A WOMAN WHOSE FAMILY REJECTED HER
Felicity Adamson was raised in an orphanage because her aunt refused to take her in after her mother died of cholera. Making ends meet by caring for spoiled children whose parents refuse to discipline them leaves Felicity frazzled and exhausted. She’d give anything to quit her job as a governess.
She dreams of a quiet, peaceful place where she can start a family of her own.
A MAN WHO CAN’T AFFORD TO MOURN
Texas horse wrangler Harrison Baines knows what it’s like to long for a family. As a child, his father abandoned his family, leaving Harrison’s mother to raise two children on her own. Turned bitter by this betrayal, Harrison’s mother takes her anger out on Harrison.
Driven by his mother’s criticism to become the best horse wrangler in Texas, Harrison wants to give his children the loving home he never had.
A TRAGEDY THAT CAN’T BE UNDONE
When a tornado kills most of Harrison’s kin, he finds himself the only guardian of his brother’s young children, Esther and Daniel. The children are devastated by the loss of their parents and grandmother—and Harrison is at his wit’s end.
Thank goodness that his bride-to-be is an experienced governess!
Felicity arrives in East Texas, only to discover that she’s hours away from becoming a stepmother to two grieving children and a husband struggling to cope with staggering loss.
Can Felicity find a way to heal her new family’s wounded souls and teach Harrison to love again?
