About the Book
After a whiskey still explosion destroys her home and nearly her life, Rebecca Packwood and her father must leave Missouri and her dear friends behind. After crossing The Oregon Trail, she sets out to discover her family’s secret history and to forge a home and community out of the raw farm land of Eagle Creek, Oregon Country, never suspecting a ruthless enemy is seeking to thwart her plans.
Hard-working banker’s son, Clark Sutherland, thought the toughest test he would face was getting out from underneath his father’s thumb. The last thing he expected was to be penniless, homeless, and smitten with a shy, dark-eyed stranger. With nothing to offer her, will he find a way to support himself and still pursue his dreams before they’re pulled apart?
When a man in shadows sets his eyes on their coveted prize, danger descends. Rebecca and Clark must act to protect the desires of their hearts before harm befalls them all. Will they learn to trust their future to the God who heals and sets the lonely in families?
About the Author
Cara Grandle is an author of inspirational historical romance novels set in 1800s Oregon Territory. Her latest novels, The Ribbon and The Rock, are adventurous western romance. She loves to weave heartwarming tales where the underdog overcomes. Cara has interview and podcast experience. She is also an acquisitions editor and publicist for WhiteFire Publishing.
Cara Grandle has written an intriguing and sad story in her second book in the Sisters of the Porcelain Doll series. This story was a little bit harder to get into and it seemed to be focused more on the story of the woman than the romance, making it feel more like a historical women’s fiction, rather than a historical romance. The first half of the story is focused on a young woman and her first husband, while the second half of the story is about finding herself and getting a second chance at romance. Although a bit slow, if readers push through, they will enjoy the story.
