A young woman with a reputation, a pastor being pressured to marry, a marriage that might destroy them both.
Nineteen-year-old Autumn Reed has lost everything -- her parents, her home and her reputation. When she is offered an opportunity to start over in Sulphur Springs, Montana, she jumps at the chance.
Pastor Eli Barnes is pressured to get married by his congregation. He has no intention of marrying any of the local women in town, so he sends a letter to his brother asking Jacob to find him a proxy bride. When Autumn arrives, she doesn't meet any of the criteria Eli requested. Her flaming red hair and fiery temper make him rethink the marriage; plus, she is fourteen years younger than him!
Autumn is convinced she exchanged one type of prison for another. She can deal with the taunts and gossip from the townspeople, but not the rejection from her new husband.
Can Autumn heal the thoughts of abandonment and embrace the new life in front of her? Can Eli see past the surface and realize that Autumn really is a gift from God?
