Cathy Marie Hake is a licensed nurse who worked for many years in an oncology unit before shifting her focus to prenatal care. The author of over twenty novels, she lives with her husband in Anaheim, California.From Booklist:
Millicent Fairweather hoped and prayed that America would offer her the chance to build a new and better life. While crossing the Atlantic on the aptly named Opportunity, Millicent finds herself accepting a temporary job taking care of widower Daniel Clark’s son. The job becomes permanent, though, when the ship arrives in New York, and Millicent faces deportation along with her sister Isabelle after Isabelle’s husband is killed before they can become U.S. citizens. Daniel’s offer of marriage seems like the answer to Millicent’s prayers since it would allow both her and Isabelle to stay in the country. What Millicent doesn’t realize is that Daniel has fallen in love with her, and he is determined to find a way to win her love for real. Faith, love, and lots of praying provide the foundation for the relationship that develops between an energetic, optimistic heroine and a hero learning to love again in Hake’s latest richly emotional inspirational romance. --John Charles
