Once a debutante, Leanna McKee threw away her inheritance to marry Jack, a coal miner who encouraged her to pursue her education dream. A mining accident and his gambling addiction left her poor, widowed, and desperate to start anew elsewhere. A tutoring opportunity offers a way out, but she’s torn between taking it and staying put.

Alex Pappas has been bitter, guilt-ridden, and angry with God since his wife’s death. Now against marriage, his heart is reawakening through Leanna. But their growing friendship is risky. Cultural boundaries, ignorance, and prejudice toward Greeks abound; and Greek tradition is pushing him toward an unwanted prearranged marriage.

Dicken’s book reveals insights into cultural issues and prejudice through a simple, enjoyable, twists-and-turns storyline of love, family, second chances, and God’s grace and faithfulness. Recommend to historical Christian romance fiction fans.
