Summary

Marriage has been difficult for Faith Nolan. Her husband Roger, Pine Ridge's mercantile owner, likes his liquor and turns mean when he indulges. However, it is his unwillingness to help others that grieves Faith's tender heart the most.
Nathan Bartlett, the logging-camp owner, has always taken his responsibilities seriously. He offers protection to the residents of the small town, including Roger, on the occasion when the local Indians have risen up against the townsfolk. When Nathan's pre-paid supply shipment doesn't arrive in time, his camp's provisions run dangerously low. He appeals to Roger for help, but the selfish mercantile owner refuses to extend Nathan credit.
Horrified, Faith drives a wagon load of supplies to the camp while Roger sleeps off his latest bender. Roger realizes what Faith has done, and, once she returns, beats her unconscious. When she comes to, she finds her husband nearby, dead in a pool of his own blood.
While on trial for the murder, Faith finds peace in God's love and witnesses Nathan's true feelings, when he makes a sacrifice for Faith far exceeding anything Roger ever did.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this engrossing second installment of her Women of Hope historical series, Aiken (For Such a Time as This) delivers a beautiful, inspirational slice of life set in 1880s Oregon. Faith Nolan is a woman of faith surviving an abusive marriage, reluctant to leave because of her vows. When her husband is found dead, Faith must make her way as a widow and prove her innocence with the help of friends she didn't know existed. Gradually recognizing her own strength, she maintains her relationship with God throughout everything-a belief that is bolstered by the women who take her under their wing and the man who takes her to heart. Not only is Faith's life showcased, but the narrative also includes a recurring theme of female empowerment during a time when women's rights were little recognized or respected. Rich with detail, the events unfold very naturally, though a somewhat rushed ending feels incomplete and almost an afterthought. Agent: Steve Laube Agency. (June 18) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
