Overview

Faith has spent her life since the age of nine playing the role of mother to her four younger sisters. Now as her twenty first birthday approaches she knows that all of that is about to change. Her father never wanted girls and when her mother died during the birth of yet another daughter, he'd made a vow. If he had to have daughters then he would use them to get what he wanted most…sons. So on their twenty-first birthday, they are to be married off to the man of his choice, whether they like it or not.

But Faith has bigger dreams than spending her life living in the small town community that sees nothing wrong with her father's dictates. So leaving her sisters behind for the first time, she heads down the road, more afraid to stay than to face the unknown.

When a thunderstorm sends her looking for shelter in the woods outside town, she finds herself in the arms of Jake Daniels. She's seen him in town a time or two but has never really spoken with him. But Jake has been waiting to get her out from under her father's eyes for years and he is determined to use this chance to show her just how good things could be between them. With a little faith, they can both have everything they want.

Read an Excerpt

Faith looked back at the house sitting on the hill behind her, the house that held all of her childhood memories and nightmares. She hated to leave her sisters behind but there was no longer any choice for her. Today was her twenty first birthday and everyone knew what that meant. Today would be her wedding day.

Her father had made it clear that since he had nothing but stupid daughters that he would get out of them what he had always wanted most. Sons or at least the equivalent. So on their twenty first birthdays they were to be wed to whatever person he had already chosen for them and become someone else’s problem from that point on. But Faith couldn’t do what was expected of her, was tired of even trying. So today was the day that she left this dead end town behind and faced her future on her own. The only thing she regretted was the four sisters she was forced into leaving behind.

Hope would be the oldest now, but at least at eighteen she would still have a few more years to look after the others before she was placed on the marriage block. Then there was Charity who was just sixteen and already the beauty of them all. Prudence was fourteen and all long legs and arms. And baby Destiny was just twelve and still so much a needy child that it broke Faith’s heart. She had tried so hard to be the mother they had been denied. But there came a time when you either had to give in or take a stand, and Faith was ready to take a stand.

She brushed the tears from her eyes and turned back toward the woods beside the edge of the drive. No more looking back. No more dying a little more inside every day that she stayed with him. Finally it was her turn to find a life of her own as far away from Daddy and his rules as she could run. All she needed was a little faith.

    Good Book - Pages

    Again Good book but disappointed in the page to price ratio.
    Total Pages = 27, Actual Story Pages = 19, Price =$3.06 --
    That's $.16 a page -- lets do some math... at $.16 a page for a 300 page book the total cost would be $48.00.

    I really think someone needs to do some math when they are pricing these Nook Books.

    A decent short

    I liked the slight twist. A pleasant surprise that made me smile a lil. Will look for the other daughters' stories.
