Ada has loved deeply and lost dearly. But protecting her heart could mean missing the love of a lifetime.
Library JournalFollowing her broken engagement, Ada Wentworth accepts a position as companion to an elderly woman in Hickory Ridge, TN. The young Bostonian plans eventually to open a hat shop in town, but she soon befriends two people who change her life in unexpected ways: Wyatt Caldwell, a lumber mill owner, and Sophie, a young mulatto orphan. In the aftermath of the Civil War, townsfolk are none too happy about Ada's friendship with Sophie, and tensions quickly rise. Then Ada's employer dies, and Ada must decide what to do about work and her feelings for Wyatt. VERDICT With well-drawn characters and just enough suspense to keep the pages turning, this winning debut will be a hit with fans of Gilbert Morris and Lauraine Snelling.
