  Book Info
Lillian Porter has always wanted to fulfill her mother's dream of going west, so when she hears about a nanny position in Angels Camp, California, she defies her grandfather and takes a chance on a new future. But she quickly wonders if she made the right choice. Murky rumors swirl around Woodward Colton, her new employer, but the gossip doesn't match the man Lillian comes to know.

Still, something dark did happen in the family's past. Lillian's seven-year-old charge hasn't spoken in over a year. Gently, Lillian tries to coax him out of his shell, hoping he'll one day feel safe enough to share what scared him. But the Colton olive farm is no longer a safe place. Lillian encounters suspicious characters on their land and mysterious damage done to the farm. When the housekeeper is brutally attacked, the town once again suspects the worst. Will discovering the truth help Lillian clear the name of the man she has come to love--or will it endanger her even more?
My Review
I really enjoyed this book even more than I thought I would! The book had me hooked from the very beginning. The plot was great, and I enjoyed getting to see the story through the view point of different characters. The characters felt very real, and you could easily see their personalities and struggles. And the faith parts were worked into the book very nicely. It felt like a natural part of the story. The setting was also very beautifully written. It was not overloaded with details, but it was like you were really there with the characters. Plus I really enjoyed the fact that the story took place on an olive farm. It was really neat to get a peek into what life on an olive farm was like. 
  I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
