Annabelle, who was a minor character in the first book, is now the main character in this book. This book starts out with her becoming a widow. She was not married in the last book, so we learn bits and pieces of her story as we read. Her husband has a ranch in Idaho that she is going to go to in order to get away from Fountain Creek. She puts out an advertisement to get a driver to accompany her along the way, and her husband's brother responds, not knowing she is the widow, nor knowing his brother has even died.
Matthew Taylor, who was also a minor character from the last book, does not like Annabelle one bit and knows that she worked in the local brothel. He is so angry that his brother would marry such a woman. She must have only married him to get out of that brothel but she probably has continued her harlot ways. When he sees Annabelle needs to go to Idaho, he is too desperate for money to refuse.
Another portion of this story involves Annabelle longing to rescue a young girl she knew from the brothel she worked at. She wants to get her out and help her, but has no idea where she has been sent to. Her goal is to have her live with her on her new homestead. She doesn't know how to tell this to Matthew though, because why would he even care?
I enjoyed this story. It was definitely about seeing how people can grow, change, and forgive. It was a historic Christian fiction story that had problems that weren't always so easy to solve. There were times though in reading this that I think the author expect us to figure out what happened, as there are slight gaps here and there.
