Remington Jenkins is back and Martin's Crossing will never be the same. At least not for Samantha Martin.
Her teenage crush is all grown-up, and she's realizing the full-time rancher, part-time preacher, still holds her heart. Back then, Rem planned to marry her—until her overprotective brothers sent her away.
If he can brave her formidable family, Rem's finally got a shot with the pretty nurse.
But first, Sam has a secret that she must share before they can turn their summer romance into a winter wedding…
A heartfelt story about faith, hope, love, and forgiveness.
There's so much sorrow, anger, disappointment and loneliness in Sam. She has felt her whole life, that people leave, or sent her away, they are not there to stay, to love, to be trusted. And for good reasons.
Remington only really loved one girl, but her family, brothers, made sure they didn't have a future together. Now, ten years later, if they can forgive each other, their families, and leave the past behind, will they really have a second chance at the forever kind of love?
So much heart, love, and trust is needed, to open up your mind, trust again after your heart has been shattered, and to forgive. Sam is struggling to find her place with her family, to see if she could finally fit in.
Remington is willing to do anything to have Sam in his life again, more as a friend.
And if the heart break between Remington and Sam doesn't bring you to tears, their efforts to help the little kids at the hospital surely will.
The story isn't just about pain, hurt, love, and forgiveness, meddling brothers, and teenage crushes turning into love. It is also about hope for a better tomorrow, and about faith that God will guide you through anything, and trust that it will happen.
