"Well written and with an interesting plot, this innocent, uplifting story will be appreciated by fans of historical Christian romance." - The Library Journal
a heart guarded, a secret revealed, a love discovered
When the beautiful and coddled Abigail Silver is sent from her parents’ lush Texas ranch to the untamed wilds of Tall Pine, Colorado, her mother is hoping that Abigail will learn independence and self-reliance.
What Abigail finds among the Colorado mountain people is a community built on hard work, faith, and family––she also finds the handsome Pastor Will who, much to her dismay, seems only to have eyes for Esther, the community’s midwife hiding from a dark past.
Fiercely protective of her young son Michael, Esther’s determined not to let anyone close enough to hurt them––even if that means sacrificing true love. But when the Texas Ranger Joseph Silver, Abigail’s brother, shows up, Esther’s past is unearthed and her heart is exposed.
Abigail and Joseph’s brash Texas manners rattle the people of Tall Pine, but ultimately the brother and sister may be an answer to prayer the townspeople didn’t know they needed.
