Summary

The war is over, and the boys are coming home.  It's time for women everywhere to leave the factories and return to their rightful places…in the kitchen.   
Women did their duty and filled many traditionally male jobs while their men were fighting for their country, but now, the men are back and ready to take over.  But what if your man didn't return?  And what if you found you enjoyed the freedom your job gave you? 
Neither Marion Whiting nor Barbara Jenkins loved their jobs in the mill; however, they did the best job they could for their government, and after being widowed by the war, those jobs had become a necessity.   
The two women fell in love and moved in together to save on expenses, but they soon discovered life is very different from when they were married to men.  After giving up their individual homes in order to buy a place together, they learn that no bank will give them a loan without a responsible male's signature.  Since Marion and Barbara no longer have men to 'take care' of them, they decide they will take care of themselves and each other. 
Dreams are meant to be pursued, so Marion and Barbara buy an island using the last of their combined money.  They want to create a vacation getaway where they can raise their shared family, but they have no idea what it will take to make their dreams on this island a reality.   
Will they have to give up their dreams to save their relationship?  Will the freedoms they enjoy be thwarted by outside influences?  Come along as two women in post-war Maine embark on their dream.  "What could possibly go wrong?" you ask…

    Lord Strickland never permitted himself to fantasize about the sultry, off-limits lady, but then he never expected to find Ela in a place so wicked, looking for what he’s more than too happy to give. She may not be to the ton’s taste, but she suits him perfectly. First, however, he must convince her to trust in this dangerous desire—and in the promise of forever unleashed by one wild, scandalous night.

    When she hears that the small town of Heritage, Michigan, is looking for a new librarian, Libby Kingsley jumps at the opportunity. Little did she know the library is barely more than a storage closet stuffed with dusty, outdated books. What the community really needs is a new building. But the only funds available are those being channeled into the new town square, and the landscape architect in charge of the project wants nothing to do with her plans. 
     
    All Austin Williams wants to do is get the town square project finished so he can do right by the family business and then extricate himself from the town that reveres the brother who cost him so much. But the local media and the town's new librarian seem to be conspiring against him at every turn. Will the determined bookworm find her way into his blueprints--and possibly even his heart? 
     
    Novelist Tari Faris invites you back to the small town with a big heart in this second book in the Restoring Heritage series.
