Susanna Greyshott's family were once wealthy and well-to-do, but they have fallen upon hard times, and she and her Mama have been forced to make changes and do the best they can under the circumstances. But it has made Susanna hard as flint, unwilling to forgive and even less willing to open her heart. She is quite prepared to move to Texas, where she believes she may finally be able to build a life for her and her Mama where they are beholden to no-one, but a face from her past could ruin it all. Can she truly let herself accept all the benefits and happiness that Faith Creek longs to offer? Will she learn to forgive and accept the love that has always been all around her?
Dr. Nathaniel Baron has been Faith Creek's only physician for some time, but as more and more people arrive and make their homes there he knows he will have to expand the practice. But searching for suitable doctors and nurses who actually wish to make a new start in the wilds of Texas isn't that easy - especially when you secretly wish to find a bride and haven't even let yourself know it yet!
Another fun, easy listen by Karla Gracey, we visit Faith Creek once more. Susanna is looking to move to a new town with her mother so they can start their lives over. Nathanial Baron is looking for a new nurse, and with this the possibility of a wife. When he sees Susanna's letter, and her recommendation from the hospital she works in, he hires her even though she states plainly that she has no intention of ever getting married. When the two meet though, their chemistry is immediate. When learning of her stepfather, and why she wanted to move though, things become a little sticky. It is touch and go, and is fun to see if these two can actually get their acts together and keep Susanna's mother happy at the same time!
Alan Taylor's portrayal of this historical romance series continues to be spot on. Love his voice for all the characters, especially is with Susanna's stepfather, I found it perfect and fun!
For all those who believe in love at first sight, this audible is for you.
Alan Taylor as always, does a wonderful job of narrating.
