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?

Aiming for Love (Brides of Hope Mountain Book #1)
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
When Jo Nordegren discovers Dave Warden's campfire in October of 1873, it has been more than 10 years since she last saw anyone besides her sisters, Ilsa and Ursula, on the Colorado mountaintop where the women have spent their entire lives. They were raised by their grandparents after their parents' deaths, and their grandmother's dire warnings about danger and disease from the outside world have kept them in seclusion. Jo is curious and wants to help the outsiders, while her sisters, Ursula especially, are more cautious. The Wardens have been driven from their ranch down below and Jo helps Dave find pasture for their cattle. When Dave's Pa is shot and his brother, Mitch, comes down with a life-threatening fever, the sisters are conflicted about heeding their grandmother's warnings or risking their lives to help. The first in Connealy's (Unexpected Champion, 2019) Brides of Hope Mountain series is a fascinating blend of wilderness, romance, and faith set in the American West.--C. L.
