Turn Northward, LoveeBook - 1996
Plain. And too ordinary to find love . . . Despite her inherited wealth and successful business, Hannah Vaughn considers herself plain and ordinary, a feeling reinforced for years by her now deceased father. Though her dream is to live a simple life, she is convinced that no man will ever love her for herself, and not just for her money. A thousand miles to the northwest, Dovie Ivey is happily married but has suffered through two traumatic pregnancies, each ending in the death of a desperately wanted infant son. Now more than 40 years old and pregnant for what her husband has vowed will be the last time, Dovie is trying her best to trust that God will grant her a healthy child despite the loving warnings of friends who are afraid another loss will devastate her. Farther south, Edward Carroll and his two children, Holly and Neddy, have come to a temporary standstill following the unexpected death of Edward's wife and the children's mother. Her dream was to settle far away in the verdant bush country of Saskatchewan. Now, killed by a rampant influenza, her body lay under a crudely marked grave on the expansive Canadian prairie. Hannah, Dovie. and the Carrolls-all are at a crossroads that will test their fortitude and faith in God. Each faces odds that seem tantamount to certain defeat. These are their stories in this fourth of the Wildrose Series, told in the masterful and captivating way that has become the trademark of Ruth Glover. Paper.
