Brock hides his wealth from Sarah as a guarantee that she'll love him for himself and not his money. Not only does she accept him as a simple bank teller, she prefers a simpler life. Trouble finds her while she is remodeling the old farmhouse, and the bank robbers return, thinking she's Elaina. Just when everyone thought the couple's love would last forever, she discovers shocking news about Brock that sets her packing and moving in with Elaina and Pete. Brock has to accomplish two things: get his wife back, and convert her to becoming a Christian.

This was a clean and (non-preachy!) Christian book, with a wholesome story of faith, strength and forgiveness.
Although I wanted to hit Brock and sometimes Sarah on the head with a saucepan for being so obtuse at times, I really liked how the story turned out and how they overcame their difficulties. Love is faithfulness, giving, and... compromise! I just wish people wouldn't jump to conclusions like it happened in the story, but it also happens in real life.
As for Reagan Boss's narration, it was pleasant and fitting, I really enjoyed the soothing quality of her voice. I removed a star because - though I'm not sure whether this is a narration or an editing issue - I felt some sentences ran into others. At times a new scene/chapter started without any pause as an indication, so it irked me a little that some characters appeared to teleport or appear out of nowhere!
I asked the author for a free copy of the story in exchange for a review, and I was happily surprised! Barbara Gross writes stories that are usually shorter than others, but that's because she doesn't spend time on nonsense. It's very nice to start and finish a book in the same day, even though I miss the characters a little when it ends.
