“Robin” by Julane Hiebert, book review

Robin and her sisters Wren and Lark are now orphaned. 1877 Kansas- there were few options for these young ladies. Robin travels to her Uncle John’s ranch to earn money to pay her father’s debts and determine if this is a good place to move all the girls.

But Robin encounters problems from the time she gets off the train. No one is at the station to meet her. Then a tornado runs through town and Robin is caught in it. But Ty has come to town to fetch her and saves her from harm during the storm. He takes her to the farm in the morning and helps her get settled. On the way to the farm, they find a young boy, Jacob, who is the victim of a wagon accident which killed his mother.

This is a well written and entertaining story of a young woman trying to care for her family. I enjoyed it and will look forward to reading the next books in the series.

Julane Hiebert


Julane is first of all a child of God. She is also a wife to Bob, mother to two living sons,Kip and Rob, two daughters in heaven, two wonderful daughters-in-law, Becky and Tami, and grandmother to six perfectly wonderful grands, as well as an additional three ‘other grands’. She lives with her husband in a wee cottage by a small lake nestled in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas.

Though encouraged by many to pen the story of raising two daughters with an incurable disease, she has chosen to incorporate the lessons learned into the lives of her not-too-perfect characters. Her passion is to present the promises and hope found in God’s Word in down-to-earth, everyday experiences through her stories.

Julane loves reading, decorating, junking, antiques, and chocolate! No particular order, but one would be safe to insert chocolate between all other interests.


In 1877 the Wenghold sisters inherited an overwhelming debt with their father’s passing. An uncle they’ve never met offers a solution—come help on his Kansas cattle ranch. The oldest sister, Robin, agrees to go.

Ty Morgan has suffered through a year of misery after being jilted by the town beauty a few months before their wedding. But a tornado whirls an unexpected breath of hope into his heart when he rescues Robin, his neighbor’s newly arrived niece, and a small boy who was orphaned by the storm.

Robin’s crippled leg prevents her from being a real help to Uncle John, but she seems to be exactly who Ty needs to heal his broken heart. Until his former fiancée returns and a mysterious, elusive stranger casts worry over the entire community.

A woman determined to honor her obligations, a man entangled in a long ago-made commitment, an orphaned child in need of security . . . Can God guide these three souls to peace and fulfillment together?
