Abby is a woman with a past full of heartache. She's lost her husband and son and struggles with her grief. She takes on a job as a housekeeper for a man who's reputation is less than stellar.

Conor is a rather volatile rancher with a past that hurts him to the core. He's got a little girl named Beth who was badly mistreated, to the point that Conor doesn't trust just anyone around her.

Abby struggles to win over Beth's love and loyalty. She struggles just as much to win Conor's trust. As a woman of faith, she believes that God will work wonders in their lives if they will only allow Him back in.

As you have probably guessed by now, Abby and Conor are somewhat attracted to each other, but neither one really wants to admit it. But you can see it. The two adults, heartbroken by life's unfair dealings, need each other (and the Lord!) to heal and really come to peaceful terms with their past. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book so much, I am in the process of reading the entire series. It is a love story with christian values. It keeps you reading with the intensity and characters carrying you through to the end and then leaving you wanting more. Great book ( )

This is a wonderful book about true forgiveness and love. Abby is a very strong character; she just can't help rubbing off on the other characters. It is a great read. Got it for my Kindle Fire FREE on amazon.com. ( )

This book to me was a truely spiritual romantic novelty. I loved the devotion to the Lord from Abby even through all the hardships put in her life path. And Connor was a worthy partner to her. Each taught the other what spirituality meant to themselves or lack of. The characters were well though out and I will enjoy any future novels from this author. ( )
