Linnie Bingham is a widow. Her husband and children died 10 years ago. It isnít easy being a widow woman in the 1880ís, but Linnie is determined to make things work. She is homesteading a farm by herself. There are times when her physical strength gives out, but not her strength in the Lord. This is what keeps her going, year after year. When a stranger comes to town offering to help anyone who needs it, Linnie's life will never be the same again.


David Hansen is new in town. He is not the typical vagrant who passes through thinking he will get rich quick. He is searching for something even though he doesn't know what it is. His journey will lead him to a person he doesnít even know existed and to a place in his life he never imagined he would find.


Linnie didnít want to get involved with anyone; she felt she was betraying her dead husbandís memory and dreams he had for them. She also didnít want to get involved with someone who didnít know the Lord. David was falling for Linnie; he just didnít understand how someone could believe in a God which would let bad things happen to good people.


This was a fast read, under a 100 pages. It is also Kristi Dawn Hurleyís first book. Linnie and David were meant for each other. It took a tragedy for each of them to realize they could begin again together. I enjoyed this book a lot. The only problem I had with it was the short length. It would have been great to go further into Linnie and Davidís story. Maybe there will be a second book from this talented author.
