1891 . . . Spinster librarian, Olive Wilkins, is shocked to learn of her brother's violent death at a saloon gaming table and her sister-in-law's subsequent murder, traveling far from her staid life to rescue her niece and nephew, now orphans. She arrives to find the circumstances of her brother's life deplorable and her long held beliefs of family and tradition, shaken.
Accustomed to the sophistication of Philadelphia, Olive arrives in Spencer, Ohio, a rough and tumble world she is not familiar with, facing two traumatized children. Her niece and nephew, Mary and John, have been living with a neighboring farmer, widower Jacob Butler, the father of three young children of his own and a man still in pain from the recent loss of his wife.
Real danger threatens Olive and Mary and John while Jacob and his own brood battle the day-to-day struggles for survival. Will Olive and Jacob find the strength to fight their battles alone or together? Will love conquer the bitterness of loss and broken dreams?

Characters captured interest.
I like the story a lot, and enjoyed all the characters.
What a great read. Couldn't put it down. Read from cover to cover in one sitting.
Loved every word!
This was a little different than what I'm used to reading and really enjoyed it. Loved the characters.
A well-written powerful love story. I got to know Olive so well. I actually cried and cried over the happy ending . Not the kind of book I usually read. So glad I took a chance on it.
