“For another moment, she watched Hatcher, relaxed looking despite the bounce of the tractor. Yearning filled her soul. She didn’t want a man just to have a man. But she ached to share with someone. Be able to reveal her deepest feelings without fear of ridicule or condemnation. Hatcher, with his quiet patience, had allowed her that if only for brief periods.”
Linda Ford, The Road to Love

“He had no right to even think of loving her, but right now he wanted to let his thoughts drown in the warm depths of her eyes.”
Linda Ford, The Journey Home

“Second Timothy chapter 5, verse 8, stated, “If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
Linda Ford, Forever in My Heart
