The Shepherd's Betrothal (Heartsong Presents)
HOPE LANG BELIEVES IN LOVE… Not an arranged marriage to a man she's never met. Hope scorns such old-fashioned ideas, until she meets the man she once refused as her groom. Soon she's falling for the rugged yet caring Irishman. Ian McGrae's determined to make a success of his new Florida homestead—not grapple with the woman who rejected him. But when the ownership of his land is disputed, Hope works by his side to uncover the threat. As Ian gets to know Hope, he finds she's his perfect match. And if they can forgive and forget the past, they just might have a future together.
We all make mistakes in judgement it is how we handle it afterwards that helps us grow. For five years Hope remained angry at her parent's decision to betroth her as if they still lived in the old country, not America. Her journey of self discovery should challenge the reader to examine for themselves how they are handling the difficult pills of the past.
Why the author wrote this book:
This is the third book in the St. Augustine series. I loved working with the theme of each of these gals in this setting. Hope's story is one of discontent with her parent's decision to have her betrothed to another. As a result she's let her faith wain. I enjoy the journey Hope when on as she meets the man her parents had betrothed her to and discovers how much she hadn't been listening to the Lord because of her own anger.
