June is the youngest of the three sisters who have accepted male order bride proposals. She arrives in Seattle to find her prospective groom, Eli, very ill. He is serving as associate pastor to the famous Rev. Ingram, tent evangelist and pastor.
Inman has one primary goal - to build a huge, ornate tabernacle. He has already convinced Eli that the building is God's plan. June quickly joins the group and the vision. However, tragedy prevents her immediate marriage as she had planned.
Parker Sentel is Eli's best friend and care giver during his illness. A burly, hard working logger, he loves God, but adamantly opposes the building of the tabernacle and everyone associated with it except Eli.
Sam is the young niece of the head of the local orphanage. Sam and June are best friends but seem to live in different worlds until they start working together, holding church services at the logging camps.
June spreads herself very thin to allow for several ministries, but life in Seattle has not turned out as she expected and June wonders whether she is in the right place after all.
I am anxious to read book 3 in this series, "Hope"..and thanks Lori Copeland for some lighthearted, Christian, fiction, historical love stories.
