It's 1893 in the town of Gold Mountain and the Snoqualmie ì Valley of Washington state -- several years after the events of ì "Gold Mountain." Into this now peaceful community comes young ì Merrie Cowen, ready to give birth, while searching for the ì husband who has abandoned her.
She will find no lack of those ready to comfort and protect ì her. There's Nils and Katherine Bengston, now proprietors of a ì prosperous inn. There's old Dr. Adams, who recognizes and ì nurtures in Merrie a burning need to help others. There's Brother ì Bill, the itinerant preacher, now ready to settle in Gold ì Mountain and head the church, if only he can find a wife to share ì the duties. And there's Jeff Smith, son of a Southern gentleman ì and owner of a profitable lumber camp -- a man never content with ì where he is, and uncertain what he wants. That is, until he meets ì Merrie.
But Merrie is out of reach of any man, because she is already ì married. And just when he is least wanted, Jim Cowen steps back ì into Merrie's life. Vain, manipulative, delusional, abusive, he ì has made life a hell for Merrie during their brief marriage, and ì now may be a danger to their son. But can she find the strength ì to break free, when she has come to pity him as much as she once ì loved him?
There in the valley -- in her new life, in her friends, in the ì man who has quietly won her heart, and in a mother's love -- she ì must find the answer to that question, and the key to her ì future.
This is a used book.
