Montana Teacher: Back in Indiana
Tal Evans is a rancher whose wife died giving birth to twin girls, who run free and undisciplined. Ignored by their father, who had a pity party and tried to drown his sorrows in a bottle, the girls run wild, driving his mother to distraction. The twins wind up in Sarah’s first grade class after they continued their shenanigans in school until they caused a young teacher to resign rather than have them in her class.
The principal prevailed on Sarah to take them into her class, where they get their first taste of stern discipline. Tal took offense at Sarah’s strict manner with his daughters and confronted her with it. He told her she had no idea what it was like to have two small children to raise with only one parent. She threw his words back in his face with her own story, and told him his children need more attention from him since they have no mother.
They overcame their differences eventually and became more than friends.
Her father died unexpectedly and she went back home to Indiana to be with her mother, now alone.
This is a poignant story of four lives confronted with tragedy in the beginning, and then hit with still another that threatens the life of Tal. Read how they face and try to master the tribulations that befall them.
