When Drewry Sheffield’s uncle promises her hand in marriage as payment of a gambling debt, God seems strangely silent. Orphaned, and with no kin to help her, Drewry feels she must take matters into her own hands—and quickly! Through an unexpected turn of events, she arrives in Richmond, Virginia, ready to assume a new identity as nanny to the two young children of wealthy plantation owner Chase Auburn. Chase, a Christian who prizes honesty above all other virtues, is delighted with Drewry, yet he seems sadly preoccupied. The Lord has taken his beloved wife, and he is determined never to love again. Caught up in the chaos of the post-Civil War South and the turmoil of her own heart, Drewry must find a way to gamble on the truth…before Chase decides to call her bluff.

About the Author
Once upon a time, best-selling author Loree Lough literally sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the U.S. Now and then, she blows the dust from her six-string to croon a tune or two for her grandchildren, but she mostly just writes. Over the years, her stories have earned nearly 100 industry and Readers’ Choice awards, seven movie options, and over eighty four- and five-star reviews. Loree has nearly seven million copies of her books in circulation. She has written more than 100 books, thousands of articles, and many short stories. Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach to teaching makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers’ organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, and college and high school writing programs in the U.S. and abroad. A writer who believes in “giving back,” Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers’ Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and several other worthwhile organizations. She splits her time between her home in the Baltimore suburbs and a cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, sharing both with her real-life hero, Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of lighthouses, wind chimes, “wolf stuff.”
