To Love and Comfort is a new Historical Christian Romance from Kari Trumbo. It is the fourth book in the Western Vows series.
Margot Fleur is devastated by a secret kept by the man she’s known as her father, tearing her heart to pieces. Struggling with feelings of isolation, she desperately wants to be part of something more; to be whole.
Tyler Wilson longs to sweep Margot off of her feet. Seeing past her imperfections, he loves her for the sparkling spirit and bright dreams she once held so dear and only wants to see her smile again. Strong and determined, he sets out to win her heart but will a stubborn unwillingness to hear the call of the Lord forever keep them apart? And if he doesn’t learn, will Margot be lost forever?
A note from the author: This novel took the longest to write at over one year. I had to write it four times to get it just right. It was a struggle the entire time not only because the main character did not want to deal with where the story had to go. She does get her happily ever after, but she is forced to grow a lot from beginning to end.
Excerpt from To Love and Comfort:
“Where did the 72 depart from?” But he knew the answer before he asked. His face pinched with pain before he the answer was even given.
“Philadelphia, sir. The wreck is about thirty miles straight west of here. Follow the tracks out of town, but be careful. They’ll be trains coming along soon to bring those passengers back. You might want to wait here if you knew someone on the train. Might miss them.”
Tyler backed out the door, his mind a mess of what he’d just heard. She had to be alive. He’d know if she were dead, wouldn’t he? That dreadful feeling meant she needed him, not that she was gone…right? He turned as Jax approached him.
“What did you learn?” He grabbed Tyler’s shoulder and shook him.
“I need a horse, a fast one.”
Jax grabbed his other shoulder. “Just where do you think you’re going?”
Tyler looked up at him and shrugged his hands off. “I have to go get her and the stage will slow me down.”
“You’re sure you know where you’re going?”
“I’ve never been more certain of anything in my life.”
