So when the town decides to hire a blacksmith she makes sure she's there on her father's behalf to approve of the man. What she see's surprises her, this isn't a man, more like a giant!! Muscular and tall! Unable to stop herself Eden finds herself drawn to this man that she knows so little about! At first he seems uneducated, but his language points in another direction.

The chaplin from the prision sends him with references to a minister friend of his who sets him up with a job as the town blacksmith. But also warns him that while he doesn't need to share his past with everyone, he may not want to let the people find out any other way but through him. Levi also finds himself drawn to the town librarian, makes a point of going to the library every day to read and see the librarian. He finds himself falling in love with her, but is unsure how she will react when she finds out his past!
For the most part I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it a little predictable in parts as well as the behavior of the lead female a little silly at times. Overall it is a great book and a good read! I do recommend it!
