When an unforeseen accident tramples her dreams, Selena trudges through a desert of loneliness caring for an invalid husband. Finding herself a widow at twenty-eight, she grasps at the chance to experience a new life. Answering an advertisement for a marriage of convenience, she agrees to the platonic arrangement in order to care for the man’s young son. Leaving her home in Illinois, she travels by train to Oregon to discover a very different world from the one she left behind. Mesmerized by the beauty of this new land, she finds faith and fulfillment, but she never expects to find love.
Dirk lost his wife long before his son’s birth. Bitterness and pain solidified his emotions like the snowpack on Mt. Hood. He needs a mother for his son, but nothing more, so he places his request: No pictures necessary, references only. Selena agrees to the arrangement, but her heart interferes. Will Selena’s patient endurance be enough to melt her husband’s frozen heart?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Facebook: Facebook profile
Christian, wife, mother, grandmother. Born in Rhode Island, I've had the privilege of living on both beautiful coasts. Dramatically different each location resonates the beauty of the Creator. Like my excursion moving across the nation, life itself is a journey. One that twists and turns along the way with mountains of triumph and valleys of despair, but throughout the process I find the Lord ever present, going before me and lighting my way. Praise be to Him.
Spring Thaw by Tammy Fish is just a wonderful, exciting story. It’s not the same old stories you read about mail order brides. It is an uniquely different kind of story.
This is the first book I’ve read of Tammy Fish and I must say it is fantastic. I would love to see this book become a series.
Dirk’s first wife left him and their son. Selena’s husband was in a horrible accident and never was himself again. After both of their mates died Dirk wants a mother for his young son, but not a real marriage.
Dirk and Selena both want a marriage so they can raise his son, but nothing more. They have both been hurt and just don’t know if they can ever trust another person again.
Follow these two as they go through many trials and seasons. Will they find out about trust and love that only comes from God and will they find the love for each other that they really need?
I truly did enjoy this book. So glad I read it. I highly recommend this book Spring Thaw. Excellent!
