Proper English governess Eleanor Morgan flees to the colonies to escape the wrath of a brute of an employer. When the Charles Town family she’s to work for never arrives to collect her from the dock, she is forced to settle for the only reputable choice remaining to her—marriage to a man she’s never met. Trapper and tracker Samuel Heath is a hardened survivor used to getting his own way by brain or by brawn, and he’s determined to find a mother for his young daughter. But finding a wife proves to be impossible. No upstanding woman wants to marry a murderer.

My thoughts:

I have to say, I am loving everything I read my Michelle. She truly is a talented author.

From the very first chapter of this book I was drawn into Eleanor’s story and the journey she found herself on.

Then was rough and tumble Samuel. Who on the inside is really trying to seek after God’s heart and will. I love his honesty in questioning what God is up to when Eleanor comes into his life. How often do we do that same thing?

From their first meeting I could sense the tension would be great between these two characters and as they tried to fight growing feelings my heart ached for them.

I can’t forget sweet Grace, Samuel’s little girl who will pull at your heartstrings.

So many yummy layers to this book. If you enjoy a good historical romance this is a great one!
