Millie knows her sisters husband is abusive, and when her sister asks her to take her two year old with her, she doesn't hesitate. So when Millie arrives in Kansas to meet Sam she finds out from the local sheriff that her intended died in an accident. Sheriff Adam Wilerson takes her on as a housekeeper when she has no where for her and her little nephew Tate to go.

See a Problem?

And the writing was shallow. The characters were not explored very deeply, and there were too many of them for the attention given to each.

Sometimes a feel good read is just what I needed. Millie Marries a Marshal reaffirms life can improve.

Domestic Violence is an awful situation. Millie helped her abuse sister and nephew. The other women banded together to protect and provide support for the abused Mother, child and Millie when the abusive man hunted them. The women worked as a shield. In the real world abuse victims require the same support systems. May the real women find a safe haven like in this story.
