Description

Abigail is just in Moose Creek, Montana for the summer to temporarily care for her great aunt. But a tender-hearted cowboy beckons her to stay.

Abigail Jones intends to spend just one summer in middle-of-nowhere Montana with her Aunt Lucy. Time away from her job is just what Abigail needs to reassess her life. The slow pace has her breathing deeply for the first time in years. And the majestic scenery encourages her to get reacquainted with herself . . . and God.

What she didn't count on was the handsome widowed cowboy who owns the ranch where her aunt lives. When the rancher loses his daughter's nanny, Abigail decides to lend a hand for the summer.

Wade Ryan can't help being attracted to Abigail. But he's given up everything to protect his daughter, and he's not about to risk it all on a pretty face.

Under Abigail's care, Wade's home and daughter thrive. And with Wade's touch, Abigail's heart feels at home at last. But Abigail knows this elusive rancher is hiding something. Will her own secrets separate her from the cowboy who finally captured her heart?

Reading Guides

Reading Group Guide

  1. Though Abigail was raised in a family of faith, she gradually fell away from God as she grew into adulthood. What are some of the distractions and other reasons so many young adults wander spiritually at this time? A close walk with God is always important, but why might young adulthood be a particularly bad time for a spiritual leave of absence?
     
  2. Why do you think Abigail's mom described her as restless? What connection did that have with her spiritual condition?
     
  3. How is our faith like Abigail's floundering vegetable garden? In what ways can Christianity sometimes resemble plastic flowers stuck into the dirt?
     
  4. In Abigail's profession, she's referred to as "the Truthseeker." How is that ironic in relation to her spiritual walk?
     
  5. Discuss (or think about) the meaning of John 14:6. Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life."
     
  6. Something Abigail experienced in childhood shaped who she became professionally. How did significant events in your childhood shape who you are?
     
  7. Deep down, Abigail was trying to right a wrong from her childhood by exposing truth through her column. The relief her articles brought was only temporary, however. Why is self-redemption a waste of time? Have you ever tried to "work off" feelings of guilt or remorse? What did you learn in the process?
     
  8. Abigail's father was a spiritual role model for her. Who did God put in your life to help show you His love? Are you a spiritual role model for someone else?
     
  9. Wade dealt with guilt over his late wife's suicide and worried about letting down people he loved. Have you ever worried you wouldn't be enough for someone? How can trusting in God help you through this barrier?
     
  10. Despite Wade's fears, he became the kind of hero Abigail could lean on. Discuss (or think about) a woman's desire for independence versus her desire to have a real hero in her life. Are the two compatible?
