Dorothy Love's Beyond All Measure

Dorothy Love published more than a dozen novels for young adults in the general market before moving to the CBA to pursue her passion for writing Southern historical fiction.

A former university professor, an avid traveler and amateur historian, she is a nearly lifelong Southerner who shares her home in the Texas hill country with her husband and their two golden retrievers.

Beyond All Measure

Ada Wentworth may be young, but she’s seen enough of life to know she can rely only upon herself. Everyone, including God, it seems, has let her down. Having lost her
family, her fiancĂ©, and her fortune, Ada journeys from Boston to Hickory Ridge for a position as a lady’s companion. Though initially charmed by the pretty little town in the foothills of the Great Smokies, Ada plans to stay only long enough to earn enough to establish a millinery shop back east.

Her employer, Wyatt Caldwell, the local lumber mill owner, is easily the kindest, most attractive man Ada has met in Hickory Ridge. He believes Providence has brought her to town and into his life. But how, after so many betrayals, can she ever trust again? Besides, Wyatt has a dream of his own. One that will one day take him far from Hickory Ridge.
As the South struggles to heal in the aftermath of the Civil War, one woman learns to let go of her painful past in order to embrace God’s plans for her. Can she trust Him, and Wyatt, with her future and her heart?
