For love of a little girl, will two widowed hearts give hope a second chance?
Preacher Bern Stidham is a peacemaker—when he’s not carrying one on his hip. He's heart-sore for a partner, a wife, but wearing a badge, carrying a Bible, and raising his daughter Gracie keeps him too busy to hunt one down. Gracie knows her papa needs a helper. She wants a mama for herself as well, so she writes to a trusted friend for a mail-order bride. Trouble is, she doesn't let Bern know about the letter until it's too late.
Recently widowed dressmaker Etta Collier is a half-step ahead of the banker who carries a lustful eye for her as well as the note on her home. When her pastor encourages her to answer an unusual letter from a little girl, hope opens an unexpected door. Running from one man’s lecherous pursuit into the home of another she knows nothing about, Etta may have to risk everything to ease a little girl’s loneliness and find a second chance at love.
