Adelaide Langtry may not be as beautiful as her sisters, but she has determination to spare. She’ll need it if she’s to succeed as a schoolteacher in her old hometown and care for the three abandoned siblings she brought from Boston. In Whispering Pines, Addie hopes to establish an orphanage, but she must also contend with her past, including her outlaw brother, Frank.
Orphaned as a boy, Sheriff Jack Roper understands the turmoil faced by Addie’s young charges. Though he tells himself he has all the responsibility he needs, the handsome lawman is quickly charmed by the children, and by the spirited, generous woman intent on helping them. Still, he has his own duty—to capture Frank Langtry and bring him to justice.
When the children’s safety is endangered, Addie and Jack realize how much they’ve come to care for them, and each other. Keeping their ready-made family together is the greatest challenge they’ve known—but it could also be the greatest blessing . . .

“This uplifting novel will keep readers warm all winter.”
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“In the second installment of the Langtry Sisters series, Dunn opens with our main characters arriving with three orphans to her hometown; she hasn’t been back for almost 10 years now. Dunn gives great visual accounts of the town, with well-developed characters. We are introduced to new characters and reintroduced to the main and sub characters from book one. You will enjoy seeing what past characters have been up to. With fast-paced writing, and many unexpected twists and turns, you will want to keep reading to see the outcome. Like the first installment, this book leads the reader to strong emotions and opinions. Conflict begins right from the start.”– RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
