In the early 1900s, quiet and reserved Molly Lund finds refuge from her past at the Nelsons' farm in Minnesota. In an attempt to turn a new page in her life, Molly works at making peace with her losses and coming to terms with the disfiguring burns on her face.
Samuel Woodson, the Nelsons' hired hand, carries his own cares. Split from his family and bearing a burden of misplaced guilt for an act that haunts him, Samuel-seeing past Molly's scars-draws her out of her self-protective shell.
Molly and Samuel form a friendship, but just as their hearts lead them deeper, an unexpected guest comes calling, demanding what's his.
Will Molly and Samuel find a way to be together or will they be separated, due to impediments beyond their control? Can they trust in God's plan and travel a path that heals the hurts of the past?
Readers of historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and Christian historical romance will delight in this beautifully wrought story of the healing power of love.
”A heartwarming story of healing from external and internal scars. Through some of life's harder lessons the characters learn to trust, forgive, and find second chances out of the ashes of pain and loss.” —Anne Perreault, author of eighteen inspirational novels, including the Yellowstone series
”A beautifully written portrait of the past, and dramatic historical fiction at its best. A slow-burning romance with dual narration for a fully immersive experience. This story feels archetype, unfolding with exquisite execution.” —Self-Publishing Review
“Firmly rooted in a sense of place and moral dilemmas that send each character on a separate journey, On Bur Oak Ridge is a fine choice for readers interested in women's fiction, historical novels, and heartfelt journeys that tug at the emotions.” —Donavon's Literary Services
