Speak to Me of Love
Longtime fans of Robin Lee Hatcher will find her latest book a bit familiar, but in this case the familiarity leaves only contentment in its wake. The award-winning Hatcher has revamped and retitled her 1996 mainstream romance, Chances Are, and released it as an inspirational romance. Set in Wyoming in the late 1880s, Speak to Me of Love tells the story of Faith Butler, a single mother of two who works as a Shakespearean actress with a travelling troupe. When Faith’s daughter becomes too ill to travel, Faith and her children find themselves left behind in the small town of Dead Horse. When she learns that wealthy recluse Drake Rutledge is looking for a live-in housekeeper, Faith loses no time in applying for the job.
Against his better judgment, the bitter Rutledge gives Faith the job but cautions her to keep her distance. Scarred both inside and out, the last thing Rutledge wants is to become involved with the lovely Christian woman and her welcoming family. However, he soon recognizes that the love he finds with Faith and her children is all part of God’s glorious plan, and he embraces his future with joy. Ms. Hatcher has once again penned a warm, touching story that is sure to please.
