Obedience is better than sacrifice…and trumps romance, no matter how sweet.
Profound loneliness propels a childless widow west with the idea of choosing an orphan to share her life. On the way, a fellow traveler takes her by surprise. She never dreams, is unprepared, doesn’t need another man, but can’t get him out of her head…or heart. He’s so perfect—every bit the one she’d searched for as a young woman—except his mistrust of God has erected a wall she cannot breach.
Marcus Ford blames God and struggles for peace after losing his wife and baby. Not once has he considered another woman could be the answer, but the widow is like none other he’s ever met. He falls hard, but plans are taking him east. Hope dashed sends two hearts into the pit. If only Ford could forgive God or the widow ease up on her adamant resolve.
Will God’s mercy shine a beacon in the fog of despair and prove sufficient to heal their souls?
Stepping off the last stair, she approached. He inhaled deeply then shook his head. “Oh my.” He drew in another long breath, closing his eyes. “You smell better than you look. I mean, you look outstanding, but your fragrance is even better. Not that you didn’t smell good before… I mean…” He finally just shrugged. “Your appearance shames me. I should have brought my dress blues.”
She grinned. “I understand, but here.” She handed him her door key. “On my couch, you’ll some new threads…the least Henry Buckmeyer could do.”
At first, he didn’t take it, then scooped it up like a kid in a candy store and took the stairs two at a time.
“I’ll wait on the deck, just outside the dining room.”
He waved one hand but didn’t look back.
Might do the man a bit of good to have his pride pricked. She chuckled, so enjoying the highly pleasant distraction he afforded.
Took the man longer than expected, but the wait was worth it, the readymade suit fit perfect. She loved the shirt’s high collar and how it seemed to choke him.
He grinned then extended his arm. “Thank you.”
She slipped her hand under then over his offering. “You’re welcome.” She glanced down. He’d shined his boots. Per chance that accounted for the extra time.

At Liberty to Love is a Christian historical fiction set in the 1800s. You will find good clean romance in this story. Lots of characters too. This is a part of a series and starting from the beginning would be my recommendation so you will learn more about the characters. My favorite person was probably the young widow, Rebecca. She is set on becoming a mother with adoption. She also may stumble upon love at first sight unexpectedly. Nice read. Disclaimer : I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my honest ones.
