Raelene Strattford believes God has forsaken her, but her neighbor proves just the opposite while giving her a voice in a world where women have none.

This short, easy to read romance is Book 1 of a trilogy called Delaware Brides. Raelene is left alone as a 17 year old when both parents are killed in a buggy accident. Her father's will states she w

The first in a series this one is also the best. Raelene Strattford finds herself a young woman alone in a new country with a farm to run. Gustaf Hanssen made a promise to her dying father to help her. Raelene resents his help as well as his insistence that she needs to turn back to God. A good story with interesting and believable growth of both characters. I highly recommend this one.
