Synopsis: Gideon O’Riley has been given another chance at a life with Lonnie. But will the fight for her heart risk it all over again?

After finally finding love with his sweet bride Lonnie, Gideon’s heart was torn when a woman from his past claimed to be his true and rightful wife, forcing him away from his family. God’s merciful hand saw Gideon through the heartache, and with Cassie’s blessing, he is able to return home. But his journey back through the Blue Ridge Mountains will hold a trial he never anticipated.

Meanwhile, Lonnie determines to seal off her heart from Gideon, convinced he is lost to her forever. Strengthening her resolve to move on is her growing fondness for the handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee—the young reverend she has come to care for deeply. His proposal of marriage offers a bright future for her and her young son.

Yearning to allow joy back into her life, Lonnie must put aside the broken pieces of her heart that still love Gideon. When he returns to find her betrothed to another, he has to place his hope in God, trusting that the One who redeemed their love once can do it again.

My Thoughts:
I thought this book was in the middle. I liked it. I think I would understand it a little bit more if I read the second book before this one. I think it would make sense a bit more. It still good with out reading the second book in this series. I will let you decide for yourselves.

The book focus on Gideon and find the faith. Lonnie need to learn to deal with her own problems as does Gideon. You also see a friendship and others in on it. I do not want to give anything away so I will leave it here.

Synopsis:
Night’s chill tickled her skin. Lonnie pressed her hands together and glanced up. He was even more handsome up close. Having grown up the shy, awkward daughter of Joel Sawyer, she’d hardly spoken to any boy, let alone the one who had mothers whispering warnings in their daughter’s ears and fathers loading shotguns.

Pretty Lonnie Sawyer is shy and innocent, used to fading into the background within her family, and among the creeks and hollows of the Appalachian hills. Though her family is poor and her father abusive, she clings to a quiet faith. But when handsome ladies’ man and bluegrass musician Gideon O’Riley steals a kiss, that one action seals her fate.

Her father forces her into a hasty marriage with Gideon—a man she barely knows and does not love. Equally frustrated and confused by his new responsibilities, Gideon yearns for a fresh start, forcing Lonnie on an arduous journey away from her home in Rocky Knob.

Her distant groom can’t seem to surrender his rage at the injustice of the forced matrimony or give Lonnie any claim in his life. What will it take for Gideon to give up his past, embrace Lonnie’s God, and discover a hope that can heal their two fractured hearts?

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book to point I could not put it down. I can tell you I had some bad feeling for Lonnie along with Gideon. Lonnie thinks that Gideon is a lot like her father in terms with the whiskey and believe it or not she doe not learn to listen to Gideon in terms if he was telling the true about him coming home when he went off to pay a debt.

Gideon was somewhat like Lonnie father in terms with whiskey but doe change for the family he  is got. Can he really change for the love of Lonnie or does he move on.

Find out by picking this book up and reading it. The Author put some really good issues in the book and Can Lonnie learn to trust or does her mistake ruin it for her and her son.
