In post World-War-I New Jersey, a young widow struggles to provide the best life for her infant daughter while being courted by a small town minister and a rich New York socialite.

I was privileged to be a beta reader of this novel and consider it Margaret Lake's best work.

I enjoyed this book. It's an easy-going read. Liked the characters. I think it's supposed to be based back in the 20's - 40's...you know the era is of days-gone-by, but I couldn't really identify the time frame. Some of the story line is kind of week, but I was able to get past it because I always wanted to know what happened next. The entire story reflects a simpler time, although the plot is about the main character (a young, widowed mother) is torn between two very different men - a modest pastor and a rich cripple (who is also a morphine addict...but she doesn't know that). Cute story.

Historical novel, with romance, family, strong Christian values, and intrigue. This was an excellent book, I would more by this author. It was a quick and easy read, it kept my interest. Strong character development, easy to follow adventures.

Lena Manning is left a widow when her husband is killed in WWII. She is young and pregnant with only her Mother-in-law for family. Unfortunately the news of hers son's death causes a stroke and Lena is the one left to care for her. The day she dies Lena gowes into early hard labor and almost dies giving birt to her child.
The characters feel like real people and the plot holds your attention. This is a well written and very romantic story.

WW1 was a time that brought many changes- men came back horribly injured and traumatized, addicted to the morphine given for the pain- if they came home at all. Enter our heroine widow and pregnant. This young woman comes through hard times and a love triangle that involves a strong man of God and a flawed man who survived WW1 to discover who she really is.

Good story line. Good Characters. A war torn heart is healed with the help of good friends. I will read more of Margaret Lake's books. I liked it because it was clean and a good alternative to the more dramatic, smut filled books that are out there. I am glad Lena made the right decision.

This was supposed to be Christian fiction; one of the contenders for the heroine's heart was a minister, all the characters attended church, most were very careful to observe the proprieties. However, when Lena was torn between two men—a widowed minister with two daughters and a wealthy man injured in the war, she never prayed about the decision. The advice from her former minister's wife was to listen to her heart. The only time I recall reading the word prayer in the book was when Lena said she would pray for her wealthy suitor. If you choose Christian romances simply to avoid explicit language and immoral behavior, this story will satisfy. If you choose Christian romances because you expect a Christian message, this book will disappoint.
