It all seems precarious since her father's recent death. How was her father keep the financial problems from her and her mother. Her mother's solution to all their problems seems to be Mervin Mosier neighbor and employee and is adamant that Molly must marry Mervin. At first Molly thought this might be a good idea since she has known and liked Mervin since they were children and he loved the business. But could she marry him without love. This all changed when she met Leon Fisher. Now Molly must convince her mother and Mervin that Leon is the man she loves and wishes to spend her life with. But at all cost she must find a way to save the farm and business.
The author wrote of the trials and tribulations that can tear a person's life to pieces. Death brought a family together but also uncovered hidden problems such as financial, health, emotional along with mistrust. All things that can destroy the unity of any family. With God as the center along with hope and faith in His will for their lives they come together ready to face their future.
I loved the sweet patience and understanding Leon Fisher had for Molly and her family. Then there is Molly so dedicated to her families needs. The character of Molly is a wonderful role model for her feisty younger sister Beatrice.
I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading BECOMING BEA, book 4 in this series.

Lonnie and Gideon have a new found love for each other and their new son. The Bennetts have become their family teaching Gideon what family really mea Lonnie and Gideon have a new found love for each other and their new son. The Bennetts have become their family teaching Gideon what family really means when it is centered in Christ. But is it the end of their trials and tribulation? They are about to put this love and faith in each other and God because of a mistake in Gideons past. He is married to someone else which makes his marriage to Lonnie invalid. Will he be able to end the first marriage and make his second bound and legal.
Is it really true out of sight out of mind? Not for Lonnie, she can not stop thinking of Lonnie and the heartache he has caused her, but she must. She is forced to raise her son without his father.
Ever since the preacher, Toby McKee started visiting the Bennett's farm she has noticed the special bond between him and her small son. Does she dare believe she could love again? Her son would have a father! If it were not for the memories of her beloved Gideon and her lack of trust. God's will be done!
The author does not sugar coat life's trials and tribulations. She is putting it in your face that the past does catch-up when you least expect it. It is not particular who it falls upon. Like the old saying, "you can run, but you can't hide." There are harsh lessons to be learned in this story. Does this story make Gideon accountable for his first marriage? You bet it does! You will be wanting to bop him upside his head for the pain he causes so many people. Yet you will end up wanting to comfort him in his exile from Lonnie and his son.
I highly recommend this book.
