Ruth Ann Nordin has written seventy romances, ranging from Regencies to historical westerns to contemporaries. She plays with other genres from time to time, but her first love is romance. She has been happily married for eighteen years to a sweet and funny guy, and they have four sons, who are all taller than Ruth now that they're 12, 13, 14, and 16. The good thing is she doesn't need a ladder, and there's always someone to take care of a mouse that squeezes its way into her Montana home. She considers herself very lucky to have led such a charmed life. Being able to play with characters and create stories is just icing on the cake. Hopefully, she'll get to keep doing this many years to come.

I was honestly hoping for a bit more conflict from Dave or even between him an Neal, but I was glad that they worked it out quickly enough either way. I loved this book and connected with the characters just like I have in every one or Ruth Ann's books! Loved this book just like every other!

This is such a romantic story. I look like an idiot while reading it, because I smile in every scenes that happened. Miss Ruth is my favorite author no matter what! :D

Isaac was very young and really wanted to please his father. He is finally able to do as his heart leads though. Great book. Rated R though.

Isaac's Decision by Ruth Ann Nordin
Nebraska Series Book 9
Two previous books in this series; Eye of the Beholder & His Redeeming Bride lead up to this book. I read them a second time before reading Isaac's Decision and I'm glad I did as the stories flow together so well. This story is about nine years after His Redeeming Bride.
Isaac Larson is the son of Dave and Mary. At age fourteen Dave told Isaac not to talk to “that Craftsman girl” and being the obedient son he is, he obeyed. His eyes did not, everyday in school he still would look at her and admire her. At seventeen, Dave starts encouraging Isaac to marry and Dave already has the bride in mind. Eva Connealy, the school teacher. Isaac wants the only girl he has been forbidden to have, Emily Craftsman.
Emily lives in the shadow of her birth mother, Cassie. She has her beauty but that is all. As a young girl she made the choice not to be like her mother. And yet people seem to judge her by her parents past. She has dreamed of having Isaac as her own for years but when she finds out that he banned from her she almost gives up. Good thing the word quit is not in her vocabulary!
I love this series. It is full of characters with flaws. Neil Craftsman's story is one of redemption but being the town knew of his sins, some people won't let it die even now that he is a new man. Especially Dave Larson. I enjoyed watching the story and characters unfold in this book. Seeing the way they think helps you understand motives, even if they are not right. When you get to know the younger siblings, it is exciting to know that maybe their stories will come about one day as well. In fact, one of the younger sons is in the South Dakota Series, Bride of Second Chances. It's just a small part but Dave and a younger son are in the General Store. I love how Ruth lets her characters pop in other stories now and then.
