About the Book

It was more than she dreamt.  But as the romance began to bud, she felt the thorns of a heartless beauty rise to tear it apart.

Young widow, Katie Jensen, endures patiently under her oppressive uncle in desolate Arizona Territory. She tries to keep her promise to her dead aunt to be a witness and take care of her uncle but when his tirades grow worse, she gathers her two precious little ones and runs.

Making their way to an unknown land, they come to the town of White Rock, which is strangely like the place in the dreams Katie has been having. They are welcomed into the cottage of a kindly grandmother who takes in borders.

When Danny, the older woman’s grandson, comes home, he finds surprises in store: a crisis, a beautiful young woman, and her adorable children who bring laughter and life into all their weary souls.

Katie is filled with hope when an unexpected romance sparks but there is a vindictive raven-haired beauty and an old enemy conspiring to put it out—permanently.

Will God give Katie rest as she and the family pray for their enemies?

Can she stand strong in her faith when fear overwhelms her?

My Ideation

This is a must read!!  This book captured me right away and I couldn’t wait to get to it each night!  The characters are fantastic.  They were tenderhearted and always looking out for one another.  I enjoy reading stories like this.  Stories where people care for one another, are respectful, and love the Lord.  

Katie and her children have been treated so badly by her uncle.  She continued to take care of him, however.  This shows that she is a very humble woman.  Not only is she teaching her children the proper ways, but she is pleasing God by acting this way.   For her obedience, God blesses Katie and the children.  She finds happiness in many different ways and brings happiness to others.  

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
