Ms. Kelso has written a wonderful story filled with love, romance, tenderness and the true meaning of how a family should keep that closeness intact throughout any obstacle. She gives her characters emotions and feelings that stir the heart and make you want to read more. The Homesteader is a page turner that is hard to put down. I look forward to reading more of her books.
