About the Books
A new year brings new challenges … and the chance to make a dream come true. Melinda Foster hoped to spend January relaxing by her farmhouse’s fireplace while paging through the seed catalogs’ promises of spring. After all, wasn’t the simpler, slower pace of the country one of the reasons she let go of her bustling life in the city? Instead, she finds herself struggling to keep the worst of winter’s threats from her door. Shoveling snow, thawing her farm’s water lines, and anxiously watching over the pregnant sheep in her barn fill her shorter days and longer nights. She pushes on because Horace’s offer still stands: He’ll sell her the farm in the spring if she still wants to stay. But as winter tightens its grip on rural Iowa, her biggest challenges are still to come. When a series of events threatens to break her heart and shatter her hopes, will Melinda’s faith be strong enough to see the season through?
