My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Novel written by Karen Witemeyer "No Other Will Do."
This is the story of Emma and Malachi, they met when they were young, he was a street urchin looking for warmth in the barn where Emma lived with her aunts, at first sight she wanted to help this little boy that had so much courage. He stayed with the aunts for a couple of years and became family.

The colony had an enemy wanting to oust them from their land and homes and she needed someone she could trust to help,even if it was a man.
The women in the colony did not have much use for men in general but accepted Mal to help knowing he and Emma had a past. You will enjoy reading as the danger intensifies and the women learn to trust this man to help them.
