Fans of Peterson will adore this novel. Her characters are rich with wisdom, common sense and strong faith. Their flaws are out in the open, which makes them real to the reader.

Catherine Newbury has been away from her home and friends in England for five years. She was forced to flee when her father was falsely accused of dealing in slaves and has had to create a false identity to keep herself safe.

While in America, she made a name for herself as a seamstress. When she has a chance encounter with Carter Danby, someone she met on the night she fled, it could place her in harm's way. Carter remembers Catherine and truly wants to help her, but he's afraid he'll lose her forever. Can love be enough to solve their problems? (Bethany House, Mar., 352 pp. $13.99)
