Ms. Knipfer draws a hurting heroine in Molly and shows that she can overcome in spite of what life throws at her. Molly finds comfort in the friendship of Mable, Linc and Samuel. This is a story of flawed human beings and the choices, good and bad, that they are faced with.
Underlying their whole lives is a faith that they rely on to answer difficult questions and help in impossible situations.
This one was a bit darker than previous books by this author. She handled some touchy topics and depicted real spiritual struggles.

A HISTORICAL NOVEL OF FINDING HEALING AND A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE
In the early 1900s, quiet and reserved Molly Lund finds refuge from her past at the Nelsons’ farm in Minnesota. In an attempt to turn a new page in her life, Molly works at making peace with her losses and coming to terms with the disfiguring burns on her face.
Samuel Woodson, the Nelsons’ hired hand, carries his own cares. Split from his family and bearing a burden of misplaced guilt for an act that haunts him, Samuel–seeing past Molly’s scars–draws her out of her self-protective shell.
Molly and Samuel form a friendship, but just as their hearts lead them deeper, an unexpected guest comes calling, demanding what’s his.
Will Molly and Samuel find a way to be together or will they be separated, due to impediments beyond their control? Can they trust in God’s plan and travel a path that heals the hurts of the past?
Readers of historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and Christian historical romance will delight in this beautifully wrought story of the healing power of love.
