All in Good Time is the newly released 2nd book in Maureen Lang's "Gilded Legacy" series. I really enjoyed Bees in the Butterfly Garden and couldn't wait to read this one!
The main character, Dessa, is incredibly stubborn and has an exceptionally hard time being patient. Flaws and all, she's incredibly sweet and likeable. She's got a dream and though she doesn't wait for God to step in and help her out, He does so anyway. All in Good Time is a wonderful picture of the way God redeems our failures when we screw things up royally. It's a quick read with a fast-flowing storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat, wanting to find out exactly how all the pieces are going to fit together in the end.
Dessa Caldwell has a dream: to open Pierson House, a refuge for former
prostitutes in Denver’s roughest neighborhood. But after exhausting all
charitable donations, Dessa still needs a loan, and nearly every bank in
town has turned her down. Her last hope hinges on the owner of Hawkins
Henry Hawkins has a secret: though he owns the
most successful bank in town, his initial capital came from three
successful raids on Wells Fargo coaches. Now he’s the most eligible
bachelor in Denver, but to protect his criminal past, he’s built a
fortress around his heart. Not even the boldest matchmaking mother can
tempt him... until the day Dessa Caldwell ventures into his bank
requesting a loan.
Though he’s certain her proposal is a bad
investment, Henry is drawn to Dessa’s passion. But that same passion
drives her to make rash decisions about Pierson House... and about
whom she can trust. One man might hold the key to the future of her
mission—but he also threatens to bring Henry’s darkest secrets to light.
As the walls around their hearts begin to crumble, Henry and Dessa must
choose between their plans and God’s, between safety and love.
