A great series filled with adventure, faith and romance!
Our whole family enjoyed this series very much. It is an inspiring tale of one young lady's courage and faith as a teacher to children in the backwoods "Cutter Gap". Each episode is heart-warming and entertaining. There was just one episode in the whole series that wasn't too great as far as modesty goes ("The Road Home"). Overall, it is a great series!
