THE MAVERICK PREACHER (4) by Victoria Bylin: 1875 Denver. Adelaide Clarke, who runs a boardinghouse for women, has guarded her past since coming to town and isn't going to let anyone take away Stephen Hagan Clarke, her son by a terrible tragedy. Joshua Blue shows up at the boardinghouse looking for his sister and forgiveness. Adelaide fears him initially, but soon realizes they'll have to trust each other and come clean with their pasts. When accidents start happening, they rely not only on each other but also on their faith to learn who's trying to run them out of town. Can two broken spirits find peace with one another and a second chance at loving? Readers will get caught up in the characters' pain, joy, sorrow and anger and believe there's hope and forgiveness for them as well as for the characters.
