In this captivating novella by Dawn Crandall, Nicholette Everstone is already a widow at the age of twenty-two: her husband was murdered on their wedding day. She has just returned to Boston after two years of mourning in Europe. Although her husband was loving, the marriage was an arranged one, and Nicholette would like to wed again--this time for love...and to someone safe.

As she acclimates to life in Back Bay again, Nicholette meets someone she can't help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices Cal Hawthorne takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of "what if" at bay?


I really enjoy reading Dawn Crandall’s books. In this novella, which you can read in no time at all. You’ll keep turning the pages and before you know it you’re at the end. Nicholette is a young woman who loses her husband in an unexpected and tragic way. But she has some thoughts of what she wants in a marriage if she was to marry again. Can she open herself up to a young man who might or might not be safe?
