ABOUT THE BOOK

Can runaway Libby Cantrell finally get a new start?

Libby Cantrell’s life has gone from bad to worse since her mother’s death. After working in a brothel to support her abusive father, she sees no hope for her future until one cold winter night when she finds the courage to escape.

When she collapses in Portersfield, Texas, exhausted, ill, and hungry, Sheriff Cory Muldoon finds her and takes her to the doctor. Against Cory’s better judgment, Seth and Erin Winston take her in and offer her a job as a nanny for their young son. As a minister, Seth sees it as his duty to take care of her. As a deputy, Cory needs to know the truth about her even as he is attracted to the waif of a young woman.

As Cory’s feelings for her grow and winter becomes spring, will he be able to accept her as she is now and truly forget and forgive her sordid past?

MY REVIEW:
I love reading Clean fiction books with real-life issues.  I would not recommend this story for anyone younger than 16 due to the nature of the subjects discussed in the story, but it is well-worth reading for mature readers.  Even so, it is still a Clean Christian fiction novel. 
I love the main character Libby.  She intrigued me from the beginning.  To go through all that she had to endure, and come out strong and resilient, drew my interested right away.  I wanted to see her have her "happy ending" after all the negative things that occurred in her life.  The ending was worth it for me, and the emotions and reactions that Cory went through were realistic enough to keep my interest.
I have not read any other books by author Martha Rogers, but I look forward to reading more in the near future! A great book for any fiction lover!
