Frances’s Destiny (Faith Creek Brides, Book 11)

(2 customer reviews)


Frances Harman has spent a lifetime living out of suitcases, a staunch supporter of her papa as he builds an empire as a hotelier. A quiet soul, happiest when out of sight, left alone to pursue her own interests and happiness, she has never felt the lack of companions or excitement in her life. 

Yet, since his remarriage, she has been forced into a new world, one of parties and balls and afternoon promenades, and has found herself overshadowed by her beautiful stepsister, Maria, in every way. But in a moment of uncharacteristic bravado, she responds to a matrimonial advertisement in the newspaper. The life of a debutante is not for her, but why should she not search out a life that might suit her better?

Dr Marlon Carter has not been in Faith Creek long and for a time rather thought himself in love with his partner’s delightful bride, Susanna. But his desire for his own wife and family has begun to play upon his mind. A town doctor should have a wife, after all. But can he reconcile the actions and troubles of his past and allow himself to enjoy the love and affection that could be his for the taking?

  1. Patricia Reichardt

    Frances is a different personality than we have seen go to Faith Creek in the past, and she is fun and refreshing. Traveling with her father all of her life to destinations for his work, Frances ends up corresponding with the new Dr, Marlon Carter. He has settled in Faith Creek as the medical practice grows and is longing to have the happiness he sees his colleagues have found. When Frances ends up in Faith Creek, the two are attracted to each other. Marlon holds a secret close to his heart that he is afraid no woman will ever be able to forgive, so is not sure about marrying Frances. Will their love be strong enough to see past it? Will Frances want to return home to her stepmother and pretentious stepsister? Life in Faith Creek is never boring! This story is heartwarming and loving.

    I have enjoyed Alan Taylor again with this story. Warm and rich, his voice is perfect for historical westerns.

    Sweet Historical Romance

    I’m always so shocked when the characters find love so quickly! I know this series is all very short books, but it’s still a bit mind blowing to me.
    I liked the hidden past of the doctor’s life! It was a different and unique situation! Karla really puts a lot of thought into each story and obstacle they must overcome! As many books as she writes, each one is surprisingly different!
