In rural Florida, 1903, Mae Hinton cares for her father and younger brothers, trying to fill her deceased mother's shoes. Her life is shattered and her faith tested when her innocence is stolen by roving miscreants. Left unconscious and unable to identify her attackers, she pledges to help other victimized women. She pursues an education and learns to deal with bigoted ministers, well-to-do hypocrites, and men with higher regard for their livestock than their women.
Edward Finch is nearly done with medical studies in England when he comes home for the holidays. Love flourishes, and Mae seems close to achieving her dreams of both true love and a haven for victims, once she can explain to him why she carries a pistol. Then her new-found happiness is upset by a murder as one of her attackers returns. She may settle this herself... or she may find that vengeance truly belongs to God.

My heart is still pounding after having just listened this book. Linda Tillis has a gift for bringing her characters to life with humor, faith and romance. She tells a compelling story that takes the reader on a journey of love, hope and healing. This is certainly a book I will recommend and will listen to again. I giggled with the antics of young Patrick and the next minute I was brought to tears...I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster that I didn't want to get off. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy when you sit down to listen to this one...you won't be sorry though as it is amazing. T.J. Allen does a wonderful job of bringing all the characters to life with his exceptional narration. I received a free copy of this book and have voluntarily provided this unbiased review and do so with pleasure.
