Katherine came home to forget her past.
The last thing she expected is a hopeful future.
Young widow Katherine Osborne returns to her family's rustic camp on Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. She's determined to live a quiet life, but her socialite mother is equally determined to push her into a new marriage while she's still young.
Andrew Townsend has known Katherine since they were children. An attorney who is successful, but not wealthy, he knows she is socially out of his reach. But he's curious what changed the free-spirited girl he once knew into this private, somber young woman.
Katherine has kept hidden the details of her unsuccessful marriage. When past sins come to light, she must turn to God for the courage to be honest. But how can she trust the God she feels has let her down? When she confides in Andrew, their relationship takes a dramatic turn into uncharted territory.
Amid impossible obstacles, two young people must learn to trust enough to walk the path that God has cleared for them. A path that leads to healing and restoration. A path toward love.

But I believe it’s best we remain nothing but dear friends.” His mouth dropped open and his eyes widened with disbelief. “If you come to your senses, please let me know.” He briefly bowed, then spun on his heel and
When I married Charles I didn’t know he’d had a previous relationship—and a child.” She’d never have married him if she’d learned he and his mistress had an affair, let alone one that produced a son. She wasn’t at all surprised Charles hadn’t bothered to tell her. “Miss Roles, I think I’d like to speak to you about Zeke’s support now.” Harriet nodded, the muscles in her face tightening. “I have no obligation to turn over any funds, as you know. Charles never made any provision for the boy’s

When she beached the rowboat on the rocky soil beside the dock, he rushed to help her. He pulled the craft to shore. His face looked grim, his blond hair askew. During the last few weeks he’d lost his calm, quiet demeanor and that interesting hint of sardonic amusement only somewhat concealed behind his self-assured mask. He ran his
you can write to her when you get settled. She’d appreciate hearing from you. You might not think it appropriate to correspond, but it would mean so much to her. And I think you agree that’s more important than propriety.” He didn’t wish to disappoint dear Aunt Letty. “I’ll give it serious thought.” Of course, it would be better to make a clean break.
