Heart of Gold
I love this book, it was a great read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys some real romance. Book is a Christian romance novel. It is based in a historical type of time period. This book is a great read, in my opinion. Shannon Adair and Matthew Dubois are the main characters in the story and they learn that their own way isn't not always the way God wants them to go.
Mattew's sister Alice is very sick, and when something happens to Alice, Matthew will need to look after her young son Todd. Matthew needs to find himself a wife that can look after Todd, while he continues his work. Shannon has vowed to not fall for him.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
Against Shannon's wishes, love stakes its claim in her heart. Will she discover treasure or treachery?

Matthew wants to return to driving coach for the express company soon—so he'll have to find a wife to look after the boy when he's away.
