If you like the novels of Deanne Gist and Lauraine Snelling, you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Henrie’s inspirational romance set against the backdrop of World War One!

Even at a young age, Ada Thorne knew that she would marry only for love, never money. So when she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Ned Henley, the lowly gamekeeper on a neighboring estate, she defies her parents and society by eloping with him to London to build a new life.

Without her family’s support, life in the city is far more difficult than the one of ease and privilege Ada has always known. She’ll find herself relentlessly tested in ways she never imagined—especially when Ned, answering the call of duty, enlists to serve his country in World War One.

Alone and near poverty with a child to raise, Ada’s resolve will be strained at every turn. And as she struggles to remain true to her convictions and live life on her own terms, Ada will embark on a journey of courage, faith, and love that will surpass even her own humble dreams . . .

Tour Excerpt

It’s war, Ned.” Ada didn’t bother to disguise the pleading in her tone. “I don’t want to have to say goodbye; I don’t want you gone.” 
“I don’t want to go,” he admitted in a low voice. His next words sent another shudder through her. “But if it’s right, Ada, I need to go.” 
When he pulled her to him, she went. She shut her eyes and leaned into his touch. Was there anything she could say to persuade him differently? For the first time in their marriage, she suddenly understood what Ned had felt whenever he longed to protect her from something. That’s what she wanted to do in this moment—to protect him and herself. 
“Go enjoy your last evening on holiday,” she managed to say as she stepped back. “I’ll have dinner ready soon.” 
He studied her with concern. “Are you certain?” 
“Yes.” Tears rose into her throat, but she willed them back with a weak smile. 
Giving her hand a squeeze, he turned back toward the grass. Ada headed for the flat at a brisk walk. She usually appreciated her time in the kitchen, her hands busy with the work they now knew so well, which allowed her mind time to think and ponder. But tonight, she wanted to silence her troubled thoughts and the awful premonition growing inside her that whispered this was only the beginning.
