In desperate need of a new sexton for his church, minister Sam Kinkade is willing to consider any decent candidate. Newcomer Elisa Martinez seems too frail to take on the job, especially since she's already working full-time at a seniors' home, but she proves herself. The attraction between them is a complication neither expects.

Significant obstacles to a relationship exist. Sam's engaged, and Elisa carries a dark secret with her from town to town. As he gets to know her, Sam wants to share Elisa's burden, but allowing that could jeopardize both of their lives—and she isn't willing to risk it. But soon, she has no choice.

Warmly humorous and sweetly romantic, Endless Chain is an involving, beautiful story that also deals convincingly and carefully with some real issues: racial, religious and political persecution. Don't miss it! (Jul., 464 pp., $19.95)
