Alice Chesterfield never imagined that the murder of her father and the attack on her could ever lead to a better life than the one she had in Colorado. But when Alice's attacker returns, she seeks safety and refuge on a Texas ranch. There Alice meets and falls in love with Robert Barnett, who is already engaged. While Alice hides her feelings, Robert struggles with his waning love for his fiancée. Meanwhile, Alice discovers that the previous existence she experienced with her father in Colorado was a sham: her mother and brother, long thought dead, are alive. Disillusioned, Alice must trust God to help her find peace. VERDICT Peterson's second book in the historical series (after A Sensible Arrangement) offers a well-crafted narrative and engaging characters. A memorable and heartwarming pick for fans of novels by Beth Vogt and Cathleen Armstrong.
