From bestselling author Lori Wick comes the moving second book in the Big Sky Dreams series. Sabrina Matthews, a young prostitute in the rough frontier city of Denver, is befriended by a police officer and his wife. Because of their kindness, she listens to what they have to say about Jesus and believes in Him. Sabrina stays with Danny and Callie until she's ready to make a fresh start in a new town. She boards the train for the long trip to Token Creek in Montana Territory, where she meets Jeanette Fulbright and is befriended by the church family and many of the townsfolk there. All is well until she finds herself falling for Pastor Rylan Jarvik, who has begun to care for her as well. Will she be able to tell him about her past? How will Rylan respond? A moving novel about past mistakes and forgiveness—both from God and people.

"In the 1880s frontier town of Denver, Colorado, Danny, a kind policeman, and his wife, Callie, offer help to the beautiful prostitute Sabrina. With warmth and empathy, Jill Shellabarger depicts Sabrina's acceptance, which gives her hope and a new life in Christ. Shellabarger's optimistic characterization of Sabrina as she begins a new life contrasts sharply with her later fear of exposure when she travels to the Montana Territories. Shellabarger powerfully portrays Sabrina's compulsion to turn around the lives of the young women who are practicing prostitution there. With careful pacing Shellabarger also portrays Sabrina's growing interest in the town's pastor. Shellabarger gives a polished performance as the author explores themes of forgiveness and new beginnings. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
