Reader's Favorite Finalist 2016
Caleb hurried to the post office. He had to get in and out before his sister finished at the general store. “Any mail for the Stuarts?” he asked the postmaster.
The postmaster took a lazy look at him over the top of his eyeglasses and gave a heaving sigh as he turned around to check. “Yep. Somethin’ from Ohio and somethin’ from Montana.”
Tapping his foot, Caleb waited until the large man put the letters lazily in his hand. As he left he wondered why Anna had written someone in Montana and who she knew in Montana. It was really none of his business, but he was still curious. He folded the Ohio letter in half and stashed it in his back pocket. It would get wrinkled, but at least Anna wouldn’t know about it.
As Caleb struggles through some inner battles, he secretly starts a correspondence with a widow and her daughter. Their unabashed faith in God convicts him and increases his inner struggles.
Unable to find a steady job, Maggie places an advertisement to become a mail-order bride. Her daughter, Rachel, is her motivation and encouragement, but if Maggie doesn’t find a job or husband soon, Rachel might not survive through the next year.
Can Caleb learn to trust God despite his past? Can Maggie and Rachel hold onto their faith despite all their trials? What will happen when they meet in person?
While this book can be read as a stand alone, it would be easier to understand some portions of the story if you read the second book of the series, Be Thou My Vision first.
The widowed Earl of Essex, betrothed to Lady Juliana...is hopelessly distracted by the rescue missions for the governess of his three children.
When Lady Margaret Colton and daughter-in-law Lady Georgiana Colton flee the revolution of Napoleonic France to live with distant relations, Lady Georgiana is forced to accept the position of governess for the widowed Earl's three children.
The Earl, however, only has eyes for his intended, Lady Juliana; though there is a certain something, a "je ne sais quoi..." regarding his new governess.
Will he ever be able to stop rescuing Lady Georgiana from her precarious predicaments? When it comes to dealing with his headstrong daughter and losing a string of previous governesses, this beautiful governess is proving herself to be quite cable! Perhaps it is he, who is in need of rescue!
This is a delightful story with a theme of kindness. The author has incorporated a number of French words and their translations into this novel, making this book an excellent choice to brush up on your use of the beautiful and romantic French language.
