Review: Winning the Schoolmarm by Lacy Williams

Winning the Schoolmarm was such an enjoyable story to read! Although this book is connected to others within a series, it can be read as a stand alone novel.

Cecelia and John were both so likable. It was sweet to see the way they began to be drawn to each other, even while John battled insecurities about his background and Cecelia feared giving her heart away to a man. I felt as if I was a part of this small, western town as I read about Cecelia taking over as the new school teacher. She certainly had her work cut out for her with a few of the children!

This book focused on new beginnings, as well as God’s grace and forgiveness. It was a wonderful novel from the first page to the last. There was also a side story woven into this one involving Cecelia’s sister, Susie. I appears that her book will follow this one and I am very excited to see how things will eventually work out for her!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Swirling rumors forced Cecilia White out of the teaching job she loved. She vowed not to get involved with a man again—no matter what. But when the term begins at a new schoolhouse in a new town, disaster strikes. No matter what she does, she can’t seem to escape the handsome, single chairman of the school board.

John Morgan has a secret. He’s not who he says he is. He’ll do anything to protect and provide for his young sister—including cozying up to the prickly schoolmarm.

Sparks fly and Cecilia must deny her heart if she hopes to keep her job. But what’s more important? Duty or love?
