A brief summary from Maggie Brendan:
All her life widow Grace Bidwell has longed for a loving husband and children but now chances are looking slim and prospects low as she cares for her elderly father and struggles to maintain the chores on the farm…until she places an ad for a hired hand. Robert Frasier arrives with three pitiful bedraggled children and nothing but the clothes on their backs and a wagon, applying for the job…along with a load of hurt, pride and anger. 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.
Grace Bidwell flat-out refuses to let the sorrows of her life triumph over the future. Recently widowed with a potato farm in need of resurrection, and an ailing father to take care of, Grace will need all the gumption she can muster up if she’s going to attain her goal of succeeding. But needing help, Grace places an ad for a hired hand and when a bedraggled man, Robert Frasier, shows up looking for work, she hires him on a trial run, trusting her instincts.
Quiet, determined Robert has more secrets hiding behind those gorgeous eyes of his than he lets on. To include three children to provide for. Angry and hurt from his past, Robert closes himself off to any chance at love again. Except…he finds his armor being broken down by Grace’s joy. When a sudden threat present itself, will Robert and Grace be able to trust one another and move forward with their lives?
Maggie Brendan’s sweet tale Trusting Grace is utterly endearing! Readers will find themselves captured by the notes of grace, redemption, and love sweeping throughout these pages. I love how the children play such an important role in this book and their characters shine through. I also loved how Grace takes care of her ailing father with such love and compassion. She is truly a caretaker warrior! I recommend grabbing a copy of Trusting Grace for yourself to read!
