Summary

A West Virginia woman finds love—and her own courageous spirit: “There are authors who touch the heart, but this one grabs hold of your soul” (Romance at Heart Reviews).   Miss Emeline Wright risked everything to escape the monster who stole her innocence, her dignity, and her pride. Now, no one in her little hometown, nestled in the West Virginia hills, must ever know what she was forced to do while held captive in the city. Her only chance is to make a go of her uncle’s failing farm—but how can a woman alone in rough country survive?   With unfailing courage and an open heart, Em wins over the townspeople who’ve judged her so harshly, taking in a motley crew of misfits who show up, one by one, to lend a hand. But it’s the quiet strength and unfailing love of a single man that will show her how to trust again as they build a home to last forever . . .   This emotional historical romance set in rugged nineteenth-century America is an unforgettable saga of a strong woman from an author who offers “addictive reading” (Affaire de Coeur).   “A keeper.” —Catherine Lanigan
