Burned by the fire that killed her parents, now rejected by her husband to be.
Elizabeth is proud and brave and yet it feels like her life is over. After losing her parents in the fire that left her badly scarred she has no marriage prospects and has had to abandon the job that was her life. How can she face people looking so hideous?
But there is hope… a matrimonial advertisement caught her eye. Six months later she is on a train West. There is only one thing on her mind. Why didn’t she tell her husband to be about her scars?
When Elizabeth first sees Garrett Gentry her legs go weak. He is magnificent, but the look of disgust on his face and the beautiful woman on his arm do not bode well for her chances of marriage.
Can this strong, brace, and still beautiful woman see past her scars and find love?
Will Garrett let a sly woman lead him astray or will he remember the letters he and Elizabeth shared?
When a baby is about to be born and the midwife is away who will come to the rescue?
