From the Inside Flap
She felt her chest tighten. He was so near . . . so wonderfully near. She looked down at the beautiful rug, trying to calm her nerves. "Thank--thank you."
"You're welcome, although I hardly deserve any thanks. But I did speak to Judge Winters today about finding your aunt."
Judith's head snapped up. "You did?"
"Yes. I'm sorry it took me so long to do so."
She forgot all about her weeks of frustration. "Did you learn anything?"
"I'm not sure. I have a lead, but I don't want to say anything until I know something more certain. Will you trust me to see it through?"
She nodded. "I would trust you with anything, Caleb."
He beamed at her. "Then I will learn what I can and tell you as soon as I know something certain. You can count on me. I won't put the matter aside until we find out the truth."
Judith felt overcome with love for him. He had no idea of her thoughts or how he made her feel, but it didn't matter. Caleb Coulter was the man her heart had chosen, and whether anything ever came of it, nothing would alter her feelings for him.|Tracie Peterson is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than 100 novels.
