The Hidden HeartBook - 1998
"4 1/2 Stars. Pick of the Month. In this beautiful love story, two hearts seek God's redemption, one sin-scarred, the other wounded and terrified of falling in love. Jane Orcutt's name may be fairly new to readers, but her work is every bit as fantastic as veteran authors, and like cream, she's certain to rise to the top." --Romantic Times Elizabeth Cameron Seeking to leave her troubled past behind, nineteen-year-old Elizabeth Cameron decides to join a religious group in Belton, Texas. There she believes she and five-year-old Joseph, her Indian charge, will be hidden from a cruel world. But fear for Joseph's safety keeps her from betraying the terrible secret that the child is more dear to her heart than she can ever claim. Caleb Martin A former gunfighter and robber, Caleb Martin reluctantly agrees to escort Elizabeth to Belton. He'll do anything to receive a governor's pardon, even if it means watching over the irritatingly prim young woman. After this final assignment, he'll finally have what he wants most of all--his freedom. Yet along the way, he learns that there may be something else he needs even more. Elizabeth and Caleb soon find their lives--and hearts--intertwined. But can their love break through their shields of self-protection and secrecy, to reach and heal The Hidden Heart?
