New historical romance set on the Illinois frontier in 1840s:
When loss breaks her heart, can she find the courage to go on?
Your browser may not support display of this image. The Promise of Morning from Ann Shorey takes readers to Beldon Grove on the Illinois frontier in the 1840s. Life isn’t easy here. For Ellie Craig, the graves of her three infant children make it unbearably lonely, despite the love of her husband Matthew. When she uncovers a family secret that suggests she may not be as alone as she thought, Ellie is determined to find the truth.
Meanwhile, Matthew Craig faces controversy in the church he pastors when a man arrives in town claiming to be both a minister and the son of the town's founder. Will Matthew find the courage to reclaim his church? Or will he return to itinerant preaching, leaving Ellie even more alone than before?
Book 2 in the At Home in Beldon Grove series, The Promise of Morning will touch your soul with themes of overcoming tragedy, finding strength to meet daunting challenges, and trusting your heart to love again.

My Thoughts:

First off, I hate coming into a book in the middle of a series! I am one of those women who like to read from the first book to get the whole history! With that being said, this book was awesome! From the moment I opened it, I could not put it down. I felt the heartache of a mother as she buries her children, the suspense as she searches for the truth, and learning to trust and be able to love!

Available March 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
