Can Enid reconcile with her mother before the ravages of Alzheimer’s claim her?

A HISTORICAL NOVEL OF FINDING HEALING FROM SCARS WITHIN AND WITHOUT

Coming in spring of 2022


Synopsis:

In the early 1900’s quiet and reserved Molly Lund finds refuge from her past at the Nelsons’ farm in Minnesota. In an attempt to turn a new page in her life, Molly works at releasing her losses and coming to terms with the disfiguring burns on her face. 

Samuel Woodson, the Nelsons’ hired hand, carries his own cares. Split from his family and bearing the burden of presumed guilt for an act that haunts him, Samuel–not put off by the scarred side of Molly’s face–draws her out of her self-protective shell. 

Molly and Samuel form a friendship, but just as their hearts lead them deeper, an unexpected guest comes calling, demanding what’s his. 

Will Molly and Samuel find a way to be together, or will they be separated, due to impediments beyond their control? Will they trust in God’s plan or travel down their own paths?  

Readers of historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and Christian historical romance will delight in this beautifully wrought story of the healing power of love.
