Levi Grant has high hopes of starting his live over when moving to Spencer, Texas. He takes over a blacksmith shop, ready to earn an honest living and walk away from the time that he spent in prison for a crime he didn’t mean to commit.

But secrets have a way of catching up to a person, no matter what his intentions are.

Eden Spencer is puzzled by the new blacksmith in town. His size alone is intimidating and at first she doubts his intelligence. As he begins to visit the library she owns, they discuss different books and her affection for him grows and deepens. His faith in God is sincere, but when his past becomes common knowledge, will Levi be able to win and keep the heart of the town librarian?

My Thoughts

I absolutely loved the characters in this book. One of the things that I was most impressed with was the effort that she put into the development of Levi Grant. The character has a speech impediment and has difficulty with saying certain letter sounds. Throughout the entire book, the way that Karen Witemeyer directs and rephrases his speech is absolutely amazing {and no small feat}.

It’s because of Levi’s speech impediment that he learned to love literature {to expand his vocabulary} and then comes to develop a relationship with Eden. That same impediment was the root of his past crime ~ both a blessing and a curse at the same time. The true wonder is the redemption of his past and the integrity that he develops as a result of all that happened.
