"It's just as easy to love a rich man as a poor man," the adage goes. But is the dream of fancy clothes, mansions, and fine dining worth compromising your morals and faith? Sarah McCabe must find her answer in Andrea Boeshaar's Uncertain Heart, book two in the Seasons of Redemption series.
The Civil War is over. Sarah longs to escape the country and experience the finer things in life, so she leaves her home in Jericho Junction, Missouri, to become a governess in Milwaukee. Her rich and dashing employer, Brian Sinclair, shows an attraction to Sarah but doesn't share her beliefs.
Richard, however, does. Richard Navis is Mr. Sinclair's steward. He is kind, thoughtful, handsome...and harbors an unfortunate desire to leave his city job to be a farmer. Sarah has no interest in a rural farm life, even while her interest in Richard grows. Does she sacrifice love to get the lifestyle she wants? Or will love be enough?
When a young, aspiring music teacher takes on a position as a governess - she soon finds that there is more to discovering her independence than once thought. But it comes at a price. Young Sara McCabe must choose between the life and love God is clearly showing her or will she fall prey to the deceitful, misgivings of a shrewd and worldly employer.
Will she stay true to her faith, or is she willing to compromise her morals to live the life she always dreamed of?
