Light To My Path 

    How could something so beautiful on the outside be so rotten on the inside?
    When Sam discovers the truth about his money-grabbing fiancée, he breaks off their engagement and makes plans to head back to Colorado alone. Disillusioned, he determines never to get caught by a woman again. But then, Aunt Tabitha asks a favor of him, and he couldn’t turn her down.
    Eldora Carter, jobless, homeless, and family-less, finds herself suddenly in charge of escorting three orphaned children across country on the train from Missouri to Colorado. What should have been an easy job, however, quickly becomes a nightmare as each child presents their own crisis. If it wasn’t for Sam Mackenzie, they’d all have been put off the train long ago.
    When an avalanche halts their progress, Sam and Eldora both must learn to trust God like never before. Life, health, safety, security…even family and love. Can God be trusted to put things together when, despite all their efforts, they’ve failed so miserably?

    Should he marry to please his church or follow his heart? Pastor Silas Hamilton has always been of the opinion that when he meets the woman God intends for him to marry, he’ll know her immediately. And so far, she hasn’t appeared, despite the determined machinations of one particular mother in his congregation.

    And then it happens. Walking along the creek one day, he rescues a young woman from a near-fall into the water…and though they part ways without exchanging names, her fascinating gray eyes and the mysterious connection he felt with her remain foremost in his mind.

    It isn’t until later, when he attends a play at the newly opened theater in town that he realizes his dreams have been caught up in the lovely Willow Starr—an actress bound for the bright lights of New York City.

    But can a pastor love an actress? Would an actress abandon the stage for life in Martin City? And what about that mother, determined to claim the pastor for her daughter?
