Peterson does a good job inserting biblical truths all throughout the book so that the reader is encouraged and even reminded to live for God while reading a fictional love story. Merrill and Krause develop a romantic love, while making their religion top priority.

Merrill Krause spends her days helping run the farm with her family. She stays busy, but she yearns for a man to love and a family of her own. Rurik Jorgenson arrives in Minnesota to help his uncle with his furniture-making business. He meets Merrill and is intrigued by her beauty and independence. Rurik asks her to marry him. But when someone from his past shows up in town, bringing lies and scandal, will Rurik lose the woman he loves? (BETHANY HOUSE, Mar., 352 pp., $14.99)
