"The harsh life of the Oregon Territory took Mitchel Banning's wife from him, but it hasn't touched his faith. The widower still dreams of building his mission into a shining light on the frontier - for himself and his daughter, Hope. But the work is too much for one man to handle. Could a Philadelphia lady be the answers to his prayers? After losing her family, Anne Simm's only wish is to keep busy - and guard her affections closely. Anne devotes her energy to Mitchel Banning's mission ... but she keeps her distance from Mitch and Hope. Only Mitchel can show her the joy of a second chance - a new beginning and a new family, together" -- Cover verso.

When Anne first arrives at the mission - she disappoints Mitchel. He had been expecting her brother to come instead of her. He doesn't need a woman in the mission because it is dangerous due to the Indians. Mitchel decides that she can stay and teach in her brother Williams' place. Anne has lost her husband and daughter in a carriage accident. Mitchel has lost his wife and has a 2 year old to look after. Anne can't bear to be around Mitchel's daughter. His daughter is bedridden and sick. As time goes on Anne continues to try to keep her distance from Mitchel and his daughter. But as she keeps hearing the little girl crying out in pain will she continue to keep her distance? I found the book very interesting and a page turner. Not necessarily very full of romance but still a good book.
