In this novel Mariette Puttnam has returned home after graduating from high school to face the future ahead of her. Her father wishes her to go on to college so that she can take over the family business while her mother wishes for her to become a proper young woman and settled down into marriage and doing all the things a young woman of breeding should. One day she runs into Thayne Scott in the stairwell of her fathers factory.

Risking all these two take matter into their own hands and marry little realizing that the road ahead of them will be a rocky one. Especially when Thayne decides that he wants to be a minister. Pick up this book and follow along with Thayne and Mariette as they try to make their marriage work and face the daily challenges that will arise in their lives.

I really enjoyed reading this novel and following along with the lives of the characters. This was a great story about following your heart and that no matter how hard the road you must always stay true to each other. It was a great story about living your own life and making your own decisions regardless of how others may feel. Sometimes we have to step out on faith and trust God to lead the way. It also shows just how important communication is to any relationship and that love can indeed conquer all.
