Publisher's Summary

Lilly Arendale has fought the anger of prejudice all her life. Her Guatemalan mother and wealthy English father were very much in love and gave her the best of upbringings, but their family was never accepted in either country. Now, orphaned and alone in the mining town of Butte in the Montana Territory, the effects of racism have left Lilly with a one-year-old daughter and a fierce desire to avoid men at all costs.

Marcus Sullivan is a born adventurer, and the new preacher in town. He's not afraid to take a few risks and his ways may be unconventional, but he's determined to add some joy into the lives of these townspeople. Especially the beautiful young mother who won't have anything to do with him.

When the threat to Lilly intensifies and her worst fears comes true, how can she find the strength to release control of the one thing that matters most - her daughter's life? As Marcus steps in to help, the danger only escalates. Has he finally taken a risk he can't overcome?

Better narrating then previous book in series.

I saw a previous persons review about the narrators cadence during the narrating parts (not character quotations) it said they did not enjoy the cadence of the narrators tone. I wanted to just say I believe the narrator has a lilt to her voice, almost an Irish accent but not quite. Could just be the narrators regular accent. I don’t know where Gabrielle Reed comes from but maybe she naturally has that lilt. I enjoyed the story and while the narration was distracting, it at least was way better then the person who narrated the previous book in this series “the Lady and the Mountain Fire”, who made the characters talk like children.

I had a hard time listening

I usually do not have trouble with the performance. I can slow down or speed up to suit my taste. The trouble I had was not the charaters quotations, it was the narration. The sentences all were strangely done in a cadence I did not enjoy. I listened to the whole book because it was part of the series but honestly wanted to quit early on and was glad when the story was done.

What a great story!

The story itself was fantastic and kept my entrees most all the way through with one exception. The little toddlers voice. It sounded like a woman, not a child at all. A child that young would have rarely spoken perfect English nor used so grown up of a tone or verbiage . It would have been so much better had the reader worked on a child like voice of a tiny little girl. The story would have been richer than what it was.

Good clean story

I enjoyed a good clean Christian romance. The writing is not super stellar but definitely above average. The performance was average at best but I could get used to it by the end of the story and not have it distract from my enjoyment of the narration.
