Neva Shilling has a heavy load of responsibility while her husband travels to neighboring communities and sells items from his wagon. In his absence, she faithfully runs the Shilling Mercantile, working to keep their business strong as the Depression takes its toll, and caring for their twins.
When a wagon pulls up after supper, Neva and her children rush out - and into the presence of the deputy driving a wagon carrying three young children. The deputy shocks her with the news that Warren and his wife have died, insisting it was their last request that the three children go live with "Aunt Neva". Neva's heart is shattered as she realizes that Warren's month-long travels were excuses for visits with his secret family. She wants nothing more than to forget Warren, but can she abandon these innocent children to an orphanage? Yet if she takes them in, will she ever be able to see them as more than evidence of her husband's betrayal and love them the way God does?

This book contains more than one unexpected plot twist that kept me guessing. I loved the depth of characters as well as the story and the strong narration. All of Ms. Sawyer's books grip me, but this is my new favorite. I highly recommend it to any fan of excellent historical fiction, you won't be disappointed.
I loved the story of this book so spiritual and full of sound biblical advice.
Kate Forbes is one of my favorite narrators. She could make a menu come to life.
Kim Vogel Sawyer never lets me down but this story really was exceptional. I appreciate when authors can give an accurate account of our Lord and Savior.
