Jessica Whitman lives for one hope: reaching her mother's family, the distinguished Hargraves of Baltimore, far from the clutches of her drunken father.
Noah Reardon, bitter over a broken betrothal, wants nothing to do with people. So why is he captivated by the intriguing Jessica? Despite himself, Noah reluctantly offers his protection to this feisty young woman as she undertakes the dangerous overmountain trek.
Together Noah and Jessica discover a shared passion for truth, for integrity, for the very ideals upon which their new nation was founded. Noah is tempted to make the biggest mistake of his life--giving his heart to a woman who doesn't share his faith. Then a shocking discovery about Jessica's family threatens to shatter her hope. As they struggle to understand God's plan, both Noah and Jessica learn who truly offers hope for each tomorrow.
Another wonderful book in this series. Noah agrees to escort Jessica to Baltimore in hopes of finding her mother's family and her brother. Since living in the wilderness with her brute of a father, Jessica knows nothing of proper society. So Noah tries to teach her the proper way to speak, dress, and duties she will need to know before they reach Baltimore. But most of all, he introduces her to the Lord. Before he gives his heart to another, he needs to know she is a believer. Things don't turn out quite like they hoped when they find her family.
