From the Author:

Mini Excerpt:

Amelia sat on the edge of the sofa in the sitting-room as she waited for her father to join her. He had sent a message telling her that he would like a word and she hoped that he would tell her that the horrible nightmare was over. The front door squeaked as it opened and Amelia jumped to her feet. Henry walked into the room and right away reached to embrace her but she stood with her arms crossed. She was still angry at him for what he was putting her through, but glancing at his concerned eyes made her wonder how long she could stay upset with him. "What is it you want to talk about?" She questioned as her arms dropped and began to play with the trim on her apron.

"You've been quiet," Henry stated. He knew that she was upset about his decision but figured that she was over it. "Is there something wrong?"

She cocked her head and looked at him while he took a seat in the arm chair. He was a man who healed the ill but perhaps he was maddening himself, she thought. He couldn't have forgotten the torture he was putting her through. "Yes, this whole engagement is wrong. I can't believe I have to tell you that."

Henry placed his forehead in his hand. He could feel the heat from inside his body rush to the surface of his face. It was foolish to think that she wasn't going to continue fighting for her freedom. He was desperate to give it to her but it would cost him his if he did. Again he made himself act as if he was behind the Samuels and Van Martin union. "Amelia, we aren't going to get into that again. Are we? Don't you realize that I'm trying to do what is best for you?"

Appalled, Amelia answered, "Best for me? You can't possibly think that Thomas is best for me."

Henry stood and faced the window. "The Van Martins are the wealthiest family in the village. You will never have to go without the things you desire, ever again."

"Except love, Father," Amelia snapped. Recalling her conversation with Thomas, she knew that it wasn't in her future. "You forgot love."

Henry could never forget about love. It didn't seem too long before when he fought for the love of his life. Henry thought that he would never put any of his children through a forced marriage but his mistakes had changed all of that. "Why don't you believe me when I say you will love him?"

"Why won't you allow me to marry someone that I do love?" It was an endless battle, she knew, but Amelia had to keep trying.
