A New Historical Romance from Fan-Favorite Jody Hedlund
Recently widowed Annalisa Werner has the feeling her husband
was murdered but can't prove it. Alone with her young
daughter in 1881 Michigan, she has six months left to finish
raising the money needed to pay back the land contract her
husband purchased, and the land is difficult to toil by
herself. She needs a husband. With unmarried men scarce, her
father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country,
asking him to find Annalisa a groom.
For nobleman Carl von Reichart, the blade of the guillotine
is his fate. He's been accused and convicted of a serious
crime he didn't commit, and his only escape is to flee to a
small German community in Michigan where he'll be safe. He
secures a job on Annalisa's farm but bumbles through
learning about farming and manual labor.
Annalisa senses that Carl is harboring a secret about his
past, yet she finds herself drawn to him anyway. He's
gentle, kind, and romantic--unlike any of the men she's ever
known. He begins to restore her faith in the ability to
love--but her true groom is still on his way. And time is
running out on them all.
