Gideon O'Riley has been given another chance at a life with Lonnie. But will the fight for her heart risk it all over again?
After finally finding love with his sweet bride Lonnie, Gideon's heart was torn when a woman from his past claimed to be his true and rightful wife, forcing him away from his family. God's merciful hand saw Gideon through the heartache, and with Cassie's blessing, he is able to return home. But his journey back through the Blue Ridge Mountains will hold a trial he never anticipated.
Meanwhile, Lonnie determines to seal off her heart from Gideon, convinced he is lost to her forever. Strengthening her resolve to move on is her growing fondness for the handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee--the young reverend she has come to care for deeply. His proposal of marriage offers a bright future for her and her young son.
Yearning to allow joy back into her life, Lonnie must put aside the broken pieces of her heart that still love Gideon. When he returns to find her betrothed to another, he has to place his hope in God, trusting that the One who redeemed their love once can do it again.

"Joanne has hit a home run with her Cadence of Grace series... With memorable characters and struggles aplenty, this is the kind of story that will have readers telling their friends, 'You've got to read these books.'"
--Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author of the Red River of the North series and Wild West Wind series
