In 1947 Lily Sanders moved with her family to a homestead at the edge of an Athabaskan village in the Alaskan Territory. It was an ideal location for her father, a mountain man and hunting guide. It also provided a place where the world could not see his brutality.

Seeking her father's love and approval, Lily traipses the mountain trails at his side, learning to bring down big game and to work as a hunting guide. She runs her own trap-lines, faces down wolves and mushes her dog team in local races. A heartless act by her father, leaves Lily brokenhearted and strips away any thread of hope that one day he might love her. She vows to never forgive him and turns to the powerful bond of love she shares with her sweet-spirited mother and her many sisters. Together they share the adventure, beauty and heartache of their wilderness life.

Even a mother's love is not great enough to overcome a deeply rooted bitterness like Lily's. Only the love of God can set her free.

Read an Excerpt

Hannah Talbot has no one. Forced to leave the only home she's ever known, she works for a cruel employer who brutally takes the one thing she has left—her dignity. Defiled and facing the compounded shame of pregnancy, Hannah prays for the child’s death. When an ensuing miscarriage crushes her beneath a burden of guilt and shame, Hannah is certain her sin is too great for even a benevolent God to forgive.

John Bradshaw was a successful businessman whose untamed spirit sometimes wanted more. When he is betrayed by those closest to him, he loses everything—his wife, his business, even his freedom.

Then John and Hannah's paths cross aboard a ghastly, nineteenth-century prison ship en route to Australia. Can they find a way to keep hope alive and learn to trust the encompassing love of a merciful God?

Reader Reviews:

"The best part of this book (besides the delectable romance) was probably the spiritual portion. Hannah had every reason to believe God had abandoned her. She responded like any human would in a similar situation. Of course God never left her, but the journey she took toward that realization was awesome. I loved this story! "--Michelle Sutton, Edgy Inspirational Reviewer

"Bonnie's fans will love cheering for her characters. No protagonists more deserve a happy ending."--Bette Nordberg, author of A Season of Grace

"Hannah's predicament hooked me on the first page and kept me turning pages through the entire book. This may be Bonnie's best book yet."--Jeannie St. John Taylor, author, illustrator, speaker

"Bonnie Leon has masterfully written another moving story full of page-turning excitement. I love her ability to write life onto a page in a way we all can relate to."--Maxine Marsolini, author of Raising Children in Blended Families and Blended Families
