After spending nine years as a missionary in Africa and losing his wife to illness, Joshua Norton is exhausted, emotionally and physically. He returns home to the frontier Montana town of Sweetwater Springs with his estranged nine-year-old son in tow, hoping to rebuild his relationship with the boy.
Meanwhile, New Orleans resident Delia Fortier plots to escape the terrible fate her mother has planned for her: becoming the mistress of a cruel, powerful politician. The mixed-race secret daughter of a wealthy Creole businessman, Delia boldly seeks help from her father’s family. Although the rest of the family spurns her, her father is delighted to learn of Delia’s existence and offers her an opportunity: travel west with him, pretending to be his legitimate daughter.
When Joshua and Delia meet, their intense attraction is undeniable. But will Delia’s secret stand in the way of their love? Or will prejudice destroy their future… and their lives?

New Beginnings Happen!
I really like Deila and the way that she tried to live even though she had a secret that was not her fault.
After being gone for years and losing his wife Joshua returns to America with his son. Life is not easy though since his in-laws want to take over the raising of his son as well as Joshua's future plans. He cannot have either thing happen, so he takes his son and returns to his childhood home, Sweetwater Springs, Montana. On the train home, he runs into a beautiful woman and her father who are both running away to Montana for their own reasons. Sweetwater Springs has become a town where people who need a new begin can sometimes find them there. Can Joshua and Deila find their new beginning or will too many secrets tear apart any hopes and dreams they may have?
This book captured the emotions of fear, grief,disappointment, hope, joy, and love very well. Debra does it again! It was wonderful to read about a missionary returning to America since I have done the same thing. The book captured return culture shock very well and how difficult it is to live with a heart that is divided between two cultures. I loved the way that each character complimented and challenged each other. I cannot wait for the next book!
