When Pastor Luke McCabe begins paying extra attention to her, Bethany takes his fine-sounding words with a grain of salt. She’s heard sweet talk before. This time she is going to keep her mind on the Lord and on her new teaching job in the Arizona Territory. But when her reputation is accidentally soiled by the rakish town sheriff, Luke steps in with a marriage proposal to save Bethany’s good name. Luke is certain their marriage is God’s will…but Bethany is just as certain God must have someone else in mind to be Luke’s wife. Someone sweet and spiritual, who knows the Scriptures better than Bethany does. Someone like Luke’s old friend from home.
