Book Three in the Birthstone Brides series--A Sweet Historical Small-town Romance
March 1873, Cottonwood Falls, Kansas—A Clean and Wholesome Love Story
Why would Abby’s parents give her away when she was ten years old?
That’s what Abigail Stevens would like to know. Now, after nine years in the city, she’s back home trying to prove to her parents she’s as worthy as her brother and should be allowed to stay. Desperate for love and acceptance, Abby strives to love her family while resenting the separation she never wanted or understood.
Frank Vincent expected his best friend’s little sister to be a city girl after living away so long. Instead, she’s the tomboy he remembers from childhood, only far more intriguing. Amazing what a few years has done. This new attraction, however, complicates his plans to go to Texas as does his desire to help her overcome bitterness from her past. When she helps him build a fence, he’s sure of his love for her, if only he could get past the stony wall of distrust around her heart.
Set in the small town of Cottonwood Falls, Kansas, the Birthstone Brides series will include twelve novellas - One for each month of the year. Each bride receives her birthstone in a piece of jewelry from the man she will marry. Expect a new story to be released each month.
