Harmon Ely wants to start a town. He advertises for married couples to move to his trading post in Texas & he will have a house built for each couple and give them 40 acres if they will stay for two years to help get the town started. That town becomes Harmony.

We follow the original three couples as they make their way towards the new town that will become Harmony.

The McAllens, newly married, young lovers who found love in each other's' arms, not having known the familial love from their parents, where its supposed to begin.

The Matheson's, older, more mature but have struggled for years to become the family that they were meant to be, with him as a soldier and her with her large, overbearing family.

The Truman's, a couple with a baby, who came together more out of need, who are slowly becoming dependent upon each other, possibly without wanting to.

This book is a standalone, sweet historical, western fiction. My favorite genre. We are all searching for a place called Harmony to go where we are treasured and not forgotten. ( )

"A Place Called Harmony" by Jodi Thomas

Book Description...

"New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas has captivated America with her novels set in the
small town of Harmony, Texas. Now she tells the story of the three hard-luck men who first settled the town, a place where last chances and long-awaited dreams collide…
Desperate to escape his overbearing father, Patrick McAllen disappears with his bride, heading north to build a new town—discovering strength, honor and true love along the way.
After drinking away the grief from his family’s death, Clint Truman avoids jail by taking a job in North Texas and settling down with a woman he vows to protect but never love—until her quiet compassion slowly breaks his hardened heart wide open…
All Gillian Matheson has ever known is Army life, leaving his true love to be a part-time spouse. But when a wounded Gillian returns home to find her desperately fighting to save their marriage, he’s determined to become the husband she deserves.
Amidst storms, outlaws, and unwelcome relatives, the three couples band together to build a town—and form a bond that breathes life into the place that will forever be called Harmony."

What I liked about the novel....
This was a well written fabulous American pioneer story of the history of Harmony, Texas told by this author. This was definitely a story that is brought to life showing all the emotions... loving, sad, happy and even awed from some of all of it. You will be presented a story that makes it seem as if you are right there in the midst of it all through the pain and heart ache that many of these characters have gone through. I found this novel very interesting and how this author was able to give us the 'Harmony' series was simply amazing giving us the characters backgrounds from many of her previous series. From Harmon Ely, to Clint Truman, to Patrick McAllen and then on to Captain Gillian Matteson you will get a complete romantic adventure story that will keep you turning the pages until the end.

What I especially liked about "A Place Called Harmony"...

If you are looking for a good western historical romance you have come to the right place because "A Place Called Harmony" will give it to you....a simply good read By the time you get to the end of this story there will be an excerpt from the next Harmony series: 'One True Heart' that is scheduled to come out April, 2015 and I am sure the readers will be looking for this good read.
