Wildflower Bride by Mary Connealy
The story for this book starts in book 2 (The Husband Tree) and while I have no doubt you could figure things out if you start with this one, it is a much more enjoyable if you read book 1 and 2 first.
Wade Sawyer is a changed man. Years of being bullied and abused by his powerful father took its toil and he was on his way to being as evil as his Pa. That is until God got hold of his heart and made him a new creation. So now Wade faces a dilemma. His father has been hurt.. bed ridden.. and he has sent for Wade to come run the ranch while he mends. Should Wade go or should he avoid the man who has caused him so much pain?
Add to that, Wade is travelling with a white woman who was reared by Native Americas after the death of her parents and is now, once again, alone as her camp has been raided and destroyed. How will Wade's father react to her, Abby, and she to him.
There is only one way to find out and so Wade and Abby head for home.
What Wade fines there is far from what he expected. His father still as angry and venomous as ever, but also dejected and broken. Hired hands with no skill in their hands and no good in their minds. Danger... treachery.. deceit.. and Wade is determined to get to the bottom of it.
As he does, Abby fights to find her way in this strange new world and wrestles with the feelings she has for Wade.
God has done so much in Wade's life... more than he deserved.. dare he ask for a few more miracles to come his way?
