Amelia Williams is only a humble farmer’s daughter, so her move from the Shenandoah Valley to stay with her grandparents in the big city of Richmond, Virginia opens a host of new opportunities. 1868 is shaping up to be her best year ever, especially when her new friendship with the genteel Bryon Preston grows into more. But when his mother catches wind of their courtship, Amelia learns the hard lesson that her humble roots will never be enough for the future Preston heir. Love might not see boundaries between the aristocrat and the pauper, but the high society of Richmond surely do.
Reeling from the pain of half-truths and broken promises, Amelia packs her heart away. Life will be much safer if she pours her focus into nursing. Yet, like a beautiful tapestry, God weaves Bryon back into her life. When her nursing duties bring her face to face with the pain of her past, is it too late to stitch the threads of trust and love back together?
"I thoroughly enjoyed this second book of the Shenandoah series. Blossom is an exceptional writer, and her stories do not disappoint... There are some difficult, heart-wrenching, emotional scenes, but ones that are necessary to the message Blossom wants to portray. All in all this book takes you on a journey of love, loss, adventure, new life changes, forgiveness, and much more... This is very well written, and I will be sure to read all of Blossom’s future books."
"Another amazing read from author Blossom Turner. She is quickly easing her way to my very favorite authors list."
"Oh, wow! What a fantastic story from Blossom Turner! Amelia and Bryon’s story pulled me right in and didn’t want me to stop! It was always just one more chapter. I stayed up way too late..."
