Publisher's Summary

Wealthy heiress Jessica McCarthy desperately wants to be married and have a family. A rogue and a scoundrel, Zachary Belk is the only one who has proposed. Even though her father warns her that Zachary won't make a good husband, she marries him. She soon discovers that her father was right. When the stock market crashes and both families are left penniless, Zachary seeks a new fortune on a property he owns in another Manhattan, in Kansas. They are only there a short time before he deserts her. With a new baby, Jessica must learn to survive and support her family in an unfamiliar frontier land with only her faith and determination to guide her.

An enjoyable family story .

Battling against every bad outcome that happened, Jessica never gave up her responsibility to care for her "family" and her hard work and christian faith were respected by the townsfolk. A wonderful story of an amazing woman struggling against all odds and surviving.
