Although Abigail Stanton has recently suffered the loss of her husband and young son, she is determined to go onto make a difference in the world. She accepts a position as housekeeper and nanny in 1895 Colorado Springs for a man she has been warned is not only a heathen but openly hostile to neighbors as well. She gets the full brunt of his rancor-cloaked pain. But Abigail stays on for the sake of his daughter.

Conor MacKay is attracted to the prim and proper lady hes hired, but in order to love, he must face the bitterness festering in his soul. Kathleen Morgan exposes those wounds to Gods healing. Readers will look forward to the next book in the Brides of Culdee Creek series. (Sep., 320 pp., $11.99)
