Believing this is divine intervention in her life, Grace welcomes them with open arms. As feelings grow between her and Robert, Grace will have to convince him that she is a woman who can be trusted with his heart.
Get swept away into Montana's lush Gallatin Valley, nestled among towering mountains and proud pines, in this emotional story.
