She's a beautiful young widow. He's a Southern gentleman with a thirst for adventure. Both need a place to call home.

After losing her husband in the Civil War, Carrie Daly is scared she will never have the family she longs for. Eligible bachelors are scarce in Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, but Carrie has found love. Not the weak-in-the-knees kind, but something practical. Still, she isn't quite ready to set a wedding date with Nate Chastain.

Griff Rutledge is a former member of Charleston society, but has been estranged from his family for years. He's determined to remain unattached, never settling in one place for too long. But when asked to train a Thoroughbred for an upcoming race in Hickory Ridge, he decides to stay awhile.

Despite objections from the townsfolk, and her fear that true happiness has eluded her, Carrie is drawn to Griff's kindness and charm. It will take a leap of faith for them to open their hearts and claim God's promise to give beauty for ashes.

Good Read
4 stars By MichelleB, Mar 21 2012
In the second installment of the Hickory Ridge series by Dorothy Love, we are introduced to Carrie. Carrie is a young woman who has had more than her share of tragedy in her life, with first her parents being killed in an accident and then her husband in the war between the states. When her brother marries a young woman who is difficult and demanding, Carrie decides to step out on her own.

When Carrie befriends Griff, she meets with the consternation of the towns people who seem to think that they have the right to pick and choose who she has a relationship with. They, of course, have just the man in mind - the local bookshop owner, a man who had been unofficially courting Carrie for some time.


A truly enjoyable story with strong and believable characters.
