In book two of the Heart's True Desire series, when young Elizabeth Cameron is rescued from the Indians who had captured her, Elizabeth's pious father holds her responsible for events that were beyond her control.

Years later, Elizabeth heads off to join a group of women called the Sanctificationists. Wanting to protect her from the prejudices she's sure to encounter, her brother assigns Caleb Martin to watch over her. Huge secrets stand between Elizabeth and Caleb as they begin to fall in love.

In this beautiful love story, two hearts seek God's redemption; one sin-scarred, and the other wounded and terrified of falling in love. Jane Orcutt's name may be fairly new to readers, but her work is every bit as fantastic as veteran authors, and like cream, shes certain to rise to the top. (Oct., 352 pp., $7.95)
