1896 - Honey Grove, TX Christian Historical Romance
"Satan is the one who wants to increase our burden, to weigh us down with shame and despair, to steal our joy and the strength of the Lord that goes with it. Believing his lies instead of God’s truth makes us weak."
Two young people of few words unexpectedly come together. Now that her father has died, Abigail owns their bakery, and the Mayors wife wants to punish her. Abby is told that she must sell the store because no single women are allowed to own a business in town. She turns to Zach, her first choice, to marry her. Zach carries over from the last book (not necessary to enjoy this). Marriage, a threat to his valuable freedom, was not on his horizon. This is a situation that neither of them would choose, yet since it's done with prayer, we see that God's plan is always the best. The story unfolds as they grow together, learn more about one another, find how much alike they are, and help each other to cope with their own trials and learn to love. Excellent unfolding of characters and depth of story. Now we need to know what happens to the other characters. You'll want to read the first book if you haven't already, just because I'm sure you'll enjoy that too.
