If you like the novels of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie’s inspirational romance set against the backdrop of World War One!

Even at a young age, Ada Thorne knew that she would marry only for love, never money. So when she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Ned Henley, the lowly gamekeeper on a neighboring estate, she defies her parents and society by eloping with him to London to build a new life.

Without her family’s support, life in the city is far more difficult than the one of ease and privilege Ada has always known. She’ll find herself relentlessly tested in ways she never imagined—especially when Ned, answering the call of duty, enlists to serve his country in World War One.

Alone and near poverty with a child to raise, Ada’s resolve will be strained at every turn. And as she struggles to remain true to her convictions and live life on her own terms, Ada will embark on a journey of courage, faith, and love that will surpass even her own humble dreams . . .

~ Excerpt ~ 

“I think you’re braver than you know.”

With a sigh, Ada returned to her seat. Minnie did the same. “I don’t feel brave. I keep praying for peace and courage, but I don’t think anyone is listening.”

“’E is.”

“How do you know?” Ada countered, hurt and yearning giving her tone a slight edge.

Minnie gave her a gentle look. “Because ’E made us friends, Ada, knowing we’d need each other as we ’ave. And because ’E hears and loves us, ’specially in the dark times when we don’t know if’n anyone is listening.”

As she considered Minnie’s confident assurances, something loosened inside Ada. The hardness fractured and slipped away from her heart—leaving it still sore with grief but also open and pliant.

“I find God often ’elps us through others,” Minnie said. “And ’E also turns our ashes into beauty.”

“Ashes into beauty?” Ada had never heard that before.

Minnie nodded. “It’s one of my favorite scriptures. Isaiah 61:3.” She climbed to her feet. “I’m goin’ to finish dinner. Come over when you’re ready.”

“Thank you, Minnie.” Ada rose from her chair. “Rosie and I are lucky to have you and Thomas and the children.”

Tears glittered in her friend’s eyes now. “We’re the lucky ones. And don’t you go forgettin’ it. ’Specially the next time you go disappearin’ into yourself. All right?”

“I won’t.” She offered Minnie a smile—and this time it wasn’t forced.
