The main character, Molly Hatfield, has dedicated her life to caring for her wheelchair-bound teenaged brother Denny. So when Molly learns that a wealthy rancher in Arizona is looking for an heiress, she put her whole heart into this opportunity. This way she has the chance to provide a real home for her brother. While trying to gain permanent employment, Molly meets the town’s charming, unmarried doctor. Molly decides to avoid her feeling for Caleb since she would jeopardize her new job and her brother’s future well-being.
Falling in love with Caleb would threaten everything she’s worked for. Could this be the very reason God brought her to Arizona?
This book was very well written and would be a fund read for high school girls. One of the main problems within the western town is an alcohol problem among the townsmen. I don’t feel the books makes a big enough stand against drinking to get drunk and even the preacher character drowns his sorrows in alcohol on one occasion. Parents should be cautioned on this particular aspect of the book. (rev. M.Hicks)
About the author: Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this, except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction."
It turns out God was and Margaret did. She now has more than 20 novels to her credit. In addition, she's written many Christian articles and a non-fiction book. Still, it took a lot of prodding from God before Margaret tried her hand at writing inspirational fiction which led to her Rocky Creek series. "I love writing about characters at different stages of faith," she says of the new direction her writing career has taken, "and I'm here to stay."
