Beth MacKay, the daughter of Culdee Creek's owner, returns home after completing medical school to take over the aging Doc Childress's practice. Reluctantly, her life and heart become entwined with that of Grand View's Episcopalian priest, Noah Starr. But Noah struggles with his faith and calling since his wife died and his daughter, Emily, was disabled with cerebral palsy.

When Beth becomes embroiled in a spousal abuse case between two of Noah's parishioners, she encourages the battered woman to leave her husband for her own safety. Noah cautions the woman to try to work things out, and when the abuse ends in tragedy, it's the last straw for the already-doubtful priest.

Can Beth's love help Noah find his way back to the life and calling God has always intended for him?

Reader Reviews:

"Anyone who reads this book is in for a special blessing! Kathleen Morgan goes past "happy ever after" to the reality of human nature and the relationship of each of us to God, as well as (to) each other." -An Amazon.com reader

"Fans of the Culdee Creek series will be delighted with this final offering. Ms. Morgan is a powerful voice in the world of Inspirational Romance, and I am thrilled she shares her stories with her readers!" -The Romance Reader's Collection

"For the most part this is a sweet story, but there are moments that keep it from falling into the traditional traps associated with inspirationals. Beth must confront a shameful secret and forbidden desire. There is lust and murder. Moreover, though, there is great faith, made all the more real by the struggles of sinners, not lily white, cardboard saints. Seeing these people feel abandoned by God and handle temptation in crisis, seeing doing the right thing turn out horribly wrong, gives this book an element of reality that makes it easier for the modern reader to relate to." -Romance At It's Best

Reader Reviews:

"The whole MacKay family spring to three-dimensional life in this novel and the reader cares what happens to them; many romances exaggerate the characters too much to make them seem superhuman, but Morgan's people are as realistic in this book as in all her novels. A thought-provoking and enjoyable read from this prolific and varied author." -Rachel Hyde, Myshelf.com

"With each new volume, Ms. Morgan adds depth to the MacKay family that will please readers who have stuck with the series from volume one." -The Romance Readers Connection

Even though her name means "grace", Hannah Cutler struggles to accept true mercy and love—especially from Devlin MacKay, the only man who remembers her past as well as she does.

This sequel to Daughter of Joy weaves an honest, emotive tale of one woman's struggle to accept redeeming love. Hannah Cutler, a former prostitute, is trying to begin her life anew. But she struggles with the notion of being loved, even by the Lord of love whom she recently accepted as her Savior.

Devlin MacKay adds to Hannah's feelings of shame by unjustly blaming her for his own guilty past. But as Hannah becomes a Woman of Grace, Devlin is forced to confront his feelings for her and toward the God who has transformed her life.

Thank you, Ms. Morgan, for such a memorable read." -Robin Lee Hatcher, author of The Forgiving Hour
