Faith Butler is abandoned and divorced by her husband. Stranded in the Wild West of 1886, she trusts the Lord with her future and finds a miracle in the position of housekeeper for wealthy, brooding Drake Rutledge. Pursued by private demons of guilt and self-loathing, Drake finds Faith's arrival a bittersweet torment. He realizes that for years no one has dared SPEAK TO ME OF LOVE (3). As Faith lets sunlight pour into the shadowed house, Drake feels his soul awaken with hope. If only their pasts would not resurface to shroud them in darkness once more. Veteran author Robin Lee Hatcher pens a charming, fast-paced story of redemption and restored trust. But a few issues seem too easily resolved, and a less two-dimensional villain would have enhanced the plot. (Aug., 288 pp., $9.99)
