About the Book
Ann Scarlet is no thief, but when the Yankee sheriff catches her she might just steal his heart.
Ann Scarlet has a single goal when journeying from her home in Savannah to Red River Rocks Falls, Nebraska in 1875: find Whittaker and get back the land deed he stole from her brother. It seems simple enough, until Sheriff Crambert finds her with her hands full of money as she rifles through a pile of land deeds.
Nathaniel Crambert has loved and lost before. Ann seems harmless enough and he decides to rehabilitate her into society. Falling for her? That’s not part of the plan. Falling for him? That’s not what she intended either.
With the help of Mol, the woman who raised him, and Quiet Dove, his Lakota friend, Ann and Nathaniel may finally get over the burden of their heavy pasts. If Whittaker appears, Ann will have to follow that trail. But, what about following her heart?
This is a sweet story of love and trust intertwined in its theme in a tender yet moving way. The characters are delicately crafted with their beauty and flaws to portray their unique stories so that they are gently endeared to the heart of a reader.
Annie Lawton is deeply concerned about the future of her brother, Adam, and intends to do something about it. Sheriff Nathaniel Crambert maintains law and order in the towns that he serves. Their worlds collide when each attempts to do what they do best—take care of their own.
In this sparkling story that illustrates love, kindness, misfortune, and a trust in God despite past hurts and bad histories, two hearts meet in a twist of fate, and are able to remain strong and together in what could be termed a remarkably vigorous journey. North Star Home expressed the deep yearnings of the human heart—to be loved, healed and accepted—while softly treading on the beauty of boldness, heroism, trust, hope, and faith.
The first parts of the book may have seemed wishy-washy, but it was well worth it in the end!
