Love Versus Responsibility

*Photo courtesy of

This a well crafted story about a young girl who is trying to find love in Texas in the 1800s. Molly is deeply in love with her beau Bailey, but is torn between doing what she wants with the rest of her life versus what she feels is her duty to her family. Her parents put immense pressure on her to 'marry up' to a wealthy man who can care for her and, in turn, her family.

When a tall, dark and handsome stranger appears in town he seems to be the answer to all of her troubles. Edward seems quite taken with her and makes his intentions clear very quickly. Molly has to decide if it is worth sacrificing her happiness for the betterment of her family. She makes a hasty decision that threatens to ruin her life forever.

I feel the book was well written, with several twists that made it hard for me to put down. As the story develops you can really connect with Molly. I felt heartache for her and what she has to cope with. This is a wonderful story about grace, redemption and forgiveness. In the end, love conquers all!

Thanks to Bethany House publishers who sent me a free copy. It is not required that I give a positive review, but to express my own opinions of this book.
