When James Wallin appears in Seattle asking for her to take the teaching job at Wallin Landing Rina is very distrustful. Even knowing her friend is married to James’ brother doesn’t do much to ease her concern. But Rina must take chances and trust the Lord if she’s going to overcome her present circumstances.
James hasn’t felt trustworthy since his father died and he uses humor to ease his guilty conscience. There’s just something about Rina, though, that makes him want to be a man she can trust and admire.
Can James forgive himself before he loses Rina to whomever is trying to scare her off?
Reading, writing and. .. frivolity?
I loved Frontier Engagement! Each Regina Scott book is better than the last.
In Frontier Engagement specifically, I loved Rina and Simon. Rina has a strong personality, she may have been victimized but she’s not a victim. Simon had been living his life in the shadow of guilt. He can’t seem to get past it to forgive himself. Together they make quite a pair especially since neither is able to trust.
