Spring Hope by Martha Rogers

Libby Cantrell’s life has gone from bad to worse since her mother’s death. After working in a brothel to support her abusive father, she sees no hope for her future until one cold winter night when she finds the courage to escape.

When she collapses in Portersfield, Texas, exhausted, ill, and hungry, Sheriff Cory Muldoon finds her and takes her to the doctor. Against Cory’s better judgment, Seth and Erin Winston take her in and offer her a job as a nanny for their young son. As a minister, Seth sees it as his duty to take care of her. As a deputy, Cory needs to know the truth about her even as he is attracted to the waif of a young woman.

As Cory’s feelings for her grow and winter becomes spring, will he be able to accept her as she is now and truly forget and forgive her sordid past?

My thoughts...

People can learn a lot from the townspeople of Porterfield, I admired their faith in God and their love of people. The main characters, Libby and Cory,
quickly work their way into your heart though Cory can be quite stubborn and has a problem with judging others.

Libby is running from her past, scared to death others will find out what she has been forced to do at the hand of her father. Cory is sure he knows what kind of woman she is... no better than a saloon girl. As they get to know each other both of them grow in their faith and learn lessons they will never forget.

Great book, loved the characters, the storyline was wonderful. 5 out of 5 stars from me!

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
