The church was empty when I dragged myself out of the pew and headed out the door. As I opened the door, the corner of my eye caught a flicker of movement which I chose to ignore. I walked down the steps and was nearly bowled over by two wild boys. With arms grown strong and quick from man-handling two brothers growing up, I grabbed the two boys before they had a chance to escape me.
Anna Stuart is comfortable with her life. She may be a 30 year old spinster, but she has her routine and enjoys taking care of her father and older brother. One letter shatters all her routines, comfort, and enjoyment. After learning of her brother’s death, Anna feels like her life will never be the same again.
Then she meets two motherless boys. Did God place them in her life to lead her to a new vision of life? Can she trust God to give her the desires of her heart before she even knows what they are?
(Exciting, yes? And now for the cover!)
(I love her covers!)

And lastly, Faith has sent in a sneak peak!
Time passed slowly for me. The next few months were the hardest months of my life. Dealing with Jed's death, trying to allow God to have complete control of my life, being an example to my brother and father. All of it was hard. My work was monotonous and dreary. I tried to find joy in everything I did, but sometimes it was nearly impossible. When it got too bad, I would stop what I was doing and go visit Wilma.
Wilma was such a good friend. She visited me at least once a week, and I tried to do the same. At church, I almost always ended up talking to her—when I could get away from James and John. James and John were what kept me going to church each week. Except for James, John, Hester, the butcher’s wife, and Wilma and her husband, no one else had attempted to reach out to me or talk to me. When I tried to talk to them, they would chat for a little and then make some excuse to go find someone else. James, John, Wilma, and Pastor Jenkins' sermons kept me sane during those first few months as a genuine Christian.
One sunny, cool, early Summer Sunday, God took me in a direction I never would have dreamt possible. Pastor Jenkins' sermon hit me right between the eyes. He'd preached about being a living example for others and as he preached about ways to do so, I realized I had been failing in that area. When the service was over, I sat in the pew extra long. Between the sermon and knowing Caleb and Da both resented the time I spent at church, I didn't want to leave the peaceful, quiet sanctuary.
(TADA! Now I am going to go so I can post this before it gets any later.)
