Rebuffed in his proposal of marriage by the woman that he loves and suffering through the lingering pain of a family tragedy, this heir of noble blood is compelled to reexamine his foundations. What Andrew discovers in the process is a link to ancient Caledonia, a highland heritage that will forever change the way he looks at the world. As the ancient legends begin to shed light on Andrew’s place in the world, he makes attempts to rekindle the love he has lost. At the same time, a resurgent Scotland rises to reclaim the glory of its storied past

Brianna and Colleen O’Leary know their Irish immigrant father expects them to marry well. Recently he’s put even more pressure on them, insinuating that the very future of their Long Island horse farm, Irish Meadows, rests in their ability to land prosperous husbands. Both girls, however, have different visions for their futures.

Bestselling Author Tracie Peterson Launches Exciting New Series Set in 1890s Montana

She also longs for tenderness and love, both of which are missing in her life. Yet when she realizes she’s losing her heart to the intriguing new man in camp, she fiercely fights her feelings, afraid that love will only result in disappointment and heartache.
Caeden Thibault, a young geologist, comes to Montana to catalog minerals indigenous to the state. He’s a serious and guarded young man trying to escape the pain of his past. He has avoided all romantic entanglements, fearing he might become like his abusive father. But something about Emily Carver has caught his attention, something he never expected. . . .
Will these two broken souls allow God to bring healing and hope to their hurting hearts?
We can take our world for God by giving the ministry to laymen who are using their gifts to grow their groups, to double their groups every two years or less. A group of ten that doubles every eighteen months will reach a thousand people in ten years. It is happening. It is happening like never before.
Bill Hybels spoke at North Point’s fifteen-year anniversary. He described North Point by saying it is the fastest movement in history. How did they do it? Doubling groups that are growing through hospitality are two key components. They are two components every church can use to reach their community.
May God richly bless your efforts to reach people for Him. We must work in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must work in faith. We must work in humility. May God richly bless His work through His people for His glory.
