Staring at the notice, Cassidy Sinclair can't believe she is even considering the offer. What kind of man would be so desperate as to advertise for a wife? Then again, what other options does she have? With her parents and brother dead, she has no family left besides an orphaned seven-year-old niece. They have no home and no money, and there are no jobs available for a thirty-five-year-old spinster in a frontier Kansas town. When she agrees to meet Wendell St. John III, Cassidy has no idea of the adventure she is about to face. The needs of a guilt-stricken widower and his four motherless children, as well as the dangers of life on a prairie ranch, will challenge her faith as nothing else has. Will the pain of her new family's past haunt Cassidy's future? Or will she ultimately find the love for which she has always yearned?
