Ransomed Hope by Deborah Pierson Dill
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick…”
Seventeen years ago, Ashley Turner lost her father as well as Manuel Vega, the man she loved. Since then, she’s been trying to make the best of a bad situation. Now a widow, burdened with the alcoholic brother who bankrupted the family ranch, and days from foreclosure, she’s beyond hoping for her situation to improve. Ashley knows God allows adversity for a reason, but she can’t begin to comprehend the purpose in her troubles.
"…But a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
When Manuel makes good on his promise to return after having been harshly turned out so many years ago, Ashley dares to hope that all is not lost. His intention is not to rescue her, however, but rather to pursue revenge for past wrongs. But he soon discovers that his hardened heart is no match for her renewed hope.
