Martin and Marie (Paperback)
After Marie Farrier's rival plays the cruelest classroom prank imaginable on her, he graduates out of the one-room schoolhouse-and into being her nemesis. Her opinion of him is far from secret, but it seems like he pops up at every turn, eager to be scorned again. Marie's sister intends to break her out of the rivalry once and for all, but it's easier said than done. It's hard enough to avoid someone around the small town of Hillsboro forever, and when their Pa suggests hiring Marie's nemesis at the very railroad depot where he works, it may prove impossible. If Marie can't learn to forgive and move on, she'll bear a grudge against Martin forever, but what could be worse than her nemesis proclaiming he loves her?
