This third book in the Family Heirloom series is full of angst and many problems for the characters. It's a depressing story, with those in it missing the joy and peace being a Christian can provide. It includes an offstage rape.

Kimberly Wolfe has loved Peter Samuels for years, something she kept well hidden because he was married. Now widowed for a year, Peter finds himself desiring intimacy, yet he knows the only way to share it is through marriage and believes it's too soon after his loss. As for Kim, the lessons taught by a father who twisted God's word to his own advantage make her doubt that she will ever be able to share her life with any man. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
