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?

Very refreshing to listen to an interesting, and different romance from a Christian author. The story is very good. And there is no foul language or explicit sexual reading.
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.
Why did this book have to end😢 The cover of this book looks boring and does not do it any justice (truly, never judge a book by it's cover). This book blessed me during a rough & stressful week. It warmed my heart, made me smile, and laugh. This is going to my favourite collection...it is one of the best book I have ever read;I will make it my #3...I just love it.
P:S Listened to the book via audio. The narrator was amazing! She brought the characters to life!
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.
wonderful characters inspiring story masterful narration a feel good read. my first book of this author but i will be checking out what else she has written
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So many great examples of how "so called Christians" judge their fellow man, if you will. They forget that we are all sinners; none of us is perfect. It also showed the exceptional strength of the main female character. She was the poster child for forgiveness.
