About The Book: Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts. Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she'd been deceived about her intended groom, she's now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she'll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony-until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy's father. Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony's wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever? Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/1M44A97

My Thoughts On The Book: This was my first book by author Melissa Jagears and I have to say it was an awesome read. I enjoyed reading the book from start to finish. The main characters are well developed and the relationship between Silas and Kate, filled with mistrust, passion, tension, and fear makes the readers feel like they are experiencing these extreme emotions right along with the two. The story line is well developed even though the location changes about halfway through the book and new challenges arise. I highly recommend this book. I cannot wait to get my hands on another book by Jagears.
