In a desperate time, can Neva find forgiveness for a grievous wrong—and make room for hope?
Neva Shilling has a heavy load of responsibility while her husband travels to neighboring communities and sells items from his wagon. In his absence, she faithfully runs the Shilling Mercantile, working to keep their business strong as the Depression takes its toll, and caring for their twins.
When a wagon pulls up after supper, Neva and her children rush out—and into the presence of the deputy driving a wagon carrying three young children. The deputy shocks her with the news that Warren and his wife have died, insisting it was their last request that the three children go live with “Aunt Neva.”
Neva’s heart is shattered as she realizes that Warren’s month-long travels were excuses for visits with his secret family. She wants nothing more than to forget Warren, but can she abandon these innocent children to an orphanage? Yet if she takes them in, will she ever be able to see them as more than evidence of her husband’s betrayal and love them the way God does?
I’ve always enjoyed reading Kim Sawyer’s novels. Her novels are so heartwarming,intriguing,and romantic to read and I highly recommend reading her novels.
I was drawn into the first page with Neva’s story. It was amazing as I as a reader went on a an adventure of discovery with the main character, Neva. I was pretty shocked at how the whole story unfolded. I don’t want to spoil it so I’ll let y’all find it. 🙂
In my opinion, I think that the author did a very good job developing the different characters in this novel. The story flowed in a good way which is so hard to find in so many different novels today. I was pretty impressed how different this novel was and I quite enjoyed it. The book cover is pretty as well. I highly recommend this novel! (4 stars)
