Summary

When Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she's forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend's missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she's telling.After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can't matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. And as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, revealing the truth isn't worth putting him and everyone she loves in danger.

    Rebekah Lantz feels imprisoned by circumstances she didn’t create. Tobias Byler is haunted by regret. Can two young runaways from half a world away teach them the healing power of true family? 
    Rebekah isn’t like her sister, but the watchful gaze of her family and small, close knit Amish community makes her feel as if she’s been judged and found lacking. The men avoid her and the women whisper behind her back. She simply longs for the same chance to be a wife and mother that her friends have. 
    Tobias Byler only wants to escape feelings for a woman he knows he should never have allowed to get close to him. Moving with his family to isolated Bee County, Texas, seemed the best way to leave his mistakes behind. But even a move across the country can’t erase the past that accompanies his every thought. 
    A surprise encounter with two half-starved runaway children forces both Rebekah and Tobias to turn to each other to help a sister and brother who have traveled thousands of miles in search of lives of unfettered peace and joy. 
    In doing so, Rebekah and Tobias discover the key to forgetting the past is the one that will open the door to love and the future they both seek.

    Lord Teach Us to Pray

    THE disciples had been with Christ, and seen Him pray. They had learnt
    to understand something of the connection between His wondrous life in public,
    and His secret life of prayer. They had learnt to believe in Him as a Master in
    the art of prayer—none could pray like Him. And so they came to Him with the
    request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ And in after years they would have told us
    that there were few things more wonderful or blessed that He taught them than
    His lessons on prayer.
    
    And now still it
    comes to pass, as He is praying in a, certain place, that disciples who see Him
    thus engaged feel the need of repeating the same request, ‘Lord, teach us to
    pray.’ As we grow in the Christian life, the thought and the faith of the
    Beloved Master in His never-failing intercession becomes evermore precious, and
    the hope of being Like Christ in His
    intercession gains an attractiveness before unknown. And as me see Him pray,
    and remember that there is none who can pray like Him, and none who can teach
    like Him, we feel the petition of the disciples, ‘Lord, teach us to pray,’ is
    just what we need. And as we think how all He is and has, how He Himself is our
    very own, how He is Himself our life, we feel assured that we have but to ask,
    and He will be delighted to take us up into closer fellowship with Himself, and
    teach us to pray even as He prays.
