Can love unlock two guarded hearts? Tucker Mills, Massachusetts, 1839. Bound as an indentured servant to the Tucker Mills bank and its controlling manager, Reese Thackery finds comfort in her faith and her friends. She vows to serve her remaining two years with a willing heart. But that's before bank owner Conner Kingsley—all six-foot-six of him—rides into town to audit the bank's business dealings. Thinking that things are finally looking up, Reese starts her work at the Kingsley family manor, but recoils from Conner's imposing physical presence, haunted by memories of another master. Not even Conner's soft voice and kind gestures can comfort her. When the bank manager turns vengeful, Conner and Reese must become allies. Can Reese see beyond her place as a servant to accept God's larger plan for her future and her heart? A tender story of the power of faith over fear and the tie that truly binds.

    " I love Lori Wick and really appreciate how she brings together two people who have a rough history, but discover they need each other. I appreciate even more that these characters are not as "standard" as hers tend to be -- Reese is fun, and I love Conner's dry humor. "

    " The story line was interesting and keeps the attention, but too preachy. I prefer a more subtle approach to teaching lessons. I learned it is alright to grieve, hurt, and mourn for a while, but then we need to forgive, put the past behind us and move ahead to the future. "
