Whitaker House (Jan 30, 2009)
God seems to enjoy turning our plans inside out and upside down when we least expect or want things to change. Hannah, who is a planner like me seems to have a whole lot of these carpet being jerked out from under her experiences in the course of this book and finding herself attracted to the new sheriff when sheâ€™s supposed to be the â€œstableâ€ doctorâ€™s girl doesnâ€™t help matters any. The secrets harbored by the sheriffâ€™s silent temporary ward that stowed away in his wagon at the previous town shake things up a bit as well when they find him and Sandy Shores.
Who is Hannahâ€™s true love, will Gabeâ€™s ward ever reveal what has his tongue tied, can Gabe move forward and start a new life and perhaps a family in Sandy Shores or will his past issues with finding the â€œright oneâ€ remain a roadblock to happiness? These questions and many others of faith, growth and trust are raised and at least partly answered in Hannahâ€™s story as her path crosses that of Gabe and Jesse. Donâ€™t miss the debut in MacLarenâ€™s newest series, Daughters of Jacob Kane. Like me you may find yourself a new town and characters to fall in love with amongst Sharleneâ€™s vivid historical narrative set in this turn-of-the-century Michigan town where adventure is waiting just around the next corner â€“ at least for the independent heroine of this book.
