Summer's Promise by Irene Brand


Rural North Carolina was the last place military man David Brown ever expected to call home. Brought here by tragedy, he now shared guardianship of his niece and nephew with a woman he'd never dreamed would share his home–or his attraction….

Wall Street banker Summer Weaver had never asked God for anything. Now she prayed for strength to care for her sister's orphaned children–and found herself leaning on their uncle for support. Summer never imagined that footloose David could ever become so steadfast–or that she'd be willing to give up everything that had seemed important for something that mattered far more….

The deaths of her sister and his brother bring Summer and David back into each other's lives. Their siblings requested tht the two of them raise their children upon their death. They also requested that the two of them raise them in North Carolina where the family had been running a school/home for troubled youth. They also wanted Summer and David to continue their work at tje mission school. They both are very resistant to that idea. They both have successful careers and lives in other parts of the country and neither wants to give it up. Neither of them have experience with children either and feel that other family members would be better for the two orphaned children. Furthermore, neither are believers and don't feel right about serving at a christian school. Anyway... despite thwir initial reaction, they decide to try it for a year. But will a temporary arrangement prove permanent?
