Ellie Craig grieves the loss of three infant children, and when long-hidden secrets are brought to light, she must find a way to contact the family of her long-lost father. Meanwhile her husband, Matthew, faces controversy in his church and competition from a new arrival in Beldon Grove, who claims to be both a minister and the son of the town’s founder. Will Matthew find the courage to reclaim his church? And will his unexpected travel companion help Ellie’s heart mend?
Ann Shorey’s second At Home in Beldon Grove novel again delves deeply into grief, shattered hopes and lives driven by insecurity and fear. Don’t expect a sweet prairie romance with The Promise of Morning as realism is the driving force in this series. Based loosely on the author’s own great-great grandparents, Ellie and Matthew’s painful journey through the loss of three of their children and the destructive force of a stranger determined to insinuate himself upon their marriage and Matthew’s pastorate, is thought provoking and emotional. Readers wanting real insight into the struggle that was living in the 1840s, Ann Shorey’s books will be more than satisfying.
