Good, clean fiction: fiction that appeals to all ages, and is appropriate for all ages to read. Dealing with modern life and all its issues in the context of Christian morality, its editorial focus is well-written, compelling, and entertaining fiction with a moral message.

Adam Burke is a young, successful Philadelphia lawyer. Then, following the traumatic breakup of his engagement, he accidentally kills a woman with his horse and carriage. Adam runs away to begin a new life in Nebraska, and his heartbreaking memories begin to fade -- especially after he places an ad for a mail order bride. But Rachel Mason's arrival brings complications Adam didn't bargain for. Can he and Rachel find forgiveness for a seemingly unpardonable sin? Are they willing to shed their bitterness and renew their love ... before their lives are destroyed?
