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. Though 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 the fondness she has for the
handsome Scotsman, Toby McKee—the young reverend she has come to care
deeply for. 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.
