Thea Glenheim’s new next door neighbor turns her small town upside down.
Trace Della’s handsome, successful and committed to helping high risk boys.
And he’s changing things in ways a lot of people don’t like.
One in particular.
Bad things begin happening on Trace’s property and troublemakers compete with each other to stop him in his mission to provide a place for kids who need help.
All the while Thea is caught in the middle--between the people she’s known all her life and this new man in town. He’s a mover and shaker. She’s a quiet piano teacher. Yet opposites attract, don’t they?
But when and how will the nastiness end? And will it end before someone gets hurt? Badly?
Welcome to Steadfast, a town whose people
and mysteries you may never forget~
Rafe McKuen, the son of an Osage chief’s daughter and a successful American fur trader turned planter, has one foot in each world. Since childhood, he’s visited his mother’s tribal camp near St. Louis. And at his father’s New Orleans Plantation, he’s the “invisible” but beloved son. Where will he make his home--in which world?
Miss Eve Holcombe is an Eastern beauty with influential relatives. Her father’s unexpected and sudden announcement that they are going West startles Eve and worries her. Why, she asks. But her father has a secret and a plan he won’t reveal. He insists she trust him and what other choice does she have? If she stays in the East, her ambitious aunt will try to marry her off to her aunt’s advantage.
Both Rafe and Eve are on a journey, a Journey to Respect. But such journeys are rarely uncomplicated or without dangers. And falling in love is the most dangerous of all.
