Can Tabitha find safety before her deceased husband's family force her into a marriage she doesn't want and cause certain death for her and her daughter?
Tabitha Ryan suspects her husband's death in a carriage accident was no accident, but a cold-blooded murder of greed. Is it possible his step-mother is responsible? She doesn't want to take chances, especially since her five-year-old daughter is also at risk. A series of events takes her to a small town in central Kansas far from her St. Louis, Missouri, home where she hopes to find a safe haven. What she doesn't expect to find is a sense of security with a man who doesn't seem to trust her. More than anything, she'd like to turn her troubles over to him and rest in his strength and protection.
Dan Vincent owns the feed store in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas, and also is on the school board. When their teacher marries, he has to find another to take her place before school starts in the fall. Normally, that wouldn't be hard to do, but already one candidate has decided she'd rather get married than take the job and only his cousin Gloriana Parker from St. Louis seems interested. She isn't his first choice, but the children need a teacher. Then Mrs. Gloriana Parker comes and occupies the house on his property, but she isn't his cousin.
