Cora's Deception

(2011)
(The first book in the Brides of Cedar Creek series)
A novel by

 
 
It's 1833 Missouri, but Cora Jackson has no intention of losing herself on a prairie where the nearest neighbor is two miles away. Her city beau, George Merrill, promises to rescue her, and she eagerly watches for him. Then she meets Aaron Stark, a strapping farmer who intrigues her and soon sets her heart pounding. Before long, betrayal, abandonment, and a brush with death shake Cora's beliefs. Although she's changed and can never return to the safe deceptions of her childhood, she still clings to them, wanting to believe what is easier than truth. Love for Aaron grows in the midst of Cora's turmoil, bringing safety and contentment - until George shows up. Aaron Stark falls in love when he first sees Cora emerge from a hollowed sycamore tree after a blizzard, but this girl could never love him. He can't read nor write, and he ain't nothin' but a dirt-poor farmer. Yet, when Cora seems to warm to Aaron, her old beau steps between them with convincing words. How's a feller supposed to know what to believe when everything points against him? Lies - easier to believe than truth.
