Lucy and Elton are neighbors—but not very neighborly...
He's jealous of his wife's friendship with Lucy, and she thinks he's an overbearing ruffian, but when her friend suddenly dies, Lucy agrees to marry Elton—but only for the sake of the children. Lucy is still grieving her own loss and is steadfast in her faith, while Elton is an unbeliever, bitter over his wife's death and the murder of his parents by natives.
When Elton is elected by Mossy Ridge residents to oversee the native relocation program, he finds himself protecting those he once despised. With Lucy's help, he uncovers a secret plot to incite violence against the natives, and takes a journey toward forgiveness that leads him to the Lord.
Just when Lucy dares to love again, Elton makes a confession that breaks her heart. Will love cause him to stay? Or, cause him to go?
Loved how God’s redeeming mercy was shown through Elton’s life and how Lucy walked in grace while having to put up with him. She is a strong character who overcomes her own heartache, moving from a hard heart to a soft heart in Christ Jesus. Great read with a happy ending.
This book is well written. It is such a great story that I just wanted to keep reading it. I had a hard time putting it down. Loved the characters and the way they fell in love, despite how they tried not to.
I just finished Janis Jakes new book. Absolutely one of the best I have read. “A Rose in Winter” kept me so involved I could see and feel the story.
