To Catch a Hummingbird
by Mindy Steele
Since her father’s death, twenty-three-year-old Lydia Miller stays busy, trying to keep the family farm afloat. It leaves little time to think and to regret what she did. Her mother runs the local bakery and unexpectedly sells their home without Lydia’s thoughts on the matter. Worse, they now must live with the local widower, and Lydia is expected to care for his children. Nothing in life has prepared her for the resistance she will face or the quick attachments she makes.
Widower Silas Graber fell right into the Bishop’s plan. He did need help, but he thought he was getting Hazel Miller not her daughter with a chip on her shoulder. Her ways are nothing like his late wife’s, and it’s clear she knows nothing about raising children.
However, he can’t help but notice how she quickly breathes life back into his world. And his children notice it, too. Before long, she has become a part of their lives, and she starts learning to leave the past behind her. And falls in love. But she’s not so certain Silas is ready to give his heart away again. Neither is he.
