Father by Design
After the Civil War, newspaper editor Peter Carpenter insists he'll never marry or raise children in such a troubling world. His commitment to bachelorhood only intensifies as he and his lovely assistant, Trudy Martin, search the ravaged Shenandoah Valley for his missing widowed sister-in-law and her baby.
Ever the optimist, Trudy refuses to embrace Peter's bleak outlook. Unfortunately, that doesn't diminish her deep feelings for him—feelings she knows he'll never reciprocate. But when Peter and Trudy become responsible for two war orphans, will Peter still keep his heart closed to his newfound family…or can he find hope in fatherhood?
