Rumors and Promises

Rumors and PromisesRumors and Promises by Kathleen Rouser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sophie Biddle has few expectations when she arrives in Stone Creek. She and 2-year-old Caira need a place to live and an income. Taking the job at a boarding house will fit both needs. Shelter, food, and enough money to purchase material to replace their worn-out clothing is the best she can hope for. Meeting handsome Ian McCormick isn’t in her plans. With the secret she must protect, there is no place in her life for a man. Especially not a man of the cloth.

Charming story set in turn-of-the-20th century Michigan, my home state. Sophie’s tragic circumstances will tug at your heart. There’s an encouraging message of forgiveness, both human and divine. The element of adult content (which all happens “off camera” as they say and very delicately handled) makes this a better choice for readers age 15 and above.
