by Nancy Gooding

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Jessie Compton accepts a job as a nanny for the child of a neighboring landowner never suspecting he has ulterior motives.
The end of the Civil War brings many changes in a country that is reeling from the crippling effect of broken trust and misunderstanding. Seventeen year old Jessica Compton is totally unaware of what is happening politically. She is too wrapped up in her own emotions to think about how the country might be faring. In a matter of days Jessie's daydream of happiness becomes a nightmare of murder with all fingers pointed toward a hangman's noose. When despair is at its peak, a stranger brings a liberating truth and Jessie learns faith is not an emotion but a decision.
