Summary

A clean, sweet historical romance set in 1873. 
Rancher’s daughter Sarah Wilerson has been engaged to Ethan Paulson, a Clear Creek hotel manager, for two years. Although Ethan is a nice man, Sarah has postponed the wedding twice, unsure whether she can live and work in the family’s hotel—alongside an overbearing mother–in–law. 
West Point–trained Captain Marcus Brenner was stationed at Fort Wallace in western Kansas, and wounded in a skirmish with the Cheyenne Indians. He has been discharged from the army and recuperating at his uncle’s ranch in Ellsworth County, Kansas. There he meets Sarah, who helps him recover from his wounds and nightmares. Marcus falls in love with Sarah, but refuses to consider marrying her because of her engagement to another man. And, due to his battle injuries, he may not be able to give Sarah the houseful of children for which she yearns for either. 
Unable to bring herself to go through with her wedding on the third date set, Sarah leaves her groom at the altar and rides after Marcus, determined to convince him to marry her. 
Fate throws a challenge in their path when they suddenly become guardians of six young children. Can Sarah convince Marcus to become the father the children need, and the husband she wants?

    When Gia comes face to face with a past she didn't know she had, will she learn to trust in a future she can’t control? 
    MEET GEORGIA GUSTAFSON 
    Gia Gustafson is officially coming of age... but now what? She feels like she's standing still, while everything—and everyone—around her is moving at lightning speed.  Her best friend, Ricky Zander, is acting like a stranger, her grandparents have grown old almost overnight, and her sisters have all found their happily-ever-afters. 
    Once again, she’s the odd Gustafson Girl out. 
    Then there's Angela Clinton, the girl who plowed her el Camino into the side of Paul and Simone Gustafson's car when Gia was only four. After spending most of her adult life in jail, Angela is finally coming home, and she wants to make amends with the four sisters she made orphans so many years ago. 
    As if life wasn't confusing enough, the gorgeous new guy at work is doing his best to sweep Gia off her feet, and Ricky is having none of it. 
    So when a stranger she’d recognize anywhere shows up unannounced on her doorstep, Gia isn’t so sure she’s ready to grow up after all. 
    MEET THE GUSTAFSON GIRLS  
    When Paul and Simone Gustafson are killed by a drunk driver, the lives of their daughters change irrevocably. Although raised by loving grandparents, it's the G-FOURce--the Gustafson Four Sisters Club--that binds them together when their differences would tear them apart. All grown up now, Juliette has become the quintessential doormat, Renata, the self-appointed matriarchal figure. Phoebe is, at least according to Renata, borderline narcissistic, and Gia is on the verge of a major identity crisis.  
    And now, Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents' car on the night of Juliette's high school graduation, is back in town and looking for restoration. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold the sisters together as they step into the eye of the storm that's been brewing for the last sixteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds? 
    Note: The Gustafson Girls series is Women's Fiction/Christian Romance written from a Christian world view.

    MEET RENATA GUSTAFSON 
    Renata Gustafson Dixon’s life is going exactly the way she wants it. Almost. A wonderful husband, four boys who fill her life with mostly joy and sometimes a little heartache now and then. She and John are giving things one last shot for the icing on the cake; a little girl with copper curls like John’s and cupid bow lips like Renata’s. Then Juliette, the oldest of the four Gustafson sisters, opens up a can of worms labeled ‘Angela Clinton’ at a G-FOURce meeting. Things are said and accusations made that can’t be taken back, sending Renata’s carefully-constructed world spinning out beyond her control. Renata must learn to set aside her own will and lean on the strength of those who love her before she loses all hope for the future. 
     
    Then there’s Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents’ car on the night of Juliette’s high school graduation. Angela’s prison sentence is winding down; soon she’ll be eligible for parole and moving back to town. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold them together as they step into the eye of the storm that’s been brewing for the last fifteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds?
