bookkeeper in a saloon. She thought she was running from the law, and she ran right into the arms of the Sherriff, Carson Barclay.
She fights against her growing feelings for him because she knows if her secret comes out, it will ruin his reputation, land her in jail, and her son in an orphanage.
I found Mary to be a very likeable character, with her Irish sayings, her stubbornness and temper. Carson eventually wears her down. Her former employer tracks her down and threatens her. There are a few sub-plots and lessons about forgiveness and judging others.
