From Library Journal
Mail-order bride June Kallahan arrives in Seattle from Michigan to discover that her intended, Eli Messenger, the assistant to a famous evangelist named Isaac Inman, is ill. After he dies, June stays on to work at the local orphanage, where she realizes Inman is allowing the orphans to go without in order to build a showy tabernacle. A romance blooms between June and Parker Sentell, a friend of Eli's, as they try to convince Inman of the errors of his thinking. Like its predecessor (Faith, LJ 11/1/98), this smoothly written romance should please most readers, although the characterization of a flawed clergymanAan intriguing twist in a genre that usually demands perfect behavior from its religious charactersAmakes it a cut above many other Christian romances and may help it appeal to a wider audience.

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.
