Her life was planned out ~ until he rode in ~ Illinois prairie ~ 1859
After four long years away, Esther Stanton returns to the prairie to care for her sister Charlotte’s family following the birth of her second child. The month-long stay seems much too short as Esther becomes acquainted with her brother-in-law’s new ranch hand, Stewart Brant. When obligations compel her to return to Cincinnati and to the man her overbearing mother intends her to wed, she loses hope of ever knowing true happiness.
Still reeling from a hurtful relationship, Stew is reluctant to open his heart to Esther. But when he faces a life-threatening injury with Esther tending him, their bond deepens. Heartbroken when she leaves, he sets out after her and inadvertently stumbles across an illegal slave-trade operation, the knowledge of which puts him, as well as Esther and her family, in jeopardy.
What an awesome journey that the author has taken us on!!
With rip rouring adventures at every twist and turn this book will have you shouting at the characters and crying with them at the same time.
There's beautiful messages in here that helps us to know God if n you don't already know Him.
To the Lord, there is no class of people high society, middle or poor He loves us all the same. He only wants your heart no matter who you are.
I loved Stew or Stuart Brant especially his unselfish acts in this story. His strength and courage and unselfiahness are what makes him a good man but he lacked one thing.
Esther has truly grown into herself and is a delightful person to be around. She's a character to be proud of.
Annie and Toby are wonderful as well. Annie with all of her encouragement and love for strangers was all it took to make her a fav of mine
I'd like to know what part of Kentucky they lived in. I sometimes wished I had lived back then to see for myself what this place might've looked like!!
Well done Cynthia!! A great ending to this series!!! And a blessing as well!!
The Lord Jesus is my friend and He always shall be.
I highly recommend this book!! It's fantastic!!!
I received a complimentary copy with no compensations received. All opinions are my own
