    She's making a new start in a new community but the people seem stand-offish.  She wants to find out why but when she does, she'll wish she hadn't.

    Avon Inspire and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 7th.

    Susanna hears gunshots while she's on her trip home and tries to hurry her horse along.  One of the shots comes too close, and she's thrown off the carriage.  She almost dies from the exposure, but a man shows up and saves her.  She thinks it was an accident but all of a sudden the family seems to be having a lot of them...

    They purchased a farm from a family that was forced to sell.  That's why the community isn't sure about them.  The worst part?  Her savior was the son of the farmer that had to sell and he wants nothing to do with her when he hears her last name.  She's sad but she also knows it's not her family's fault.

    Both of them have some growing up to do.  Neil learns some things about his father that he didn't know.  Susanna is busy trying to keep her family safe.  There's one more crisis that happens on Christmas day and it makes their Christmas bittersweet.  But there's hope for the future.
