About the Author
Shawna's writing journey started with a dream --- an actual, nighttime dream. The story within her dream captivated her to the point that she became obsessive, and in order to put together all the little details and fill in the gaps, she had to write it down. Now she has two books based upon it. Shawna is an Inspirational Romance writer, who loves creating complex, flawed characters, believing that's the secret to making them real. And as an inspirational author, she is able to write about God's Grace through her characters' humanity. She also loves including a good dose of nostalgia in her work, which is why her stories tend to take place in small towns during the first half of the 20th century. When she's not writing, she's spends her time with her husband and three children, reads, makes jewelry, and enjoys life on her family's ranch.

Ms. Williams' novels are often considered "edgy" because she writes about real life. Even so, her books are very tastefully done even though she sometimes approaches situations that are gritty and true to life. In my opinion, this novel was woven through with the theme of trust. When people keep secrets, are they really who they seem to be? Are they hiding behind a smoke screen? When people don't trust others, they often miss out on some of the greatest blessings in life.
The hero and heroine in this novel couldn't be more different. The hero grew up in a mansion, raised by upper society. The heroine grew up poor and destitute, from a family with a less than stellar reputation. She stives to keep her past a secret, which leads to anxiety-laden situations.
I don't want to say much more for fear of giving away Ms. Williams' plot. If you choose to give this one a try, you won't be disappointed. It's part of a series, but if you've not read the others, it can be read and easily understood.
From the very first pages, I was pulled into the lives of two very different people filled with the same negative, distrustful outlook on life. It is a wonderful love story with just a little bit of mystery and a whole lot of grace, mercy and redemption. I really enjoyed how the author brought those themes forward and threaded God's redemptive story through the story of an attorney named Roger and a waitress named Pennye. The forgiveness and acceptance shown in this book is what we all should strive for in our daily lives. Again, very well-written -- I highly recommend it!
