Borrowed Light by Carla Kelly
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Julia graduated from a fine cooking school in Boston and finds herself home in Salt Lake, engaged and unsure about her future with her stuffy fiancé. She sees an ad in the newspaper for a cook wanted for a Wyoming ranch, and jumps at the opportunity. Mr. Otto, the rancher, isn't who she expected, but she commits to staying for a year. Her life at the ranch is a huge adjustment, but she learns a lot about herself.
It took me a little while to get into this story, but it was enjoyable. The characters were fun, and I liked learning about ranch life in Wyoming in the early 1900s.
