Brooklyn Myers never intended to return to her hometown of Thunder Creek, Idaho, but God seemed to have different plans. When her husband whom she has been separated from dies and leaves his family home and property to her and her daughter, she sees it as the perfect opportunity to give her daughter a better life.

As their paths continue to cross, and they get to know each other better, an attraction builds, but they both have some obstacles to overcome, and Brooklyn must get over her past and learn to trust again.
This was a beautifully written, captivating story; I didn’t want to put the book down. You’ll fall in love with the characters and be rooting for them each step of the way. Rooting for Brooklyn to stand up for herself, to learn to trust men again, and to give Derek a chance. If you love a good romance, this is one you should read!

This was the first book I’ve read of Cara Putman’s and I was not disappointed. It was fantastic! The characters were complex and well developed, they were very likable. From the beginning, I was sucked into the story. There were times where after reading the book, I couldn’t remember if I read it in the story or if it was a news headline. It’s full of twists and turns and keeps the reader guessing until the very end. I loved every minute of it, and can’t wait to read more of Putman’s books! If you too like suspense, you need to read this book!

This was a great read! I loved the characters and I found myself bracing myself through all the twists and turns. There were a few places I found myself a little confused because I don’t know a whole lot about Catholicism, but those places didn’t interfere with the main story. Overall, if you love mysteries and you are looking for a different perspective such as, a detective who also is a nun, then this book is one you should check out!

This story is set in Georgia during the post Civil War era. I found both the story and the characters to be very well developed. I loved the twists and turns that are thrown in to keep you on your toes. It was hard to put down. There were times, I’ll admit, where I wondered so much what was going to happen next that I had to stop myself from looking forward in the book to cheat to see the outcome, so I’d know what was coming. I can’t wait to read more of Dorothy Love’s books. If you love historical fiction with suspense and romance mixed in, this is the perfect read for you!
