Publisher's Summary

Cottonwood, Iowa, 1875

Lydia Walcott is on the run. With a broken arm and a wounded spirit she is escaping the hands of her cruel brother and the marriage he has arranged. She's running to the unknown, praying that God will lead her steps. Seeking shelter from an ice storm in a livery stall, Lydia goes to sleep hoping that in this small town of Cottonwood she'll find a job, a place to live, and friends.

Dr. Sterling Graham, having just delivered a baby, rides back to town over the ice covered roads. He's confident and secure in the knowledge that he is loved and respected by the people of the Cottonwood. Exhausted from the long night, he decides to sleep on the cot in the livery. Sterling's reputation and career, along with Lydia's hope for a new life, are put in jeopardy when gossips spread the news that, "Doc spent the night in the stable with a woman."

The story grows as "facts" are added. Without money to travel on west, Lydia feels trapped by her sense of responsibility for the doctor's good name. Even with his practice at risk, Sterling's compassion for the young woman whose physical wounds he treated stirs his heart. Something needs to be decided that will repair the damage to Sterling's career and give Lydia the home and safety she needs.

The unwelcome solution is that they marry. How do they learn about each other and mesh two lives into a successful marriage which honors God, while coping with issues of trust, pride, epidemic, and injury, and the fear that Lydia's brother will find her?

    Story
    "Great story!! Can't wait for more!"

    I was hooked after the first page when we meet Lydia who is planning her escape from a cruel and abusive brother. She does escape and lands in Cottonwood on a dark and cold night. There she finds herself in another hard place when gossip links her with the town doctor, Sterling. With few options left to them, Sterling and Lydia wed. Sterling soon learns Lydia needs time to heal from her past. With the help of friends and their faith he allows her that time...except there is always that chance that her brother will find her in Cottonwood.

    I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this story and the message of healing it contained. The narrator did a marvelous job with the story, timing and characters. I am looking forward to listening to more in the series.

    Story
    "Story bogged down by scripture"

    I enjoy Christian fiction but this one bogged down the story, which was good, with too much scripture. It really wasn't necessary to include such lengths of verses or sermons. Don't know that I'll read the sequel even though I enjoyed the story, because I don't want to be preached at so much. I'll read my own Bible, thank you.
