Addere cochlearium in omnia mentis,
est intelligendum amphorarum numero,
et sextam partem oephi et sudore.
(Into everything, add a spoonful of intellect,
an ounce of understanding, and a gallon of sweat.)
--H. Linn Murphy
With a heart harder than any ruby, Bernadette abandons her stepchildren to a life on the streets of London. Sarah and Josiah are forced to make their living by dragging flotsam from the banks of the Thames to sell for food. Sarah cares for several street urchins, while her young brother goes to work for a gang, cleaning chimneys and acting as a paid mourner-both covers for a theft ring.
Handsome law clerk Andrew Witherwood seems to be Sarah's champion, despite the fact that Bernadette has retained his services. When rumors of the ruby resurface, greedy treasure hunters will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Kidnapping, theft, betrayal, and murder are all on the table. Sarah must find someone she can trust before it's too late.
When champion barrel racer Tamsin Tucker is seriously injured at a rodeo, her whole world crashes around her. She is abandoned in a tiny Utah town, where her leg is amputated to save her life. Tamsin's horse is gone, she has no family, and she feels God has forsaken her. Prospects are bleak.
Through what she later realizes is divine intervention, Tamsin finds friendship with her nurse, Sarah, and Travis Mayfield, the handsome doctor who saves her life. Sarah has her own problems, but a faith that Tamsin can't deny. Travis has ghosts of his own and must learn to trust in God as well.
Getting on her feet isn't going to be easy for Tamsin. But with a newfound purpose, the help of friends, a man who adores her, and the matchless love of her Heavenly Father, she will forge a new life.
