Miss Georgie Gail is a switchboard operator in rural Texas. She is proud of her independence in a world run by men. So when the telephone company sends in a man to check on Miss Gail and her work, she is very put out. However, Luke Palmer, the man sent by the telephone company is not what he seems. He is a Texas Ranger whose goal is to infiltrate and capture a group of train robbers that have eluded him several times previously. Palmer’s new task is to repair telephones while trying to seek out the train robbers, which does not make the task very easy. Despite that, things change for Palmer when he realizes his job has put Georgie in danger.
I enjoyed reading this book and learning more about the life and opportunities of women over 100 years ago. While I won’t count it as one of the top books that I have read this year, it was a good book and I do recommend reading it.
I received this book free from Bethany House for the purpose of this review.
