Daniel Dunn thought his life couldn't get any worse. His beloved wife died giving birth to their only son, and he was left to care for and feed his five children, but how could he do that when he needed to get back to the lumber camps to earn some money? Now this lumberjack's murder was being pinned on him as well as the recent robberies in town. Why was he being framed? What would happen to his children if he was in jail? And why did the only person who seemed to believe in him have to be a preacher who dogged his steps and kept a running sermon going in his ear? Mercy Crane had been jilted by a man once and vowed to never let it happen again, but seeing the five motherless children in need meant involving herself t only with them, but also with their father. If only he weren't in the picture... Greatly Beloved is the first book in Margo Hansen's Tall Timber Trilogy. Enter the era of the lumber boom in 1888 rthern Minnesota's forests and see how God changes lives and hearts even in the most difficult situations.
