Like the first two book in the Montana Skies Series, HAILEE by PENNY ZELLER, is a sweet romance, one that will take you back in time to the late 1800’s. It’s a heartwarming story with characters you’ll fall in love with. A great read for those new to Christianity as well as the young and old alike.
Hailee Annigan’s life is turned upside down when she’s arrested for stealing food in order to survive. If it had been just Hailee she may not have gone to such extreme, but she was responsible for her two younger brothers after their parent’s untimely death.
Arrested, Hailee had two choices. Jail or The Sanctuary of Promise, a place for orphans and wayward children. Grudgingly, she opted for The Sanctuary of Promise. She wanted nothing more than to escape so she could get back to her brothers. After all, they were her responsibility and feared what would become of them.
In time, Hailee finds her faith and pursues her dream to become a teacher. When she’s offered a job in Pine Haven, Montana, she’s reluctant to go, fearful her brothers will never find her. Upon arrival at her new home, Hailee meets the young, attractive pastor, Maxwell Nathaniel Adams Jr, otherwise known as Nate.
Nate is all too happy to discover Pine Haven’s new school teacher is not the old spinster he envisioned. In fact she’s quite the opposite and he is immediately attracted to her. If he’s not mistaken, she’s attracted to him as well. But something is pulling her away, and he means to find out what that is.
Will faith and love bring Nate and Hailee together, despite their past.
